As an emcee for corporate events, I get to work in fabulous hotels, for fabulous Companies, who come up with fabulous themes.
This event was for Talisman Energy, and the hard working event company doing all the behind the scenes work was Soft Pillow Mollycoddle.
“La Cosa Nostra”
I was lucky once again to be their emcee for corporate events. The last event I hosted for them was an underwater theme, “Under the Sea” where I dressed as a mermaid & the ballroom was done up to really look like we were under water, so I was really interested to see what this years theme would be. Guess what? It was “La Cosa Nostra”!
Oh Oh, I was really perplexed – what is “La Cosa Nostra”? Then the event company told me it was a “Mafia” theme. Yeh, as their emcee for the corporate events, I love the thought of such interesting themes, especially this one, where I got to ‘threaten’ & ‘intimidate’ the crowd ‘Mafia’ style with my ‘tommy’ gun!
The theme was carried through from start to finish. The corporate event that I emceed was held in the very grand Majestic Hotel, with its ‘Great Gatsby’ vibe.
Pre-Event With Mafia Body Guards
The pre-event had a chair where you could take photos as the ‘Godfather’ plus casino tables laid out. The entrance to the ballroom was guarded by body guards, and the ballroom itself was decked out in true splendour, with black table clothes & black & red being the main colour theme of the night.
As an emcee for corporate events, it is always a great thrill when the company themselves also want to be performers for the night. And tonight was no exception. There was a ‘flash mob’ dance in the beginning to Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It’, and a skit put on which depicted the ‘family’ in true Mafia style.
Fantastic In-House Staff Performance
Also later in the night, the winners from Talismans Idol competition last year out did themselves by putting up a 30 minute sketch which was a mini theatre production in itself.
The party was really fun, with a lot of machine guns going off everywhere & the whole audience really took the theme to heart & played up at every occasion.
As an emcee for corporate events, it’s so exciting to have such an interesting theme to play around with as my team and I really like to customize the shows especially for the clients and the event companies, so as to make the theme really come to life.
It was an amazing night full of colour & enthusiasm, in fact, we lost track of time and the party finished quite late. We were lucky the hotel didn’t chase us out, but it seems the hotel staff were also having a whale of a time & didn’t mind that the event didn’t end on time.
We really look forward to doing another event for Talisman & Soft Pillow Mollycoddle – my biggest delight as an emcee for corporate events, is wondering what will be the theme???
