I was so happy to provide the emcee services for the DHL Dinner and Dance party. DHL is one of the most renowned and respected delivery companies, and I really take my hat off to all the hard working people that send deliveries all around the world for us without a hitch. I’m sure it’s a very stressful, nerve wracking job, especially keeping track of all the deliveries and making sure they get to the right destination and the right people, on time.
What a fun, lively, enthusiastic crowd!
That’s why I wanted to make sure we gave them with my emcee services, an opportunity to de-stress and have a happy, exciting and engaging night.
Did they ever!!! It was a really fun loving crowd of about 500 people, and many nationalities, – ready and raring to party.
I think DHL bosses are great. For the opening gambit, my dancers were supposed to escort the VIP, HOD’s (heads of departments) followed by the organising committee down a red carpet, but the big boss said – “No”! We will open the doors for the organising committee, and they will go first, we will follow them. They are the stars of the night, and they are the ones who did all the work”. Wow, that blew me away. How many bosses are that humble and recognise the efforts of their staff? Providing emcee services this is rare to see.
The party didn’t really have a theme, but I guess because there was a ‘Best Dressed’ competition, people really took the opportunity to go all out & play dress up.
People were dressed in all kinds of costumes from around the world. Including Spanish, Thai, Egyptian, Arabian, Chinese Emperor & Chinese Empress, Cleopatra & Amun Rah, Traditional Malay, Indian & Cheong Sam, Cowboys, Sumatran Head Hunters – the list goes on & on.
There were two segments of long service awards presentations.
We had to split it into two, as there were 59 recipients. From this alone I could see that DHL definitely must take care of their people, because so many staff has stayed with them for so long. In fact, in my years of performing and providing emcee services, this is one of the largest number of people to be receiving long service awards in a night.
After the 2nd segment of the long service awards presentation was over, there was still another highlight segment – “Best Employee Of The Year”. There were 13 winners here, as each department & division had a “Best Employee Of The Year” winner. For these segments, a fabulous guy called Saiful took over, which was a great opportunity for me & my girls as we had a chance to change costume & have a breather. Thank you Saiful!
After that we were back up on stage, full on with the fun, games and excitement, non- stop without a break. The audience loved every minute of the night and threw themselves full swing into the party as I offered my emcee services to the max.
In fact, when the night & the party finished, no-one wanted to leave. Everyone was milling around, talking, taking photos, looking at everyone’s costume and just chit chatting & enjoying each others company. For a dinner and dance emcee delivering emcee services, there’s always something very heart-warming about this.
It’s such a shame the ballroom was too crowded for the event company to put in a dance floor, it really was packed to the brim, otherwise, as a emcee for the dinner and dance, I’m sure the audience would have loved to dance the night away. Or at least until the hotel chased them away.
All in all it was a really fun night
Thanks to the enthusiastic participation of everyone.
I would also like to thank the event company Ryan and all the staff from the event company “ERS” for doing a great job in organising and set-up. The sound system set up was really terrific and the guys doing the sound, lighting and photography were really great. We really appreciate all your hard work guys, thank you so much.
Of course, my own emcee services team, my two lovely, gorgeous girls and my fabulous VJ/DJ made the night spectacular – as usual, thanks a million guys.
