As a dinner and dance MC providing emcee services, I’m always amazed by the incredible lucky draw gifts that the companies prepare for their guests just before the Chinese New Year.
HSL Construction Pte Ltd was no exception, they had an amazing array of prizes – Salvatore Ferragamo wallets for 2, Kate Spade Handbag, Ipad, Macbooks, but the 1st prize was a ‘shocker’ for me. When I saw the lucky draw list, I thought it was a gold coin, but when I announced the prize & the lucky winner exploded onto the stage – it wasn’t a gold coin – it was a 20oz gold bar! Wow, the winner was leaping & bounding in the air – what a great gift to get just before the new year! The horse looks like it’s off to a good start for the winner.
Glitz & Glamour Is A Popular Dinner And Dance Theme
It was a terrific show, with about 500 people in attendance, held at the Pan Pacific Hotel. The theme was a night of Glitz and Glamour, so, naturally the guests came dressed to impress. And impress they did.
When I provide emcee services for dinner and dances, there is often a ‘Best Dressed’ competition, and for HSL they also wanted to reward their guests that made the effort to look fabulous for the night. Five males and 5 females were shortlisted, and for both the male and female contestants, the big boss and his wife were sporting enough to come up when their names were called. They both looked lovely, but the big boss walked away with best dressed male. He had a glittering scarf over his immaculate suit, and his hair was sprayed with glitter spray, making him a force to be reckoned with.
HSL is a construction company, and this year marks a new beginning for them. They are moving into their new 50 million dollar premises, and the big boss is stepping down and moving into an advisory capacity and the successor will be taking over the running of the company.
It was a very touching story to see the company grow and expand and as the emcee services provider, I could really feel their efforts on this journey. It was heart-warming to see them progress so much, and I could really feel that this year is a new beginning for them in many ways.
A Company That Gives Back
This year, they have also embarked on a philanthropic program, where they really want to share what they have been blessed with and to give back to the community. It’s really wonderful companies have this kind of large heartedness. Yes, as the chairman said, ‘Businesses must make money, but we must also take our social responsibilities just as seriously’.
When the Chairman handed over the reins to the new CEO, and he came up to make his first speech in his new capacity, he was very clear in where he wanted to lead the company, very grateful to all his mentors, teachers & staff, and this year he asked that they also relax more & have fun and that was delivered as part of my emcee services rendered.
Emcee Services Testimonial From The Incoming CEO
That’s where I came in. With my fantastic team in place, who make my emcee services a breeze, we took over the night, that was all the encouragement we needed. If the boss said ‘have fun’, then ‘have fun we must’. So from then on, it was a night full of fun & games & merriment, with everyone throwing themselves into the action .
Everything wrapped up by 11.30pm with a speech by one of the bosses, and the final moments of the event were dedicated to still giving out more prizes to their staff. All in all, about 100 people walked away with great prizes. But everyone in the audience walked away with one one the most beautiful door gifts I’ve ever seen when emceeing in Singapore. It was a custom made tea-pot and cup set, decorated in China Blue design. I was even lucky enough to be given one, thank you HSL.
Whenever I provide emcee services for a dinner and dance, I don’t often get to take a photo with the Boss and the committee team, but on the HSL show I was really lucky, while the hard working event company – Emotive Concepts were doing all the hard work of packing up, I managed to get a lovely photo with the HSL team. This is a great memento for me.
Once again, a big thank you to Jacqueline & Ferris and their team from Emotive Concepts for all their hard work.
