What makes a top MC a master of the task?

What is the value-add for that big awards event, on which you’re spending many thousands of rand in order to recognise and endorse the fine achievements your company?

Is it okay to let Brian from accounts handle all the intros and announcements and stuff?

Or does your company need a professional MC, who is equal to the high standards that you demand of yourselves in your own discipline? Someone who understands the form, the finer detail, the rigour, discipline, good humour and confidence that glues a fine ceremony together. Someone who makes you look good.

When you’ve experienced the best, it’s a complete no-brainer.

‘Elegant’, ‘gracious’, ‘charming’, ‘gorgeous’, ‘glamorous’, ‘professional’, ‘loved by all generations’. A quick internet search throws up all of these descriptors about the truly vivacious, intelligent and informed Ursula (Stapelfeldt) Chikane. 

A regular contributor to 360 Degrees corporate event productions, Ursula is always regarded as a highly valued member of the team. Her research is impeccable. She comes to each event having thoroughly prepared the script and background to the event. 

She knows and understands the client company’s core business, their latest innovations and their current profile in the world of business. She knows who is part of the leadership and management teams and she makes it her business to make every person who steps on stage feel comfortable and at ease.

She checks and re-checks the pronunciation of every name (How do YOU pronounce Labuschagne?) and she is unfailingly calm, good-humoured and un-ruffled.

Ursula is also principled and ethical about the brands with which she is prepared to align herself. 

In addition to her sterling professionalism, Ursula is loved by the 360 Degrees event production team, because she makes no fussy hospitality demands, is always immaculately presented, and is always warm, bubbly, approachable and accommodating.

Ms Chikane proves that, as a top M of Ceremony, she’s worth her weight in gold.
