Hi,
Do you have any draft Master of Ceremony for a formal occasion or a workshop?
My boss asked me to be Master of Ceremony for the workshop that will be attended by Minister of Finance. So, it will be the formal occasion. The problem is, my English is so messy. Thus, this is my first performance and until now (5 day before D-day), I still don't know what I have to say on that occasion.
I need some advise what words I have to say for opening the workshop, introducing the speaker, continuing from one to another session, and closing the workshop with the formal language.
I'm waiting for the advise. Thank you..

I don't have a draft. Does your boss have any more guidance for you? If someone in your company has acted as Master of Ceremonies in a similar situation, that person may have some good advice for you.

I think it would help to find out as much as you can about what is supposed to happen, who the speakers are, what topics will be covered, who the audience is, how much time is allowed, etc. Then you can start to write a very basic script for yourself. If you have questions about certain phrases, you can post them here.
