A good Emcee should energise and engage an audience, add thought-provoking content throughout the day, ask intelligent questions and be able to debate the issues with every speaker. They are the face of the event, the host, both on stage and during networking breaks and dinners. Above all the audience should respect them, not just for their Emcee skills but for their understanding of the industry, the congress theme and the issues under discussion.

Emcee Squared is an MC product that goes beyond a simple on-stage host. Delivering across four key pillars, it sets the bar for what an MC should be.

Ken’s reputation as one of the most sought-after keynote speakers is partly due to his sheer energy, charm and on-stage presence. Add relevant and bespoke content to the mix, short intelligent inter-speaker presentations all day, a powerful keynote address, significant time spent getting to know speakers before your event, gamification & interaction with the audience, and being a ‘Golden Thread’ that links the event from start to finish, you have a powerful Emcee presence.

4 pillars to make
Your event truly engaging
for attendees

Speaker Introductions
Ken takes the time to learn about each speaker personally. To an audience, the speakers should be introduced and shared in a manner fitting to the event. With energy, importance and expectation. Get the introductions right and an audience is engaged and ready. Q&A sessions are also designed in the same way.
Inter speaker content
A Golden Thread through the day, someone to take the core message of the last speaker, add something to it, and transition to the message of the next speaker. In between each speaker Ken Hughes showcases 3-5 minutes of bespoke content, adding context, provoking thought and adding further insight.
The keynote
Ken Hughes is most famous as a keynote speaker, and as such, as part of the Emcee Squared product, he delivers a full keynote tailored to the event. As he has already been doing micro-content between each speaker, attendees now have a chance to engage at a deeper level.
Event hosting & gamification

At networking breaks, at the event dinner or party Ken Hughes will be present, available for debate and discussion. To circulate and ensure everyone is doing well, to encourage inter-attendee networking.

He also likes to entertain and engage an audience from the stage, with interactive games, stories and humour.


“Ken did a stellar job as our emcee, exciting and engaging the VP audience throughout the 2-day event. His ability to humanise and personalise while seamlessly adjusting to all the timing and technical issues that come up with a live show was outstanding. He was a great partner and really helped us make our event an ‘experience’”
“As our host, Ken brings such energy and passion to our events, blending his own thought provoking content throughout. Engaging, funny, professional – simply outstanding!”

“Having had Ken present at a number of our congresses, we are confident that there are few other speakers that can engage and entertain an audience like he can, while simultaneously delivering to the conference theme”
