Hi, I’m Melvin and I’ve been a professional Emcee since 2006, working all over Asia. I host Corporate & Brand events, and specialise in bringing excitement to your audience in a professional way.

My deep, ‘radio-like’ voice coupled with a proven ability to engage and excite audiences, have made me a firm favourite for some of the world’s most iconic brands, including McDonalds, Nestle and Canon.

In short I know exactly how to present your audience with precisely the right formula to make any event an exciting and memorable success. But don’t take my word for it; have a look at me in action below and read what some of my delighted clients have to say about my work.

Melvin has done a great job in hosting our 9th year Anniversary Party. We had a huge crowd this year and he was able to engage them as well as keep them entertained the whole night… Full of energy and enthusiasm.

– Audrey Chee, General Manager, Focus Media Singapore
We truly appreciate your help in making our NEON party a SUCCESS! Thanks for all your effort, ideas and suggestions, and Thanks for the GOOD job done!

- April Lee, HBO Asia
Melvin is professional, witty and funny. He was able to bring up the atmosphere and work the audience. We had a ball and really enjoyed ourselves.
