Technology Host & MC Amy McWhirter
Creating engaging virtual events is the talk of the meeting and conference planning industry. Dare we say the word on everyone's mind lately - "pivot"? Well, it is the current reality and an apt term for today's environment. While we may miss the in-person energy and connection of live events, the good news is that audience engagement is still possible in a live broadcast and virtual event! And, you could argue, that energizing presence may be more important than ever to tie themes together, engage audiences to interact with each other, and maintain focus with distractions lurking near attendees' screens.

“You were ABSOLUTELY mind blowing!!! You were just such a delight to watch! Thank you so much in helping us pull off such a huge success!”
"Amy brought high energy, flow, polish and professionalism to my client’s (Institute of Food Technologists-IFT) annual event in-person general sessions, which were live-streamed to a global virtual audience. Amy was fantastic, with high energy and connection that tied everything together seamlessly for the science-minded audience. She offered personal stories to connect with the minds and hearts of audiences. She was easy to work with, and the production team really appreciated her on-camera and stage experience, and her ability to go with the flow, making quick changes on the fly, improvising, and keeping everything moving forward with grace and passion."
"The feedback has been glowing! Watching the ‘Live from Vegas’ segments that you recorded with the team, I was blown away by how well they turned out- exactly how I envisaged. You came across so warm, knowledgeable, comfortable and crisp that it seemed as though you’d been our virtual event host for years. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and I know our audience responded extremely well to you as our virtual host. Veeam will definitely want to see Amy McWhirter grace the stage or screen again in the future."
“AWESOME!!! AMY!!! SUPERB. MY GOD. Amy Killed it. You handled it so well, all the transitions. WE ARE AN A-TEAM. EVERYONE IN ACTION :-)”
“Virtual events can have many moving parts with both ‘TV-produced quality’ and ‘reality TV-like’ components. I highly encourage meeting and event planners to consider hiring a professional event host that can tie together your messaging throughout your event while managing attendee expectations. When it came time to “open doors” to our #VirtualPivot event, Amy did what she does best – engaging with speakers and attendees with her energetic personality and just making us look good. She truly was the glue that kept the event running smoothly from start to finish. As one attendee mentioned in our post-event surveys, “I loved Amy's passion and enthusiasm.” Choosing Amy was the best decision we made for #VirtualPivot and I highly recommend that you hire her for your on-site or virtual event too.”
“YOU ARE A PRO! Thank you so much for rolling with the punches and adding a sense of stability, enthusiasm, credibility, and light to the broadcast. Looking forward to the next time we get to work together.”
“I just wanted to say a formal thank you for being such an amazing Host/Professional/Moderator/General Giver of Calm at the IFS World Conference. The client is delighted. The show was complex and the demands from all directions a tricky balancing act. Thank you for your humor and ability to 'read the room'. I am not sure you can 'rock' a software conference but we came very close!”
“Just wanted to say a big thank you again for last night. You were key to the event’s success. Brilliant MC, Charismatic, dynamic with our guests…just what we needed!”
“I am so honored and proud to recommend Amy as one of the very best hosts and emcees in the World. Amy by far, is the best at what she does. I’ve witnessed her work first hand for our clients and she knows how to get into your soul.”
