Script for a corporate event (EagleBurgmann) (Annual


Function)
An organisation called EagleBurgmann required a script for their annual day, they wanted their employees to
host the show however, they wished to procure a script from an experienced Anchor and hence, I was called
upon for the job.
To be honest I rarely ever write scripts because I usually work on an on the spot basis or improvisation,
however, as these were not experienced Emcees, I wrote down not only a script but in between tips to help them
on stage.
Hope you find it helpful too...

Huge round of applause!
Jordar taliya!

Emcee 2:- Thank you so much gentlemen! I would now request you to kindly go back to your seats so
we can start the performances
Emcee 3:- Now that the lamp is Lit, its now time to have a small prayer in the lords name.
(If the prayer dance is on Ganpati)
In Indian tradition, out of all the gods and goddesses, we always pray to lord ganesha frst, and there
is a reason for that Does anybody know the reason? (Rhetorical)
The reason for this is in Lord Ganeshas name
Lord Ganesha/ Ganpati as we call him fondly is also called as the Vignaharta
The meaning of Vighnaharta is the one who destroyes obstacles
Hence, to make sure we do not encounter any kind of obstacles our way, we too today shall begin our
annual gathering by remembering Lord ganeshas name
And for this, we shall have the the Mumbai team, from the capital of Maharashtra and the place where
every second house has a ganpati Idol, please come on the stage
So Everybody, Please put your hands together, up in the air, and welcome the Mumbai team as loud
as we can!!!
Cmon everybody!!!
Important tip;- The emcee needs to have complete energy while welcoming anyone on the stage and
Its okay to be loud to bring about the energy in you, also all Emcees to remember to hold the mic
extremely close to your mouth, it can be as close as almost touching your lips. This will help the
Emcee to attain maximum clarity. It is also recommended that the emcees try the mic and check it
once before going on stage so that the speakers dont come as a surprise to them when they talk.
Mumbai Teams dance performance
Emcee:- Wow! What an outstanding performance! Audience! Sitiyan bhi allowed hai!
Aaj ki sham ki shuruvat hi itni jordar hui hai toh aaj ki sham kitni jordarr hogi???
Were going to have an extremely fun filled evening, and the first speaker of todays evening is also a
very fun loving person,
(Emcee to talk about Mr. Panthakis achievements and designation but dont take his name, use He)

Do you know who Im talking about?


(Wait for an answer from the audience)
Yes! It is Mr. Panthaki Please put your hands together and Welcome Mr. Panthaki on stage!
Mr. Panthaki, I would kindly request you to address the gathering today. Thankyou.
(Pass Over)
(Once Mr. Panthakis done, say what you liked the most about his speech or you will take so and so of
his advice etc, Its quite impromptu)
Address by foreign Deligates
Today on this beautiful evening of 17th June 2015, we also have our foreign delegates here, who have
traveled a real distance to attend our gathering today. We would like to thank you for the time that you

Thankyou so much _______,
Time for Game 1
Okay ladies and gentle, I wish to tell something to everybody here today I have been working with
Eagle burgmann since the past ___ and I believe that it is one of the best places to work!
Eagle Burgmann is not just a 12 letter word!
(looks at the logo and acts like counting and Says) Because Its a 13 letter word!
So today here I would like all our eagles in the audience to tell us what Eagle burgmann feels like to
them, but in 1 word!
And that word shall begin from the letter E, A, G, L, E.
Example:- E for Energetic, Ecstatic, Elemental etc
(Send one person in the audience with the mic)
If you have a word then just raise your hand and we will bring the mic to you
(Explain the same in hindi)
(For the game the emcee cannot have a script to stick to but must improvise on the spot and create
humor by his/her words. Don not forget to mention the reason why we are playing this game, i.e.
though our top management from Eagle Burgmann know what to tell everybody, they also wish to
hear from everybody what they think about their organization. So this is your chance to directly tell
your boss what you feel like and what the Eagle Burgmann Family means to you.
Usually in an organization there are different levels of communication and those really low down in the
pyramid cannot express themselves to those who are extremely high up in the pyramid. So do it now!)
(At the end of all the letters ask the employees to cheer hip hip hurray! And dont forget to thank
them for their kind words and valuable feed back)
Emcee :- This was your host _______, I would now like to call upon the next host of todays evening,
_________, round of applaud for him everyone!!!
Intro for Pune Dance:- (by emcee good with Marathi)
Today I feel glad that we have all gathered here today in the Marathi capital of Maharashtra, Pune!
The place where the brave shivaji maharaj lived most of his life!
The place where you have the worlds richest ganpati Dagduseth Shrimant Gnapati!
The place which is also know as the oxford of the east,

The place that adorns the MH 12,


So, I would like to ask you all in this typical Marathi syle!
Kasa kai Pune? (really loud and energytic)
Tumhi punri team chya performance sathi ready ahot?
(Lets hear the audience yell!!! You can also occasionally add lines such as, jevan nai khalay vattai?
Cmon jorani tumchi aavaz aiku dya!!!)
Okay then!!!
Aajcha hya Annual gathering sathi aamchya puneri teamne, tumhi sarvansathi, ek katakir chya missal

Cmon audience!!!
Jordaar Taliya!!! Joordarr Sitiya!!!
Singapore Performance:
Greeting everybody!!!
Or should I say Ni Hao (Nee How)
For everybody whos wondering what that is
I would like to share with you all that I am trying to learn Mandarin, one of the languages spoken in
Singapore, because we have so many in our Eagle Burgmann Family from Singapore.
So, As I said, Nee hao mean Hello
I wish to teach this to everybody who doesnt know how to greet someone from Singapore, so follow
me
Nee hao!
(Audience says Nee How)
Wonderful, now you know what to say to someone you meet from Singapore, and yes with that, dont
forget to bow.
(Emcee bows slightly)
Wonderful Then!
Ladies and gentlemen!
Today we have our Eagle Burgmann Family coming in all the way from Singapore, and as if that
wasnt enough, they have now decided that today here at the gathering in Pune, they are going to
showcase a little bit of their culture.
We would very much like to see what they have to present to us today on this stage and hence,
audience, too welcome our atithi, can we have a great round of applaud!!!
(Emcee exits the stage and the dance troupe enters)
Interval
Wow!!! What a performance by our Singaporean counterparts!!!
We just cannot thank them enough!!!
Their performance surely left everyone in the audience Spell- bound!
Thank you so much for taking the time and efforts to do this for us
Okay, Ladies and Gentlemen, as every TV seriel, every movie has an interval, or a break, it is now
time for or non-commercial Interval, which means, were not going to try to sell anything, so you now

have 10 mins to go visit the relieving sanctuary, as I like to call it, and maybe also go and grab some
refreshments. But, please do be back here in another 10 mins, because we have a lot more yet to
come and many exciting things yet to happen on this stage that you cannot afford to miss.
So your host __________ will see you back here in another 10 mins!!!
See you soon!!
After the interval Game:Welcome back everybody!
While some of you got the chance to grab the refreshments, maybe some of you didnt so here, we
have our game, in which you all can participate, only on one condition:Your name and surname both combined should have all the four letters of Eagle Burgmanns Eagle
i.e. E, A, G, L
Get 5-7 people up on the stage for the game..
The emcee asks them their names and hands each one of them a cookie and asks them not to eat
the cookie until she says to do so
Instructions:- all the players will keep the cookies on their forehead, and at the count of three they
have 1 minute to get the cookie from their forehead to their mouth without using their hands. All you
can do is tilt your head sideways, make facial expressions or whatever you feel like
If you drop the cookie, you are out..
The first one to eat the cookie wins
Another fun game:- give each one 5 balloons, they have to blow up the balloons and sit on them and
burst them, the first one to finish all 5 balloons is the winner!!!
In case of a tie you can arm wrestle or ask the two to do maximum push ups in one minute!
And the Emcee says Sayonara
Japanese ActFemale emcee suggested

Well, you have to know some because EB also has an extended family in Japan, and they are here
today to show us a little about their culture!
And I am totally excited to see what their act is all about!
Are you all???
If you are then let me hear you applaud for them, Cmon!
Lets welcome a bit of Japan here on this stage with us!!!
(Emcee exits Japanese act enters)
Raga theme Act:
Music is one thing that connects people all around the world, because music knows no language,
music knows no religion and it goes straight to the heart.
Most people when asked what is their hobby, would definitely have listening to music or playing an
instrument in their list, thats how deeply music touches us.
For me, I believe music is no different from breathing,
Because I cannot live without breathing ,
And I definitely cannot live without music.
This lovely evening, lets breath together, lets dance with joy together!

Uptill now weve had a dance performance, an act by our singapoorean and Japanese counterparts
that we deeply enjoyed, a stand up act with ___________, so now Its time for some music.
The history of Indian music is simply beautiful and weve had some really talented artists since
centuries who have been born here and given their beautiful gift of music to this world
Yes,,, Im talking about meera bai, with her Sitar, lost in Krishnas thoughts
Or imagining Tan sen in the royal palace,
Or Lata mangeshkar with voice like a nightangle,
Or A.R. Rehman with his Oscars.
Let us welcome the Raga Act, full of music, Full of Life!
Lets begin by listening to the encouraging music of some claps from the audience.. Can we?

Thankyou so muc everyone!!
Good night! Shub Ratri! Shabba Khair! Oyasumi Nasai! Wan An!
Further Tips:The emcees can check out various videos on youtube of other emcees hosting corporate shows
Even though this script exists and I have taken time to write this down, I would suggest that all the
willing emcees come forward to bring content into this or change content in this script according to
their style and preference. The true talent of an Emcee is how creative they can get with the content.
And once what to say has been decided, then the next thing to focus on should be how to say it.
Usually in events, there are last moment changes and the emcee should have to good presence of
mind to tackle last moment changes accordingly. Even if last moment changes are not there, every
time the response the audience provides is different and the next sentence of the emcee depends on
how the audience responds to the previous one.
To sum it up in one sentence:Be yourself , be energetic, and just focus on what you can say best Impromptu.
Even if you dont remember that poetic line and you know whats coming next, Introduce and leave!
Its always better to not say much than to say something wrong on stage.
And As far as possible try not to look at the script and read it out, try to work without it, by which I do
not mean that you learn the thing by heart, but just know what to say and say it in your own words.
