His immaculate sense of comic timing and his quick-witted comebacks delivered to the audience is essentially what sets him apart from other emcees. Go ahead and ask anyone who has seen him emcee and they will be full of praise of the talent he possesses. 

Another unique skill that James has developed through years of experience emceeing in Singapore and has at his disposal – is the ability to make every guest feel part of the session.

His events are usually fast-paced, intense, built to a climax and then to a wrap-up, leaving no room for dullness.

Over the years, James has become synonymous with being the Singapore emcee who is engaging, entertaining and empathetic. His professionalism and growing reputation have graced him with the opportunities to be flown overseas, just to host the event or wedding ceremony.

Formal Events Emceeing in Singapore

With minimal effort, James can put on a formal facade, this versatility enabling him to emcee events of national importance in Singapore like that of the Shangri-La dialogue.
