Ever wonder how we make the sausage at DJ Expo? No? Well, we’re gonna tell you anyway.

Every seminar is meticulously designed, tweaked, and re-tweaked before it’s a Go. Here’s an example of the seminar design for “All-Star Wedding MCs’ Secrets Revealed,” moderated by DJ Steve Moody and scheduled for Monday, 3:00-5:00.

Opening Remarks From Steve Moody

“I am not going to spend much time in the opening segment as we have so much information to cover. I will welcome everyone and quickly introduce each panel member.

“I also intend to explain the importance of the pre-planning with our clients in order to make our presentations fit their vision etc….and how that everything we are going to speak about in the seminar is a reflection of the time spent in pre-planning with the clients.”

Section 1
In the first section we’re going to share some secrets that go on behind the scene in the Green Room as we give our prep and pep talks with “Bridal Party Before their Grand Entrance.” Explain how the use of this time alone with the bridal party is so important to the success of the reception. What do we say to them to help make them an extension of our entertainment team. Sked: Jason Jani followed by Steve Moody.

Section 2
This section will revolve around our time spent before we actually break into full party mode at a reception.

Our opening remarks at an event set the tone for the entire evening. First impressions are so important.
