About the Author:

Pete Miller was born in Sydney Australia and attended The Kings School, Parramatta. After graduation from The Drama Studio Sydney, Pete acted in musicals and on TV soapies moving into the role of a humorous Master of Ceremonies at corporate conferences and eventually weddings. Pete published his first audio product 5 EASY STEPS TO A FANTASTIC VOICE in 1996 and followed up with the best-selling manual YOU CAN BE A WEDDING MC and the guide to business MC work UP FRONT IN CONTROL in 2000. Since then, there has been a steady stream of audio, video and written material on public speaking, the role of the emcee, and selling from the stage. His obsession is to ensure that every live event - be it a 3 day industry conference, educational business seminar, the opening of a new premises, special event awards night or prestigious wedding reception - be both organised and entertaining. Pete Miller has won the 'MC of the Year' award three times; firstly in 1998, then again in 2010 and 2011 (ABIA). Nearly every time Pete is the Master of Ceremonies at a wedding, he is recognized from his appearance as the lead presenter on Foxtels 'Wedding TV' show. After getting double-booked on the same day, Pete started running workshops to train speakers and presenters to fill-in when he was already unavailable. This has lead to an international professional multilingual wedding MC agency business. Beginning with WeddingMC.com.au, the business is expanding to include Canada, USA, England, New Zealand and South Africa. Pete is still retained by some of Australia's most successful speakers to coach them in selling from the stage.

Review:

Peter, Thank you for your assistance. I was MC at my friends wedding on the weekend and it all went off nicely. Although I have MC'd quite a few functions over the years, I hadn't done a wedding. Your book 'YOU CAN BE A WEDDING MC' was very helpful. Not only for me, but also for the bride and groom with establishing a suitable format for the evening. I managed to slot in a few of your one liners which were well received. The groomsmen were a little unorganized so we also used some of the telegrams from the book. The bride and groom were very pleased with the whole night. Thanks again for your help. Kind Regards, Bill Robertson --Bill Robertson

Just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for the terrific book YOU CAN BE A WEDDING MC;. As best man at my best mates wedding recently, I was also requested to perform the duties of the MC.  When I was asked to do this, I accepted without thought of what this job actually entailed.  As the date grew closer I began to become concerned due to the fact that I had absolutely no idea what really went on at wedding given I usually turn up and proceed to just PARTY!! I searched out your book and with its guidance enabled my friends to have a superb night.  I not only received compliments on my performance, but people actually told me they were taking notes - as they had similar things to do in the future. I am accustomed to public speaking and as such this was not an issue - however the small amount of nerves which are always around before any performance were confidently hidden due to the fact that I knew exactly what I was going to say and when. The words I chose to use from the book for introductions and welcomes were so perfect - succinct yet special. Thanks again I could not have done it without you.

I just wanted to 'Thank you' once again on the fabulous book 'YOU CAN BE A WEDDING MC'. It truly has made a difference to my confidence and my approach to my personal goals. I am a customer service officer for an office supply retailer. Last week I had my first gig as a Wedding MC and I am definitely looking at it as a healthy source of income. The book thoroughly covered all the questions and fears about being an MC; let alone public speaking. You truly are to be credited on a book which has changed my life.Thank you Peter and I wish you continued success for your re-print in the overseas market. Yours Sincerely, Steven Degollacion --email: Steven Degollacion steved_75@hotmail.com
