Richard Pinner is a very experienced host and compere.
With a great ability to think on his feet and be relaxed and comfortable in front of any audience, he can unite 50 people at a sales conference or a few thousand people at a music festival.
More commonly, hosting an event is like being the glue that holds it together: introducing speakers; conducting the raffle or auction; keeping guests apprised of the event schedule; all those things that just need someone to be in control.
