Wayne did a stellar job in bringing his high energy hosting style to HSBC Life’s 2021 mid-year celebratory event where our bank’s staff gathered virtually to recognize some of our key achievements and milestones.
His smooth and punchy delivery was executed remotely , and is something that really makes him stand out as an emcee. He is an asset for any team bonding and corporate engagement events. Kudos Wayne!
Leah Ng, Chief Distribution Officer, HSBC
We’ve had Wayne for several of Canon’s important and exclusive product launch events over the years, where he was not only responsible for presenting our latest digital offerings to our key stakeholders, but also in charge of entertaining them with games and activities in appreciation of their continued support and partnership.
Wayne never fails to help bring the right amount of energy and engagement to each show that he’s hosted with us, be it a corporate business conference or a new product launch.
If you’re looking for an emcee with great versatility, who can deliver both fun and formal segments at the same event, then Wayne is your man!
Kwan Ho, Senior Marketing Manager, Canon
Wayne is one of our top choices for hosting duties when it comes to many of the major global conferences and summits that we organise for DMG’s distinguished clientele in the energy sector, including the Gas Asia Summit and the Asean Energy Business Forum.
One of the challenges of such mega conventions is delivering the somewhat serious subject matter in a way that captures an audience’s attention in an elegant and engaging manner.
Wayne is one of the rare few who is able to be both dignified and dynamic, making sure that he doesn’t miss a beat when it comes to sudden changes or pronouncing slightly trickier international names, yet lending prestige in the way he delivers the content.
We are thankful to Wayne for his dedication to always making a difference at our events!
Yuyuan Chen, Head of Energy Transition - Asia, DMG Events
When we were planning the first ever Christmas countdown show for Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay, we knew we needed a host that fully embodies the Yuletide spirit and was capable of capturing the attention of a crowd in a public setting. Wayne was the first name that came to mind.
Christmas Wonderland is Singapore’s biggest annual Yuletide fair which has attracted approximately half a million visitors annually on average since its debut in 2014, so it was crucial to select the right emcee who could bring the holiday mood and festive cheer to a massive fairground.
Wayne was able to personify what we envisioned, bringing a commanding presence to our show and even took the initiative to put on his own Christmas themed outfit, fitting right in with Santa, his elves, and other magical Christmas characters at our event. We look forward to working with him again for more future large-scale productions
Fiona Smith, Project Director, Blue Sky Events
Wayne is one of the top emcees that I have used for many of my events. His high level of versatility, professionalism and adaptability is the reason why we have selected him to host a variety of events for our diverse clientele. We have engaged him to anchor family days, carnivals, corporate events, symposiums etc and even when we had to pivot to virtual events due to COVID-19 in 2020, he still remains one of the most highly sought after presenters in the virtual sphere. I would definitely recommend him for any show, whether it’s hybrid, digital or a physical live event – he always delivers!
Damien Yoo, Business Development Manager, Ape Works Pte Ltd
Lively, confident and boisterous.
These were the defining characteristics of Wayne’s hosting performance when he was engaged to emcee Epson’s annual Lunar New Year prosperity dinner in 2020, which was organized to recognize and appreciate our top business partners and distributors.
It was especially impressive to watch Wayne transit from the more formal awards segments to become a full-on entertainer conversing in English, Mandarin and dialect to rile up the crowd with fun games and activities, even physically running from one end of the ballroom to another to ensure no one was left out as he built the desired festive atmosphere to usher in the new Year of the Rat.
Wayne’s a real natural on stage, very hardworking, and we look forward to having him again for similar events in future
Lionel Gan, Manager, Epson
As a host and emcee, Wayne is a true professional – respectful of clients, the events team, takes initiative to work well with my team and he is always well-prepared.
It is a real pleasure working with Wayne. He hosts meaningfully, thoughtfully, and makes sure the event is well enjoyed and well presented, the way the brand should be. I have worked with several emcees in the past, and I am glad to say I never have to worry about Wayne getting names and designations mixed up (very impt and has appallingly happened for my events) and never have to worry about him rushing through the programme just so he can get paid (yes, I had an emcee once who rattled off award recipient names without a care to who was on stage!).
I hope that you enjoy working with Wayne as much as my team and I do.
Angela Sim, Managing Director, ENCE Marketing Group
As an events company, the reason why I often recommend Wayne to my clients is his impressive range as an emcee. From hosting FMCG roadshows to attract heartlanders to spend on household products at our local supermarkets, to helming exclusive overseas property investment seminars aimed at piquing the interest of foreign investors in a posh 5-star hotel, there is almost no situation where we’ve deployed him that he cannot handle. Look no further, Wayne is a reliable, flexible and adaptable master-of-ceremonies you desire for your show!
Kenneth Tong, Founder & Owner, OGL Asia Pte Ltd
I cannot recommend Wayne enough! When I was with German MNC Thyssenkrupp, I was looking out for an emcee that was able to host our CNY and anniversary event. We had customers coming from all over Southeast Asia and being in the manufacturing industry, it was a tough crowd to navigate and manage. Wayne exemplified flexibility and was able to liven up the crowd together numerous times. He was also able to switch between English, Mandarin and the local dialects well. He is so full of energy and that energy was infectious that night. We were impressed with his attitude and his work ethics. I’m more than happy to work with him again and I’m sure that anyone who picks him to host their event will not be disappointed.
Kenneth Teng, Account Manager, Thyssenkrupp
Wayne is an engaging, sincere and personable host, whether online or offline. Having worked with him on two occasions for RedONE’s Battle of the Reds events, I’ve seen how he’s able to lighten the mood and make even VIPs like English Premier League as well as Singapore national soccer legends comfortable on camera. I highly recommend Wayne for any event or media platform where you need to keep the guests or viewers engaged. Be it a formal or fun affair, he is able to adapt to the situation with his quick thinking and wittiness.
Tanya Lai , CEO Bluesheep Productions
We engaged Wayne to host our global tech client’s dinner and dance in 2018 and were really impressed by his ability to go the extra mile for his clients. The D&D showcased a swanky Jetset Superstar theme and Wayne certainly did not disappoint when he arrived in the ballroom dressed as a Bruno Mars doppelgänger, even leading the client’s senior leadership team in a Uptown Funk opening dance number which was a great lively opening to the event! The energy really picked up when he invited guests on stage to take part in the superstar battle segment. We highly recommend Wayne for your next company DND where a host who understands both local and global popular culture is required.
Aden Liu, Creative Director, Maverique Events
It was a real pleasure to have Wayne as our Emcee at our 50th anniversary D&D! It was one of the highlights of the year to Hilti Far East as we have established a robust business in Singapore for 50 years already thanks to the highly engaged employees and customers. There were guests from different countries, different levels and different background joining us for a big celebration. In the beginning, we were also wondering how could we ensure it was fun, memorable yet serious and professional. But Wayne led the flow really well, and engaged all the audience for a wonderful evening with his sense of humour and charisma. Very well done Wayne! We will definitely consider you as our partner again in the upcoming events.
Sharon Ng, Head Of Human Resources, Hilti Singapore
I first met Wayne when he was hosting Gamestart Asia in 2014, and felt he would be a good fit to facilitate a media event I was in charge of during my time at Singtel. Wayne’s professionalism, TV background and deep baritone voice make him perfect for such corporate announcements, and he is well-versed in the protocol and etiquette when it comes to conducting himself in the presence of international media and guests. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs a eloquent and versatile host for such occasions
Tricia Lee, Senior Corporate Communications Manager Singtel
Wayne hosted our two-day CCAS Regional Contact Centre Symposium & APPCAL EXPO at Resorts World Sentosa, engaging and entertaining some 170 international delegates who had flown in from around the world to learn and exchange views about best practices from global contact centre industry experts.
Wayne not only made a formal event fun with creative icebreakers, he was also able to react and adjust quickly to various changes on the ground. His clear TV news voice and good diction was especially important in lending weight to the introductions of our distinguished speakers and panellists and in making important announcements on stage to ensure a smooth experience for our delegates. He is an ideal emcee to have for any event and showed his strength in managing a high level conference with the right mix of fun and formality at our annual symposium.
Kenneth Chong, Chairman, Contact Centre Association of Singapore
We engaged Wayne in 2016 for the Loyang Bus Depot Carnival, a public event attended by around 3000 people, including government officials and residents of all ages in local community.
Wayne’s hosting skill was a great fit for our event. He was lively throughout the day, setting the right atmosphere for a carnival and was equally proficient during the opening ceremony addressing our distinguished guests. He is also effectively bilingual, hosting in both English and Mandarin.
He was especially engaging during the lucky draw and quiz segments, where he managed to build up excitement and anticipation in the audience. As a result. visitors were very keen and enthusiastic in participating in the quiz.
With the Loyang Bus Depot Carnival being a success, I believe that Wayne Chan would be a great choice for your event.
Michelle Yin, Marketing Communications Manager, Go Ahead Singapore
We engaged Emcee Wayne Chan to host our Art of Singapore Exhibition launch at Orchard Gateway on 10 Dec 2015, which came with the unveiling of a Coffee Table Book filled with paintings by Mr Ang Hao Sai, Singapore’s last movie poster painter. A high brow affair graced by Singapore’s former president, Mr S.R. Nathan, our event required a host with sophistication, which Wayne demonstrated with ease. Our guests were especially impressed with Wayne’s ability to use his voice to bring to life the stories behind the cinematic artwork depicting scenes of Singapore’s history. This storytelling ability was crucial to our event’s success, and Wayne’s experience as a former Channel NewsAsia TV reporter certainly came to the fore when he took the stage as our host. We would certainly recommend Wayne for such events in future.
Melvin Er, Managing Director, Lovorth Events & Media
We were very happy to have Wayne come on board as our livestream host for our online adoption drive with Hope for Animals. Wayne took on the challenge of helming our pilot episode, setting a really good tone and making it a very entertaining episode for the viewers. We especially appreciated how he captured the audiences with his exciting personality while engaging with both the pets and his partnering emcee. His great singing also adds to the ability to provide a lively episode which was enjoyable for both our viewers and the team filming it! What’s more, he is an extremely enthusiastic, proactive and easy-to-work-with professional. I definitely recommend Wayne to as the host for your next live stream or virtual programme as he is adaptable, entertaining and able to convey the right messages for the show!

Wayne was the perfect Master of Ceremony for the Design Excellence Awards event that I was in charge of directing in 2015. As with all awards ceremonies, the names of the Sponsors, VIPs and the Winners needed perfect pronunciations; the proceedings of the event were also crucial. Yet Wayne did all of that with ease.
There were also multiple last minute changes behind the scenes. What impressed me was Wayne’s flexible response and professionalism in ensuring the event went smoothly.
Wayne is high up my option-list for similar events!
Veronica Yong, Deputy Director, Communications and Marketing at Our Tampines Hub
Wayne hosted the finals of our inaugural talent competition, “Viral Voice” at Our Tampines Hub. It was LIVE and we engaged Wayne to emcee the evening’s programme. In spite of the technical challenges that a live broadcast sometimes presents, Wayne remained calm and not only entertained our audience but was also able to put all our finalists at ease whilst they were onstage before performing for public votes.
With professional judges from the entertainment industry and a live audience of more than half a thousand people, we wanted to give the competition a ‘Singapore Idol’ feel. Interacting with the audience, contestants and judges at the same time, Wayne achieved our intended objective with his witty remarks, engaging voice and commanding stage presence. We would definitely recommend Wayne for your next show, especially if it’s a local version of Ryan Seacrest you’re looking for!
