What’s the secret...
...of putting on an event so that your guests go home enthusing about it for weeks afterwards?
Annette Yashpon knows it’s about putting herself in her client’s shoes and, as the Master of Ceremonies, pianist or singer, conveying their desired message with expertise and integrity. From the outset – at the concept development stage – her enthusiastic and flexible approach ensures an enjoyable and uncomplicated collaboration. And at the event itself, as international audiences repeatedly confirm, her graceful stage presence, heartfelt charisma and quick-witted humour combine to guarantee a successful event, earning you, as the organizer, praise from your enthralled guests.
MC / TV-Presenter
Covering locations such as New York, Copenhagen, Dubai and Berlin, Annette is booked worldwide for the most diverse of occasions – opulent galas in front of thousands, trade fairs, panel discussions, workshops, as well as exclusive events for selected groups of CEOs.
Her skills range from presenting complex technical subjects to events devoted purely to entertainment. She also has TV experience both as a presenter and as an interviewer.
With a combined honours degree in French and German, Annette dazzles her audiences in her mother tongue of English, as well as in German and French, where her subtle British accent lends a charming international flair.
Pianist / Singer
Having started “tinkling the ivories” when she was 4, Annette achieved a distinction in her Grade 8 piano exam at the age of 17. As a pianist and also a singer, she has built up an extensive repertoire and tailors her music to suit the occasion, moving effortlessly between golden oldies, film themes, classical music, blues, ragtime and boogie as well as her own compositions. Playing without recourse to notes, she captivates audiences with her infectious enthusiasm.
Unique show concept
Annette’s “unique show concept” is ideal for certain events and has proven to be a hit with audiences worldwide.
She starts by playing the piano, but then suddenly gets up and – to the astonishment of the guests, who until now had taken her to be “just” the pianist – transforms effortlessly into the MC, accompanying them through the event in any of her three languages! There are a number of ways in which this surprise element may be incorporated into your event.
A natural extension to Annette’s vocal skills on stage is her work as a voice artist for promotional and technical films, documentaries, advertisements, audio books and cartoons. She can sound dynamic or gentle; sensual or cool; classy, sincere or funny, and can imitate ages from 8 to 80 years. Her voice-over work also includes dubbing.
