Topics for Scott Bloom
- Virtual Meetings
We all know the benefits of virtual meetings. They’re cost-effective. They offer worldwide connectivity. They’re quick to set up, efficient, productive, and environmentally friendly. But did we know that this powerful tool can be made exponentially more robust? They can. And should. Especially in today’s environment when travel is limited and physical connection between people is discouraged.
But buyer take note. A virtual meeting comprised of only talking heads and PowerPoints can be mind-numbing. On the other hand, a virtual meeting with a professional host can be energizing, compelling and can keep an audience riveted to the screen and open to the content. It can boost interest and engagement and provide meeting continuity and consistency. What’s more, it can set the tone for a meeting and cultivate an environment where viewers stay transfixed on the message and meeting purpose.
Adding a funny professional host can provide interstitial moments of comic relief that can refresh an audience after statistical-laden presentations. And most importantly, it will make the meeting memorable. And that’s where Scott Bloom comes in. With years of professional in-person and television hosting experience, Scott is prepared to transfer his talent to your digital events. In a virtual role, Scott can present in multiple formats.
- Meeting openers
- Executive intros
- Live Q&A sessions
- Talk show formats
- And more
- Internal webcasts
- Live streaming
- Pre-recorded videos
- Training broadcasts
- You name it
- Scott can also translate his on-stage work to video using any technique.
You don’t need to sacrifice the content of an in-person experience to achieve a successful virtual meeting and to that end, Bloom can offer the best solution to keep audiences connected and engaged. Wherever they are. At work or at home.
- Conference MC
A professional emcee who has hosted hundreds of corporate events, Scott can custom tailor his unique brand of showmanship to meet your needs.
Whether opening the general session - introducing executives - staging audience participation segments - moderating leadership discussions – or delivering segues that underscore the objectives of the session, Scott delivers meetings with poise, power and panache.
As emcee, Scott’s the master performer and the common denominator who can cultivate an engaging environment in which everyone is transfixed on the message and meeting purpose. He’s the magical glue that holds a meeting together giving it continuity and consistency. Pair that with his sharp sense of humor and ability to improv and he can take moments of important material and make them seriously funny and always memorable.
With over two decades of television and corporate hosting experience Scott’s got the credentials, the charisma and the comedy that make meeting messages resonate with audiences.
- The One-on-One Interview
What do John Travolta, Andre Agassi and Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak have in common? All three of these celebrity keynotes sat down with Scott at a live event to share their personal accomplishments, career highlights and life strategies. Clients choose Scott because he is brilliant at drawing these types of high profile-speakers out while drawing your audience in. He’s got a knack for lightly extracting pertinent moments and messaging from both A-list celebrities and C-level executives. So the next time you’re looking for the perfect moderator to interview a celebrity keynote or key member of your executive team, choose Scott Bloom.
- Panel Discussion
And when discussions get serious, Scott can moderate important panels of leaders and move them easily from topic to topic. Think news moderators and presidential debates. Then think Scott Bloom. He’s got the right stuff to get a panel going and going in the right direction. As moderator, he’s the diplomat and agent for a lively and interesting dialogue amongst executives.
- Talk Show Format
Scott can also craft a talk show format into an effective and relatable platform for delivering executive messages. Here’s how it goes. Rather than have one podium speaker after another, it’s one seated guest after another. Scott interviews. Executives respond. Scott keeps it light. Executives keep it real. It’s an absolutely brilliant and delightful platform for delivering remarkable messages that play extremely well with the audience.
- Digital Content
In addition, Scott can bring his television hosting experience to any of your live digital events, such as internal webcasts, live streaming, YouTube-style videos and onsite training broadcasts. As guest host, he can also serve as the "voice of the audience," asking questions and seeking clarification of questions that are on your employees’ minds. Scott knows how to balance the right amount of humor and facilitation to keep the audience engaged, enlightened and entertained.

I want you to know that I've been to many POAs with many companies over many years, and your talent, humor and preparation made our past meeting the best. Thank you. You should know that the meeting evaluation scores rated you with exceptionally high scores, and ours is a pretty tough "room" to work. Congratulations!
Director of Oncology Marketing
Scott's success with our group can be attributed to several factors. First, he is the consummate professional. He has experience in playing the role of a professional MC and it shows. Second, he solicited input from our group prior to the meeting to ensure a truly custom show. It was uncanny how Scott could process and comprehend all of the information that we provided to him. The work he put into learning about our group and the market we support resonated extremely well with our audience. Next, Scott sought out each of the individuals that he was responsible for introducing. He took time to learn about each person's background and their role in our organization to make their introductions not only accurate but sincere. Finally, Scott's material was very funny. His humor was politically correct and appropriate for our corporate audience without being predictable. Scott significantly exceeded my expectations and helped to make our general session one of the most popular elements of this year's meeting.
You rocked last night. I almost fell out of my seat with a couple of guys we were all laughing so hard. Thank you for doing such a great job. You are part of the NSC family. We will talk about next year once we are back.

Our success last week was due in large part to your efforts in the emcee role. Speaking on behalf of the planning team and the attendees, you made a world of difference to us. We intended to add some fun in the week, and you made that happen on a daily basis. Your material was great, and your ability to learn so much about our company, our agents and our financial specialists in a brief period of time was extraordinary. Thank you again for your conscientious preparation and your professionalism.

I just wanted to thank you again for a job well done at the William Raveis Real Estate 40th Anniversary Event. You were exactly what was needed for clients who appreciated an emcee of your caliber stitching the show together seamlessly for the presenters - and engaging an audience of 1600 attendees.
Scott, you were a major hit at our national sales conference - you were awesome! Pat and Marsh kept saying how great you are - you blew us away. Ok, here is the best compliment I can give you. Our hard-nosed finance guy came into my office this morning - you know, the type of guy who always questions everything we do in Sales - he says, "Scott Bloom was so great - why doesn't AT&T get him for other big meetings?" So you got to everyone, including the Finance Guy! Thank you. People are still buzzing about you.

Fantastic! Funny! Quick! Smart! Creative! Witty! Professional! Those were the adjectives used by our customers to describe your performance. Thank you for the outstanding job you did as our master of ceremonies.
Scott Bloom was beyond amazing! During the event, he was personable and professional on and off stage. He had the crowd in stitches and was also quick on his feet with hilarious adlibs. I keep getting great feedback and in fact, I just received a letter in the mail today from our organization's president asking me to hire him back next year. I can't wait.
