Jat launched his Emcee career more than a decade ago with the hosting of several Road shows for the then expanding Standard Chartered Bank. During this bout, Jat was talent spotted by a leading events company that delivered him his first corporate Dinner & Dance and to date he has scored over 500 such events for repeat and new clients! His experience now encompasses almost every event genre thinkable;
Sporting Events, Family Days, Product Launches, Cultural Shows, Birthdays & Weddings, Seminars, Conferences, Awards, Team building, Concerts, Tours.
"Formal-ness"- Jat has the ability to conduct himself effectively at formal events such as ministerial inaugurations and community awards ceremonies. His articulate English and mannerisms give him the edge needed to execute formalities on and off stage. Jat often goes the extra mile to assist event companies and organizing committees with scripting of formal ceremonies where protocol management has utmost priority.
"Hair-down"- Often cited as an irony because Jat grooms himself with a rather short hair-cut (and this facilitates wigs and head gear for themed events!), it is a highly entertaining experience to watch Jat interact with audiences with witty exchanges, humorous games and comical dissertations. Otherwise appearing as a calm and composed personality, audiences and guests find it a great pleasure to watch Jat break into classic mimicries backed by versatile facial and physical expression! To put it simply, Jat promises to not just have your hair down but to fall off your seats with laughter and stimulation!
"Multi-Lingual"- English aside, Jat is eloquent in formal Malay and its slangs like Bahasa Indonesia and Pasar Melayu (market Malay). Being ethnically North Indian, Jat speaks the language of Bollywood, Hindi, superbly well. His language prowess extends to what he terms "sprinklers"; Jat executes his opening acts, games and lucky draws with sprinkles of Mandarin, Hokkien and Tamil with side feelers when called for in Japanese, Korean, Thai and Tagalog. Look out also for his versatility in different styles of English: Indian Yinglish, Chinese Inkelish, Malay Inggeriss and American, British & Aussie accents!
"Brainy"- Perhaps one of the most important qualities that Emcees must possess, wit and the ability to think on your feet are essential to create resounding successes out of every event, formal or informal. Jat has a clever head on his shoulders fueled by the ability to remain calm when crisis strikes. Both event companies and clients have commended Jat for his quick ability to manage unplanned circumstances on and off stage. In lay terms, Jat "covers up" well during events for performing acts, guests, clients and even external parties like caterers, logistics, etc.
Jat has a passion for acting and script-writing and has undertaken such roles for T.V and private programs before. In 2009, Jat also spent a lot of time developing curriculum on events management and Emcee workshops. Education has always motivated him and thus he bears a strong belief in knowledge and the imparting of skills. Interestingly in the past 5 years, the M.I.CE industry in Singapore and the region has boomed beyond scale entailing a great demand for service-trained workforce. Jat now balances his events career with his Trainer ambition, conducting classes and workshops for candidates of all ages and walks of life in the field of Events Management and Emceeing!
