The Star Awards – Cheerfulness Makes a Difference

February 9, 2007 at 8:58 pm Leave a comment

Melissa Wilson anchors at Fox 26 in Houston, Texas, and I can’t say that I had really known much about her until I went to the Star Awards put on by the Houston West Chamber of Commerce.

What I would like to tell you about Melissa is that she makes an award show really “click”.

I mean, have you ever been to an awards show where the announcer read off the list of companies and winners for hours while you writhed in your chair? I am not saying that she made it fun, but Melissa’s positive energy has a huge impact on the “awakability” of the show. She was so “peppy”. I was impressed.

So, if you are an awards show planner, I would put Melissa Wilson on the list of “must haves” in order to be successful.

In contrast, the keynote speaker was Judge Robert Eckels, who did a good job at his speech, but was neither exciting nor educaitonal. I prefer my speakers to have a little more data and substance. The good Judge’s speech was more a pat on the back, and less motivating or educating. I, however, am sure that he can be both educational and motivational.

Also, congratulations to the Star Award companies that help sustain and grow business in West Houston.
