The Konknni Compering workshop which was conducted by Dalgado Konknni Akademi (DKA) recently evoked a good response with 73 participants, most of them were youth and college going students.

The workshop was held in two sessions. The duties and responsibilities of a compere was impressively spelled out by well known compere Dr. Ajay Vaidya. “The duty of a compere is to conduct a function in a disciplined manner. That’s why the person who
has accepted the responsibilty to be compere for any function he or she should report on the venue half an hour before the function and leave the venue half an hour after the function,” Dr. Vaidya said while guiding the participants in the workshop. He urged the participants to do the preparation and home work much in advance for the compering of any function.

In the second session, Xavier Fernandes, who has been booked as Master of Ceremonies for the next three years shared his various experiences in the field of compering. His experiences gave an insight to the participants that while compering the functions the compere should be ready for any eventuality.

The workshop was formally inaugurated at the hands of Dr. Ajay Vaidya and . Xavier Fernandes in presence of DKA’s president Premanand A. Lotlikar and secretary Jose Salvador Fernandes. Due to the demand of many more workshops in the field of compering, it was announced that DKA will hold its next workshop on compering in Margao very soon.

At the end of the workshop, certificates were presented to the participants at the hands of guests.
