Being a Quiz Master can be great fun and if you’re good enough, it can be pretty lucrative! Also, you get to socialise as you entertain people, you are your own boss and you can do it in addition to your ‘real’ job. Pub quizzes are as popular as ever and their popularity continues to grow. Millions of people attend quiz nights every week, so there’s a big demand for great Quiz Masters.
Most people can host a one-off quiz but to be a great Quiz Master you need:
to be clearly spoken
a great imagination
to be comfortable presenting in front of a crowd of people
a good sense of humour
basic computer skills
a natural interest in quizzing
basic knowledge of audio visual equipment
