Becky McCray is a natural at hosting events.

Whether it’s setting the tone for multiple speakers, managing lightning presentation rounds, keeping discussion flowing or wrangling a rowdy audience, I love working live sessions.

Audience members describe me as an entertaining, energizing, supportive host who can put the whole event into perspective.

“Becky is a very polished yet completely natural speaker, and that resonates with her audience. She was a star of our event, and a huge reason why it was so successful.”

I’ve hosted, co-hosted or emceed over 25 live events from an intimate rooftop gathering, to a working retreat, to an international audience at a small-town event I co-created in Hutchinson, Kansas. It all builds on my training in facilitation and my experience going back years.

Roundtables and open conversations are a specialty. Ask me anything!
