A new role in Events – Celebrity Assistance at Womanation Magazine Launch at Chennai
After I became an event emcee I have been doing several other roles like Event Manager, Event Coordinator, Model Coordinator, etc. However the role I got today was more interesting and I enjoyed doing it. Yes I got the opportunity to perform the role of Celebrity Assistance at Womanation Magazine Launch at Hotel Taj Vivanta, Chennai.
What was that I exactly did today being a Celebrity Assistant?
I’m Thamizharasan Karunakaran, an Event Emcee based at Chennai and have been hosting Family Events to Corporate Events in Chennai and other Parts of Tamilnadu. I would like to share my experience of being a celebrity assistant for a Magazine launch.
Firstly I would like to thank Mr Samuel Eddy to have given me this wonderful opportunity. My co-host Nandhini and I have been meeting Sam regularly for the last few months and we have been discussing a few projects. We have been learning a lot from Sam and hence we enjoyed his company. Launching Womanation Magazine has been Sam’s one of the current projects and Nandhini and I decided to be with Sam at the launch.
So we decided to take care of the registration process, help the guests (celebrities) to get seated in their respective places, help them on their questions, ensuring that the event goes in a flow without missing out any vital things, etc. Usually someone who has become emcee wouldn’t prefer this role. However Nandhini and I decided that we would do this role with at most happiness and by giving our heart and soul.
We both went to the venue a couple of hours before the event and along with Sam we made sure everything was in place. As the guests started walking in we helped them finding their places and kept them comfortable throughout the event. We explained them the agenda so that it was easy for them to network with others efficiently.
We got wonderful opportunity to meet a lot of successful people in their respective fields, got time to interact with them and learn a lot from them. They were so sweet and down to earth that without any ego they interacted with us with smiling faces and posed for pictures too with us.
What is Womanation Magazine?
Womanation is a magazine that features more than 50 Women Entrepreneurs and women of worth in Chennai. It’s like a Coffee Table book which would be displayed in major places like Star Hotels, Airport, Book shops, lounges, etc. Hence it would be a great branding for the women featured in this magazine.

I would like to thank Samuel Eddy to have given this wonderful opportunity for me and Nandhini to take the role of celebrity Assistance. All other technical teams (DJ and Photographers) were very supportive and interactive. Thank you so much Lights on events (DJ) and Kasar Pix (Photography) for your great support. I would like to thank each and every heart and soul behind this event.
