As an emcee, Rene’s expertise and forte is in formal events that need a touch of class and sophistication. This includes events that require governmental salutation protocols, multiple weddings and gala dinners, like the Citibank Awards Night, NAMLIFA Akard Awards Presentation Night, and the Jotun Annual Dinner. However he has also been the annual emcee for the Miss Sabah Tourism Pageant, the PCA Charity Dinner & Concert, Miri Country Music Festival and Kuching Waterfront Jazz Festival.



Rene has had to conduct multiple events with the following guests of honour who require correct pronunciation of their names and titles. Guests of honour include:

Yang Amat Mulia Tengku Amalin A’ishah Putri binti Sultan Ismail Petra Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Muda ‘Abdul Qawi ibni Duli Yang Teramat Mulia Paduka Seri Pengiran Perdana Wazir Sahibul Himmah Wal-Waqar Pengiran Muda Mohamed Bolkiah

“Yang Amat Berhormat Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Mohd. Shafie bin Haji Apdal and his wife, Yang Amat Berbahagia Datin Seri Panglima Hajah. Shuryani Binti Datuk Haji Shuaib.”

“Yang Amat Berhormat Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Haji Aman and his wife, Yang Amat Berbahagia Datin Seri Panglima Hajah Faridah Haji Tussin”

The list of government Ministers and Deputy Ministers that Rene has had to announce is too long to list.


"My husband and I were very grateful that we could engage Mr. Rene Barrow as our emcee during our 3-day wedding event. He is a very talented and well-trained emcee with excellent command and intonation of English. He is very professional in handling all the schedules and very on time. As an emcee he was able to attract the attention and entertained my guests from all around the world without making them feel bored during the events. Many compliments were given to him from my guests. We didn't need to worry about the programmes at all as he had planned ahead with us earlier and everything was according to plan. He is a very recommended emcee in Sabah and I could say he is one of the best in town and he sings very well too. Thank you once again for emceeing on our wedding. God bless in your future endeavours."
