…to transforming your day as your dedicated toastmaster.
Whether it’s a wedding, a corporate event or a society banquet, every event deserves to run smoothly. As your dedicated toastmaster and MC I’ll provide an unforgettable service that’s professional, smooth and guaranteed to take the pressure off you. From making arrangements in advance, through to introducing guests and complete toastmaster duties during the event, I’m committed to making your event the best that it can be.
Having spent 15 years as a Royal Marine, I know a thing or two about pressured situations, so I can take care of any toastmaster duties with the confidence and ease that you’d expect. You’ve spent long enough planning the event; this is your time to relax and enjoy yourself, while I take care of the formal duties for you.
As a fellow, executive member and former president of the Northern Guild of Toastmasters, I recognise the many advantages of involving a qualified toastmaster in your event. I’ll bring style, class and humour to every occasion, creating an inimitably rich and good-natured atmosphere that you and your guests will love.
When you choose me to be your toastmaster or master of ceremonies, I’ll go the extra mile to make sure your event runs smoothly for you and your guests. Being a toastmaster isn’t just about standing up and saying a few words – it’s about putting guests at ease, keeping things running to time, and making sure that everyone goes away with wonderful memories.
Key among my skills is in understanding my audience and providing a toastmaster service that’s appropriate to the event. I’m sure you’ve experienced pre-speech nerves before – by employing me as your toastmaster or master of ceremonies, you can free yourself of this added pressure of hosting an event, as my practised and confident delivery keeps the mood of your event buoyant.
As you’d expect from a fellow member of the Northern Guild of Toastmasters, I’m based in the north of England – specifically, the Lancashire and Cheshire areas. However, I’ll gladly travel nationally and even internationally to bring savvy and style to your event.
The duties of an event host and toastmaster are second nature to me: I understand that your event is important, so I offer a complete suite of MC skills. Dressed in a white tie and red tailcoat, I’ll bring an air of dignity and authority to proceedings while I accomplish whichever duties you need me to. My most frequently performed duties include introducing special guests, making announcements, organising fundraising events, and presenting cabaret, although there are many more strings to my bow…
Whether you need me to work as your toastmaster, event host or wedding MC, I’ll work closely with you to ensure that the service I provide is exactly right for your occasion. My extensive experience as a toastmaster and MC at the most prestigious events means that I can adapt my role and presence – retaining the air of professionalism and style that characterises my work, whilst staying appropriate to the audience and flow of the event.
If your chosen venue doesn’t have a sound system, don’t worry; I have a full complement of Bose sound equipment along with a microphone and background music which keeps the atmosphere alive during a meal or drinks reception. And when my job is done, I won’t disappear – I can remain in attendance to address your guests until the entertainment arrives. If the worst happens and they don’t arrive, I can stay at the venue for the evening so you won’t be left high and dry.
Your wedding should be a flawless experience for everyone involved, and I’ll work hard to ensure that everything runs according to plan. I’ll liaise with the hotel, catering staff and photographer diplomatically yet decisively to make your dreams a reality.
Similarly, corporate receptions and banquets will always run more smoothly with my help: my sense of feeling for the occasion and vast experience as a toastmaster allow me to provide a service that’s well organised and smooth, but without overshadowing the fact that this is your event.
… and whatever the occasion, I’ll advise you on why
I’m the perfect toastmaster for you.
Call or email, and I’ll be glad to help.
