Vince the Toastmaster

I was trained by the Guild of International Professional Toastmasters, which was established over 30 years ago. The Guild was created for the improvement of the profession & was founded by Ivor Spencer M.B.E. who officiated at over 1,000 Royal events. So, you can be assured that I have received training to the highest of standards by a recognised national examining body.

 

You will find that I have a friendly, caring approach to my work. Although I will maintain style & professionalism throughout your event, no matter how big or small, you will discover that I am not obtrusive or overbearing. This is your day & I am here to ensure that it runs seamlessly & concludes as a special, memorable occasion.

 

I will serve to enhance your event, ensuring that every detail is taken care of to alleviate any stress, allowing you, my hosts, to sit back, relax & enjoy the moment. My extensive years of service within the police has provided me with an immaculate standard of appearance as well as meticulous attention to detail, qualities of which I pride myself with. I recognise the importance of operating to a strict schedule without lowering the quality of my performance & professionalism. Although being based in Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire, I am willing travel throughout the U.K. or further afield to make your day the best it can be.

 

Thank you for visiting my site, I look forward to serving you in the near future.
