Today we have the eloquent John Ashmele, who is sharing with us what a toastmaster is, and why you should have one! A professional Toastmaster and Master of Ceremonies, John prides himself on remaining the height of etiquette, whilst advising couples on the correct protocol for your big day!
What is a Toastmaster?
A Toastmaster or Master of Ceremonies is someone who has acquired the management skills, tact, experience and expertise required for any function to run smoothly. This applies to a wedding or other family celebration, civic or corporate event, or a charity and fund-raising event.
What does a Toastmaster do?
A Toastmaster or Master of Ceremonies will discuss every aspect of your function with you. He will be able to advise you on procedure, timing and protocol. He will take your agreed plan and make it work on the day; he will ensure that everything runs smoothly and on time and that announcements and introductions are made using the appropriate etiquette.
Why do I need a Toastmaster?
A Toastmaster or Master of Ceremonies, dressed in his hunting pink livery, will lend gravitas and style to your function. He will liaise with the Function Manager, the photographer, any other suppliers and his watch throughout the day; this means that you will be relieved of most of the stress and will be left free to relax and enjoy the occasion alongside your guests. After several months of planning and preparation, this is the day when you want everything to be just right!
It is very tempting to cut costs and ask a member of your family or a friend to act as your Toastmaster, but this is really the one time when it pays to have an experienced Master of Ceremonies to guide you through the pitfalls rather than just ‘winging it’ on the day.
Have you considered a Toastmaster for your wedding day?
We love the idea of being able to relax whilst someone else looks after the schedule!
Thank you to John Ashmele for joining us today.
