Hi, I am Paul Dempsey M.Inst.MCT and I am a professional fully trained Toastmaster/Master of Ceremonies. I possess the know-how and experience to lend a very special touch to your event. No matter if it is to be formal, semi-formal, or very relaxed. Not only do I bring with me a style and panache to ensure that the day runs smoothly, but I have a lot of experience in hosting wedding and events but with the added bonus of a lengthy career in hotel management and catering so I know exactly what works and what simply does not.
A Toastmaster or a Master of Ceremonies is not just there to do a bit of “public speaking” nor is he only required when an event is formal or very large to simply add pomp and formality to the occasion. In fact, the majority of what I will do on your special day will never be seen by you or your guests, such as;
· the careful planning before the day of the event.
· the attention to detail throughout the event,
· the close liaison with the staff at the venue and other professionals,
· the deft and tactful handling of any unplanned occurrence,
· the management of large numbers of people,
· the correct and proper dealings with dignitaries and VIPs
The list is endless; however, my objective is to ensure that your event runs smoothly and apparently effortlessly, without you, your family, friends or guests needing to worry about anything other than enjoying the day.
Although this may be your first time organising such an event, you can rest assured that I have experienced many different events and I can therefore advise you on everything from timings to etiquette and protocol.
The specifics of my Toastmaster duties and responsibilities at the event will vary according to the type of event and according to your specific requirements. However, no matter what kind of event, the role of your Toastmaster is that unique mix of adviser, organiser, linkman, diplomat, voice and presence, which defines the modern professional Toastmaster.
Please feel free to contact me - I would love to hear from you.
