Why Employ a Toastmaster?

The job title Toastmaster is a bit of a misnomer as a Toastmaster rarely makes a toast. A more accurate description of what they actually do is ‘Master of Ceremonies’ or ‘Event Facilitator’.

A Toastmaster really does not do ‘what is written on the tin’ they actually do an awful lot more.  

But why employ, or more appropriately, invest in a Toastmaster?

A Toastmaster’s primary objective is to make your event run smoothly, ensure your guests have a memorable day and take away any pressure from the organiser and their guests.

The majority of good venues will agree that to guarantee a fun and successful wedding it is really important to have someone at the event who will ensure that:

  • The venue duty manager has a point of contact to direct Bridal Party and supplier activities
  • Registrars are happy
  •  Everyone knows where they should be, when they should be there and what they need to do 
  • Everyone is in the right place at the right time 
  •  The Wedding runs to time 
  • The photographer is supported when trying to ‘gather’ family, friends and guests for the group photographs
  • Any surprises or unexpected occurrences are managed without a fuss
  • Everyone, including those making any speeches, remain relaxed, ready and really enjoy themselves throughout the day

It is a real bonus if the Best Man, Maid of Honour, Ushers, Groomsmen, Bridesmaids or even the venue’s Duty Manager has time to:

  • Liaise with the Registrar team
  • ‘Round up’ guests for photographs
  • Organise a receiving line 
  • Manage any unexpected surprises or make announcements
  • Ensure everything runs to schedule
  • Liaise with the venue and suppliers
  • Introduce the speeches

A Toastmaster is trained to demonstrate a quiet confidence and to manage all these activities, and many more. Their mission is to ensure the Bridal Party, or event organiser and their guests have a memorable, enjoyable and stress-free day.

A Toastmaster’s services should not be seen as ‘another expense’. They should really be recognised as an investment that will ensure a Bride’s wedding or event organiser’s plans become a fun based reality. 

So why not drop me a line to see what I can do to make your event truly memorable - for all the right reasons.
