Bob has been involved in the entertainment and hospitality sector throughout his adult life. A former DJ and radio presenter, Bob was well known in the licensed trade for over 30 years.
Following formal training at the Ivor Spencer School for Toastmasters, Bob has regularly acted as Toastmaster and Master of Ceremonies during the past 16 years. Whilst the majority of his work has been at weddings (of all cultures), Bob is one of the leading and most knowledgeable Toastmasters on Civic Events. Bob was made an "Honorary Alderman" by East Herts District Council in 2011. He has also worked at royal events, Burns Night Suppers, Masonic Ladies Festivals and Company and Society Dinners.
Bob lives on the Hertfordshire / Essex border and has worked at most of the large London Hotels as well as many throughout the South and East of England and into the Midlands. He is the recommended Toastmaster at The Manor of Groves in Sawbridgeworth, Herts. Bob has also been in demand for weddings outside the UK in recent years.
Bob is well placed to give help and advice on many venues, both in choosing the most appropriate one for your function and in highlighting any issues you should discuss with the hotel's function managers. Although Bob has a huge amount of local knowledge he does travel throughout the country and abroad and is willing to travel anywhere.
Bob was elected Toastmaster of the Year in 2006 has been Chairman of the Guild of International Professional Toastmasters since 2005.
Except when protocol calls for a more formal atmosphere, Bob believes in conducting his functions in an informal and relaxed manner. At weddings, he never forgets that this is the bride's most important day of her life and whilst giving advice, will work tirelessly to ensure that she enjoys the day in the way she wants it to run.
As one of the Guild's tutors at its school for Toastmasters, Bob is proud to have trained many of today's most knowledgeable and excellent Toastmasters now operating throughout the UK.
