My name is Philip Gardner and I am a fully trained and qualified Professional Toastmaster and Master of Ceremonies. I have been a Professional Toastmaster for some 15 years, and have been married over 500 times. My motto is 'Low Key but Effective'
I pride myself on my style being professional whilst not being regimental or obtrusive.
My role is that of a liaison throughout your 'Big Day' to ensure it flows apparently quite effortlessly to a successful conclusion.
WHY USE A TOASTMASTER?
The Toastmaster will remove all the stress and worries on the 'Big Day'
The Toastmaster will make sure that everybody involved in the organisation of the day performs to the best of their ability.
The Toastmaster will make sure that everything runs according to your wishes & requirements.
The Toastmaster will ensure that your day is conducted with authority and dignity but without being overbearing.
The Toastmaster is there to offer independent advice and can be consulted on all different facets of the occasion.
The Toastmaster will add that extra 'Touch of Class' to the occasion.
Distance is no object and I am happy to offer my professional services at any event in the UK or Europe.
I have officiated at many types of functions, including Weddings of all cultures, Ladies Masonic Festivals, Formal Dinners and Award Ceremonies, Bar mitzvahs, and several Royal occasions.
I have also been fortunate enough to have appeared in several film and television roles in my capacity as a Toastmaster, including 'Bridget Jones the Edge of Reason', 'Made in Chelsea', and BBC's Wedding Stories.
I am Secretary of the Guild of International Professional Toastmasters, and was voted 'Toastmaster of the Year' in 2007.
