The members of the Society are able to provide exactly the level of formality and event co-ordination that ensures our clients' expectations are met and usually surpassed. Although named ‘The Society of London Toastmasters’ our members do in fact work all over the UK and throughout Europe, and have officiated at functions in the United States where members of the Royal Family have been guests of honour.
The Society of London Toastmasters has the unique distinction of providing the Toastmaster for the City of London Lord Mayor’s Annual Banquet for more than 50 years. During that same period we have also provided the Toastmaster for virtually all the State Banquets held in honour of visiting Royals or Heads of State to the UK. Our members regularly officiate at functions attended by members of the Royal Family and members of the other European Royal families.
Our members continue to provide their services for the grand dinners of the City Livery Companies, for major organisations and institutions and at the many high profile events organised by the Variety Club of Great Britain, The Lords Taverners, The Lady Taverners, The Grand Order of Water Rats and The Wooden Spoon Society to name but a few. We also provided the Toastmaster for the Inaugural Ball celebrating the launch of the world's biggest passenger liner, the Queen Mary II in January 2004.
Apart from sounding our gavels and making those formal introductory announcements, our members are often called upon to provide their special skills in less formal ways. Our members are always in demand for weddings and barmitzvahs and are expert on the protocols of the various cultures within the UK. We are often engaged to host award ceremonies, to compere corporate fundraising events and concerts, as auctioneers, and as host announcers at product launches and receptions, as well as being engaged as the traditional Toastmaster at Masonic, Round Table and Rotary events, but at every function our members are always utilising their skills as production and event co-ordinators.
Whether you are organising a high profile event or an informal occasion, a Toastmaster from the Society of London Toastmasters will help you ensure that your function is a tremendous success !
