About Roger, your Somerset Toastmaster ...
Born & raised in South Wales where my Father was the Secretary of the Branch committee of the Royal Air Force Association as well as the Standard Bearer I was quickly introduced to helping others. I soon found myself a proud member of the Air Training Corp in my home town of Neath. I still remember marching and taking part in the various memorial services & celebrations.
As a youth, helping my Father I became involved in various fundraising activities, social events and escorted my Father to many a social event, fundraiser & wedding. Unfortunately this meant that I also attended many a funeral of RAFA Members and others. I was always encouraged to lend a helping hand to Family, friends and even Strangers. I look back at this period of my life as a fantastic grounding and apprenticeship in life.
After School I joined the ranks of the South Wales Constabulary Police Cadet College but my career was curtailed by illness and so I switched careers to Retail where I spent many happy years.
Eventually in the early 80's I migrated 'Across the Bridge' to the beautiful County of Somerset where I have lived ever since, I have enjoyed success (& failures) in the Hospitality, Leisure & Entertainment markets for large National Companies as well as local independant traders, I owned and managed my own hostelry for a number of years. The experience gained over 30 years in total and in Somerset over the last 20 + years I believe stands me in good stead as a Person and as a Professional Toastmaster, I have the experience & diplomacy to deal with most situations and a fresh, modern approach combined with a positive attitude that allows me to keep going when others fall behind.
I am dedicated to giving the best level of Professional Customer Service that I can and keeping a Positive Attitude in times of strife as I firmly believe that you choose the attidude that dictates which way your life leads.
My favourite quotation goes something like this ...
''People WILL Forget what you say ....
People WILL forget what you do .....
People WILL NEVER forget how you make them feel''
This how I like to try and lead my life, by trying to make people feel good about themselves and what they and I do. So rest assured, that if you choose me as your Wedding Toastmaster then you can expect to receive a level of service unsurpassed by many.
Although my Toastmaster duties will vary according to the degree of formality that you require, I will warmly and professionally ensure the smooth running of your day in the way and style that suites you. The Somerset Toastmaster is able to provide services as a host, MC, presenter, auctioneer as well as a corporate, event and wedding toastmaster.
I look forward to our chat & meeting you
