I am a professional Toastmaster and Master of Ceremonies. I am a Member of the English Toastmasters Association and I am based in Harrow, Middlesex but work across the UK and willing to work internationally. I have many years of experience in the entertainment industry working with many suppliers, ensuring your requirements of the Toastmaster are met. My focus as a Toastmaster is you and your guests. I will always put you at the heart of my work.

WHAT IS A TOASTMASTER

A Toastmaster is a key person at any occasion where there is a degree of formality required. Formal occasions can be daunting for many people as they may be inexperienced at either organising or even attending such events. It is important, therefore, to have someone who has experience of such situations who can make sure things go smoothly.

Toastmasters are ususally forgotten but are really an essential part of the big day. Many people think a Toastmaster simply makes announcements. This is just a small part of their work. Much of what a Toastmaster does happens before the event. They work closely with the client and / or the event manager to make sure that the tone and timetable is appropriate and is what the client wants. They will also work closely with the staff at the venue to ensure these wishes are followed through.

A Toastmaster can can help the day run smoothly and work with the event planner to organise suppliers, leaving you to have a stress-free celebration. They are experts in time management. When planning a wedding or event, think of it like a unique production. It will require lots of direction, stage management and excellent communications. A Toastmaster is the voice of the bride and groom, the eyes and ears of the family and in their attire able to move around to make sure that all plans are delivered as expected. You may feel that some of these duties fall to the Event Manager, and yes, you are right but the difference is on the day The Toastmaster is your visual spokesperson. Toastmasters appear formal in their uniform, which often includes a red tailcoat. However, as well as giving structure and gravitas to proceedings, they use their skills and personality to ensure that their guests are at ease. An excellent Toastmaster will be able to assess the mood of the event and help create the right atmosphere.

At the event, the Toastmaster will ensure things run smoothly. At a wedding, for example, he or she will be responsible for orchestrating any or all of the following important moments; announcements, greeting the wedding party and guests, announcing guests, arranging the receiving line, introducing speeches, ensuring the guest book is signed, liaising with photographers, looking after cards and gifts, arranging the cutting of the cake, bouquet toss and introducing speakers and the first dance. The bride and groom should certainly not be concerning themselves with what happens next on their special day, and neither should their guests. The Toastmaster provides direction, often to large numbers of people, and thus holds the whole day together. The Toastmaster would also ensure lighting and sound levels are appropriately set and liaise with staff and musicians on timing.

    Sonal is a superb toastmaster, great public speaker, master of ceremonies and a wedding planner \”all in one\”. Had witnessed all this at my cousin\’s wedding over the weekend. She is so organised, truly entertaining and very professional too. Her English is immaculate and she knows how to hold the audience\’s interest.

    So my wife and I were looking for a toastmaster and being a same sex marriage we initially wanted a female toastmaster but we left it last minute. Thankfully Sonal was available and what a grand job she did.
    She kept the guests entertained before our entrance and a true professional.
    A great laugh to and a humble soul.
    Thank you Sonal for your awesomeness. xXx

    Sonal was the MC at our Charity Events in the House of Commons. She was professional, funny and led the evening smoothly. Enjoyed having her support – she made a huge difference to the event. I would highly recommend her.

    Sonal was a magical component to the overwhelming event we hosted at the Intercontinental O2. This was a very interesting day and a very demanding event for all the VIP and VVIP guests. I was so thankful for the help provided by the Sonal and the Toastmasters and insisted that the event needed their special touch and expertise! I will not hold any events unless I have Sonal or one of her colleagues in scarlet! Thank you Sonal Dave!
