 I am writing to thank you for coming along at very late notice to be the Toastmaster at the Kent MS Therapy Centre’s Christmas Ball. We managed to raise just over £5,000 which is brilliant considering the difficult circumstances and we couldn't have done it without you.  As you can imagine, recent times have been particularly challenging for our charity due to the Covid-19 pandemic therefore your time is extremely appreciated. We are so lucky to have your support. It really means the world to everyone here at the charity, from members to staff and our many brilliant volunteers.  Mia Bernthal Thank you once again for supporting the Kent MS Therapy Centre.   Mia Bernthal 11th December 2021

The  Fee
The Guild of Professional Toastmasters have a recommended Fee scale which accurately represents the level of service required to meet the needs of our clients.
As an example, currently for 2022 the fee to provide service at a Wedding is £500.00.

Discounts may be possible and are dependant on having a personal discussion with Trevor to establish your requirements for the day. 

Credit Card payments are accepted from June 2022. Simply call to reserve your date and provide card details to;

Trevor on 07768 176551

For all other  functions please call for a bespoke quotation.
​​​​Many of you who have made plans for a Wedding this being the most exciting time of your lives are without doubt very disappointed with the way in which this dreadful Covid 19 has completely changed our way of life.
Any change to the date of your Wedding will be accommodated even moving to 2021. Trevor will do his upmost to provide service personally on your new date. However in the event of circumstances preventing him from doing so, you have the assurance of knowing the Guild of Professional Toastmasters will be able to supply one of it's Fellows to ensure your Day is managed perfectly.
It is also the case that the same terms will apply for any other function such as a Masonic Ladies Festival or Formal Dinner. Trevor will always seek to accommodate you whatever the challenge.
Traditionally a Toastmaster will attend a number of Wedding exhibitions and Fayres throughout the year. Trevor has always supported Wedding Fayres in those venues with whom he has worked closely with over a number of years.
As there is a huge variety of Wedding Professionals to speak with at such occasions, a personal meeting will be the best solution.
This can be arranged at your home without any obligation to discuss exactly how you would like your special day to unfold. With modern day technology a virtual meeting via ZOOM may be another alternative.
The emphasis on the way in which Trevor manages your day is totally your choice. A Toastmaster knows how to handle the protocol required but will only ever provide a service as specified by you. Important factor's of Wedding celebrations today are Happiness, Laughter and Fun, often with or without formality, the choice is yours. You can gain a sense of the way in which Trevor can provide a service to your exact needs by checking out  the photo gallery contained on this website.
The terms for supplying Toastmaster Services remain the same even if your circumstances change.
Once you have decided Trevor is the Toastmaster you wish to reserve for your event, a non refundable booking fee of 50% of the total cost will guarantee the date. The balance is payable thirty days before your event. Payments can now be made with a credit card.
Circumstances such as those we have experienced during the Spring of 2020 will almost certainly cause you to re-arrange your date. In this situation the balance will not become payable until thirty days before the newly arranged event date.
This question is raised more often then you might imagine. Often the thought of having to speak publicly is far worse than the deed on the day. Trevor can assist in a number of ways. Perhaps as an example, guidance about content. Because Trevor will have his own P.A.system with hands free mic available, this will make a huge difference to the delivery of the speech if the speech maker has a naturally soft speaking voice. Experience over the years has proved that following a good banquet with plentiful wine the task of making speeches by The Father of the Bride, The Bridegroom and The Best Man becomes far less daunting.
You can rely on Trevor, your Toastmaster for as long as you wish him to attend you on this important day.
Normal practice will see the Toastmaster arriving up to two hours before your Ceremony is due to take place. This specifically applies to ceremonies taking place at the same venue as your planned Wedding Breakfast and evening party. The Toastmaster can attend church if required but this generally is not necessary.
How the day unfolds and what you will expect from the Toastmaster will be covered in our planning meeting held well in advance of your Marriage. The service provided can include announcement of the First Dance, this normally takes place around 8pm, therefore where a ceremony having taken place at 2pm it will mean the Toastmasters' average time with you and your guests will be around eight hours.
To keep my fee's competitive, as a general rule I will work within a seventy mile radius of my home in Ashford. This will cover the counties of Kent, Sussex, Surrey, South East Essex and most of Greater London
I am pleased to say that I am a recommended provider to;

Howfield Manor Hotel, Chartham Canterbury CT4 7HQ, where you will be able to reserve my services for your Wedding as part of a price inclusive package.

Additionally I have the recommendation of;
Lympne Castle, near Folkestone
Ashford International Hotel, Ashford
Burlington Hotel, Folkestone


If you would like to reserve my services outside of the geographical area's stated, I will be pleased to accordingly provide a bespoke
price.
Yes - although Trevor has arrangements with hotels and venue's being their preferred Toastmaster, it does not preclude him from working directly with you, the event organiser, in any venue of your choice. Trevor has a standard fee structure which will cover travelling a round trip of 140 miles. Beyond this mileage there will be a surcharge based on additional mileage only.
The fee structure really does depend on many factors. How long will the Toastmaster need to be in attendance? What level of input will be required? How much pre-planning is necessary? The simpliest way for Trevor to provide a costing is to gain some preliminary answers from you, the client. This can be achieved quickly and easily by a telephone discussion. You will not be in any way obligated to engage Trevor, and you can use the opportunity to ask as many questions as necessary.
This website now provides the Guild recommended fee scale but it is worth a call to Trevor who may well be able to improve on this figure.
