There are Toastmasters and there are toastmasters, and then there is The Man in the Red Coat.
Younger than the average Toastmaster, less military but just as commanding. James comes from a customer service background and fully understands that the day is all about you and your guests.
Following a pre-meeting where all your wishes are laid out and the schedule is determined, you can begin to relax about the day itself.
He works in parallel with all your other suppliers, coordinating with each of them and controlling the timing of your great day.
Whilst working with them, he also guides you and all your guests through the day's rituals and ceremonies, in some case giving explanations and in others just encouraging movement.
Everything is done with a smile and with warmth, but when required, authority. If you ever wondered why you would need a toastmaster, then if you want to enjoy the day as much as your guests, that has to be the best reason. You can relax, chat and enjoy the company of your family and friends in the knowledge that someone is watching the clock, coordinating the show and that when you are needed he will come and give you warning that something is going to happen.
Why choose The Man in the Red Coat over other Toastmasters? Well, because he does not come from a military background, but one from performing arts and customer service, he has the ability to adjust his delivery to a style that is to your liking. So not every delivery is the same. He is tall at 6' 3" and so, regardless of whether he is dressed in his red coat, is normally identifiable. He is also a trainer by trade, when not guiding people through events, and his specialty is presentation skills. So he can give all your speakers guidance and extra confidence should they require it on or before the day.
Finally, on the subject of confidence, that is a word you should remember. Getting married is expensive, so don't waste it on delivery. Use The Man in the Red Coat and have confidence!
