He has helped to raise thousands of pounds at charity events for HEART UK, the National Society for Epilepsy, UNICEF, and Children in Crisis. He deals with celebrities and dignitaries in the West End, and the Guildhall, Mansion House and Livery Halls in the City of London as well as locally. In the UK, his work can take him from town halls to stately homes and Park Lane hotels and from school gyms or marquees to the House of Commons. He is ready to guide guests with European and Asian languages.
