We're all experiencing difficult times. Weddings scheduled for this year are being postponed and rearranged, some as far ahead as 2022, and the impact is being felt by all suppliers of services. Toastmasters are no strangers to the difficulty of winning work because so many of the couples planning to marry have no idea how much the engagement of a Toastmaster will do to ease their planning and overcome the stress that always accompanies such a highly charged emotional occasion.
David John Pearson from David J Pearson says: "Most clouds have a silver lining if we look hard enough. The period of lockdown, for example, has driven me to undertake the long-overdue process of tidying my study and getting rid of a small mountain of old paperwork. I can now see all of the desktops all the time. It has also allowed me to set down these thoughts in the hope that they'll encourage more couples to think positively about choosing a toastmaster to help manage their big day and guide them on what to look for. I have also seized the moment by launching a new and improved website (www.dptoastmaster.co.uk).
"To most people attending any function, the only visible signs of a toastmaster's presence are the relatively few announcements he makes – that concept is completely misleading. A toastmaster is, in fact, an experienced event organiser, who is also an expert in procedure, protocol and etiquette, who adds dignity as well as presence to every occasion. A professionally trained and qualified one has the combination of tact, experience, diplomacy and management skills, which are necessary for the effective and smooth running of any function and the direction and enjoyment of large numbers of people.
"A professional works in close liaison with his/her customer to ensure the effective overall management of every type of event and weddings of any culture. Ninety per cent of a toastmaster's activity is never seen by the majority of people attending a function. The discrete and unobtrusive attention to detail and close liaison throughout an event ensures that it flows, apparently quite effortlessly, to the successful conclusion, which is the customer's aim and wishes."
