Jane Burridge - The Lady Toastmaster

The red-coated Toastmaster is a uniquely British tradition, lending distinction to formal and semi-formal ceremonies, events and celebrations. The modern Toastmaster offers the traditional services of greeting and announcing guests and introducing speeches and toasts, but combines these with the roles of advisor, coordinator, function liaison, linkman and diplomat.

Jane Burridge, The Lady Toastmaster, is one of the very few professionally trained ladies working in this field. Jane will advise on the correct procedure in accordance with the accepted traditions of social order, protocol and etiquette; she will act as a master of ceremonies in a formal or informal manner; and she will co-ordinate the event on the day so host and guests may relax, knowing that someone has an eye on the clock, the formalities and the guests.

Why book a Toastmaster?

Why leave the coordination of your event to friends or family – or worse, to chance? A professionally-trained Toastmaster is an expert in procedure and etiquette, with the combination of tact, management skills and attention to detail necessary for the smooth running of events often involving large numbers of people.
