Phil has had 30 years' service with the University of Wales in Cardiff working on cutting edge research projects, followed by 9 years working with the Welsh Development Agency/ Welsh Assembly Government, specialising in New Products Development, Intellectual Property / Business development.
He has travelled the word extensively and been involved with National / International Trade Exhibitions, made many Radio/ TV appearances championing both Individuals and Small and Medium Enterprises.
After retiring from the Welsh Assembly Government Phil set up his company 'Sense of Occasion'
Phil is now proud to be an Associate Member of the National Association of Toastmasters, having satisfied the Board of Examiners in written examination and presentation the extent of his knowledge, experience and competency. (The only member in Wales and one who speaks Welsh fluently)
Being a Toastmaster is not about just turning up at an event for a couple of hours, proclaiming some announcements then leaving with a cheque.
Today's Professional Toastmaster will meet up with the client at least once before the event, meet and liaise with function managers, and compose a detailed dossier of the client's requirement. Good Toastmaster's earn their professional fees!
You need sensitivity and well-honed interpersonal skills, attention to detail, tact and diplomacy. These together with good management skills are fundamental to the work of a professional toastmaster.
Phil recognises that every event is unique and special. He has a friendly, caring approach where nothing is too much trouble; the consummate professional providing a very personal service.
Phil is happy to officiate in either Welsh or English glad to preside over the grandest of formal occasions or the humblest of village hall events.
Please feel free to contact Phil at any time for assistance or advice he will be happy to discuss your requirement without any obligation or pressure.
