toastRobin has been involved in the hospitality industry since he was 17 years old.  His experience started with P & O Cruises where he was a Purser for 19 years.  Cruising the world, meeting diplomats, stars and super stars as well as his main job of running the hotel side of a luxury cruise liner.  Subsequently he opened a Travel Agency organising people's "dream" holidays and now spends much of his time organisng peoples 'dream' weddings and officiating at banquets and events ensuring that everything runs as smoothly as possible in order that the participants can enjoy themselves to the maximum.

The main reason for employing The Toastmaster, apart from using their talents  and experience, is to get somebody else to ensure things go to plan and take the responsibilities off the shoulders of the people who are there to relax and enjoy their special occasion.

At a dinner party one should eat wisely
             but not too well,                       

             and talk well                  
 but not too wisely.

W Somerset Maugham 1874 — 1965

Following my experience with P & O Cruises as a Senior Officer in the Purser's Department travelling the world and mixing with the most interesting people from the most interesting of countries I settled ashore and started my Travel Agency business.  This I ran successfully for 11 years learning both the business world from an Entrepreneurial point of view as well as from the corporate and private sectors view point, having to succeed profitably approaching a recession and subsequent global crash.   Following these experiences I was given the opportunity to pass on my business experience  in the sphere of  Education having been approached to teach Further and Higher  Education students studying Travel and Tourism in the subjects of  Marketing and Finance.  My career in teaching changed direction after being head hunted to teach business studies at Diploma level and subsequently MBA to overseas students at Universities in the UK.

I have actively followed my desire to Train by starting my own Training Company in 2008, gaining affiliation to Hammersmith College, training in the Hospitality environment as well as succesfully setting up a Cruise Ship Management Course for Thames Valley University. I have worked with English Speaking Board as an examiner in English Communication Skills as well as specifically ESOL and Business Communication skills.

Having completed a TEFL and Business English course with I am now looking to advance my teaching career into the field of Teaching Business English as a Foreign Language to overseas students particulary in their own country.  Having experience of teaching students from the Far East, South America and Europe I feel I am in an ideal position to appreciate student requirements and ethnic diversity.  I have French and German basic linguistic skills as well as being in the process of learning Italian and Greek.  However my main unique selling point is having been born in south London and speaking the 'Queens English' since being able to talk thereby being able to communicate in English at an extremely high standard, as well as being a qualified teacher with continuous experience for the past 14 years.
