The London Toastmaster Rubbing Shoulders with Britain's Got Talent 2009 Finalists
A Toastmaster's life is not all about pomp, ceremony and formal announcements. Sometimes we need to introduce fun elements to the programme and here are two examples of recent experiences. From 'Britain's Got Talent' we have finalists Julia Naidenko, the mesmerising Latvian belly dancer who was engaged to entertain at a Kurdish wedding where I was the Toastmaster and the hilarious Stavros Flatley and his son who were performing at a charity Ball where I was the Master of Ceremonies. Despite neither act winning the talent contest, both are much in demand at celebrations, parties, weddings and Balls. Of course, I just had to have my picture taken with them.
