Wimbledon All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club 2018

Master of Ceremonies at Wimbledon All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club 2018

Being a big tennis fan, I had the privilege of acting as Toastmaster and Master of Ceremonies at the 150th anniversary dinner of Wimbledon All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club held in the historic Royal palace of Banqueting House. This is as close as anyone gets to touching the Championships singles' trophies without actually winning the tournament!

The photographs show:

  1. I remember our conversation was friendly but the picture suggests otherwise..
  2. Acting as Master of Ceremonies
  3. Dr Joanne Liu made a beautiful acceptance speech which honoured those of her colleagues who were killed and injured at the hospital in Kunduz and those who lost their lives during the Ebola crisis.
  4. This is why we Toastmasters wear red, I am reminded by my colleague Geoff Harris.

Interview at Radio Chelsea and Westminster

Radio Chelsea and Westminster

I was at Chelsea and Westminster hospital Radio being interviewed by good friend Anna Pangbourne and congratulate her on running a lively and interesting show. Somewhat ironic that I am here again just twelve hours after admitting myself to A&E having fallen off a stage the previous night in uniform in front of hundreds with a gash in my arm needing stitches. But hey, couldn't be in a better place or in safer hands. Lucky me. Amazing NHS and caring staff.
