Michael Wood - Toastmaster

History of Toastmaster

The art of Toastmastering can be traced as far back as Hebrew times and to the practices of the Greeks and Romans of offering toasts to their many gods and heroes. During the reign of King Charles II, it was customary to drop pieces of spiced toast into wine to improve its flavour, and by the 17th century the 'Toasting' of friends and important guests at banquets had become very popular. The origins of Toastmastering as we know it today began in the 19th century, when private clubs began to appoint a member to act as a Master of Ceremonies.

In today’s modern times a professional Toastmaster will serve to enhance and bring extra gravitas to your event whilst ensuring that you make a lasting impression with your guests.
