Terms and Conditions


Member of the UK School of Professional Toastmasters

The fee charged depends on a number of factors including the type of function, the distance that I have to travel, and its expected duration. I shall be only too pleased to provide an immediate quotation for any specific event.

£5M Public Liability insurance cover is held through the Association of the UK School of Professional Toastmasters. 

Engagements are accepted in good faith, based on the information provided by the client, and are deemed to be accepted only when the booking form has been received, the booking fee paid and acknowledged in writing or email.

The booking fee is deducted from the final account. In the event of cancellation it may be non returnable. Please see cancellation charges below.

The balance of the account is payable on invoice fourteen days prior to the event, unless otherwise agreed in writing or email.

The quoted fee is inclusive and is guaranteed for thirty days from the date of the written confirmation.

The right is reserved to increase the fee payable due to altered instructions of engagement. E.g., time of event extended or the venue changed etc.

Every effort is made in good faith to fulfil the engagement, but responsibility cannot be accepted for non arrival due to circumstances beyond control. E.g., to include events such as extreme weather conditions, industrial action, failure of public services etc. in the event of non arrival, a mitigating refund may be made to the client, according to the circumstances.

In the event of illness, every effort will be made to provide a substitute Professional Toastmaster, and to pass on full details of the booking and planning documentation for the event. No additional fee will be charged.

In the event of cancellation by the client for any reason, the following charges will apply:

  • From acceptance of the booking up to four months prior to the event, the booking fee paid.
  • Between two and four months prior to the event, fifty percent of the agreed fee, less the booking fee.
  • Within two months of the event, the full agreed fee is payable, less the booking fee
