90th Birthday Party - St Dunstan's College


Our family recently hosted a 90th birthday Thanksgiving celebration for our father. We had over 130 guests primarily from our church. We commissioned Flavia McDonald a Red Jacket Toastmaster to conduct our affairs.

We were extremely impressed with Flavia’s organisational skills and planning for this very special event.  Prior to the event Flavia met with the key family members responsible for organising the day on more than one occasion, and she accompanied us to visit the venue so that she could be aware of the logistics for the day.  She worked with the family in drawing up the timetabled programme for the day.


When the day came Flavia arrived well ahead of time to liaise with family members and caterers so that the latter knew exactly when the food had to be served. Flavia demonstrated her ability to exercise flexibility to accommodate some last minute changes to the programme.
Flavia’s role was critical to ensuring the day ran smoothly and for which our family are eternally grateful.  Flavia provided a highly professional service and she was very warm and kind to everyone. We would strongly recommend her service, and would not hesitate to use her again. 

Thank you Flavia for making our Dad’s 90th such a special occasion.

May your service and work in this area be continually blessed.

Wedding at Gilwell Park, Chingford, London


We found Flavia on the official Toastmasters website and began corresponding regarding her officiating our wedding. We met prior to our special day to discuss the timetable which Flavia helped in planning out a more streamlined day. On the day of our wedding she was instrumental in making sure everything was running on time, people were where they needed to be and updating our guests of the proceedings. At the culmination of her duties our guests were full of praise for her professionalism, several of them requested her details which we were happy to provide. From myself and Brenda we would like to say a heartfelt thanks for making our day memorable for all the right reasons, as it would not have been the day it was without your presence.
