"From the moment we first spoke on the phone I knew we would be in the safest of hands with you as our Master of Ceremonies - something which was incredibly reassuring considering this was Rafiki Thabo Foundation's first ever major fundraising gala. Your guidance, support, encouragement and attention to detail in the run up to the event was incredible and your expert leadership on the night itself, truly faultless. You are an absolute delight to work with and I hope I get the pleasure again at our next gala in 2020!
Janne Pilbeam, Rafiki Thabo Foundation Fundraising Gala Dinner, 15th November 2018

"Verity, as our Master of Ceremonies hosting the occasion of the Leonard Cheshire centenary Masquerade Ball at the Assembly Rooms Bath, brought a dignity and commanding presence to her role. Her effective advice and leadership were invaluable guiding the events of the night to a smooth and timely conclusion. Guests left the prestigious Georgian building with an overriding impression of excellence and efficient organisation. She is so personable and calm that a rapport and trust was quickly established. Somehow, I don't know how.....she does it, but she managed to take away a lot of the stress that an event of this scale inevitably renders on the night, with her reassurances and of course extensive experience; Thereby contributing to the wonderful memories as organiser and also residents and guests will savour long in our memories. A great big thank you for your thoroughly professional service Verity"
Ann Birtwistle, Volunteer Coordinator, Greenhill House, Leonard Cheshire Disability, 23 September 2017
"I asked Verity Bartlett to be the Master of Ceremonies for our annual recognition awards gala dinner and i was not disappointed. From the research and preparation conducted befofre the event, to the masterful control of the evening itself, Ms Bartlett provided a professional confidence to the night and made all our attendees feel very special. This was not the first time we have employed her services and it will certainly not be the last. If you are searching for that something extra to lift your event and make it truly memorable, look no further"
Lt Col Andy Rogers, 5 FS Bn REME - 2 August 2017
"Thank you very much for everything you did at our Gala Fundraising Dinner on Friday. Your annoucements gave the evening real structure, particularly in the early part of our evening when guests were somewhat dispersed around the site. We appreciated your professionalism and your ability to work around the last minute changes to schedule that inevitably crop up at events such as these. Your adaptability was very helpful in giving me one less thing to worry about!"
Mr David Nagle, Brooklands Museum Trust, Gala Fundraising Dinner - 16 June 2017
"We would just like to say a very big thank you for your services on our Wedding Day. When we initially started planning the wedding we did not think about a Toastmaster, but we now feel that it was one of the best decisions we made! Your attention to detail was great-you even covered things we hadn't thought of!
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone else. Thank you once again!
Emma & James Buttigieg, Royal Berkshire Hotel - 3 June 2017
“I found Verity to be the consummate professional. Never intrusive, ever attentive, Verity ensured that we kept to the timings agreed and that we were never rushed. The charity auction was handled brilliantly, the right amount of enthusiasm, humour and pace to keep it moving and extract every ounce out of those bidding - she was fantastic! Overall we raised over £6000 for our charities and that was down to Verity.
As a parting note, if when considering Verity for you event you consider ‘shopping around’, I suggest you don’t. She is a one stop shop for all matters Toasting and she was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Verity - see you again next year. Great job.”
Mr JA Matthews OBE, Edington May Ball - 27 May 2017
"Verity Bartlett, was the Master of Ceremony at my fashion show, in aid of a local charity, during which time Verity was very professional, polite and courteous at all times.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Verity for any event and wish her every success in the future"
Antoinette Morris of Antoinette's Wardrobe, Westbury - 30 October 2016
"At first Kelly and I were not sure whether or not we needed a Toastmaster for our Wedding Day, we thought it was just another expense we could do without. We were both very pleased we decided to use Verity as our Toastmaster; her service has been amazing and very professional. She helped the whole day run smoothly without any hiccups. She certainly looked the part too in her Toastmaster uniform and was a calming presence throughout the whole day. We would definitely recommend her services"
Mr & Mrs Simon Hall - 29 October 2016
"I would like to thank Verity for the thoroughly professional way she compered my Charity Dinner and Auction. The whole evening flowed smoothly from start to finish and kept to the agreed programme timings.

I would have no hesitation in recommending her as Master of Ceremonies at any function"

Hiring a professional Master of Ceremonies for the evening was crucial and Verity delivered above and beyond what we expected.
