National Association of Toastmasters Member
Fellow & President
Jevan is a Professional Toastmaster with a stentorian voice, excellent diction and an imposing presence, combined with organisational, planning and scheduling skills from his previous experience.

Very familiar with ceremonial, pageantry and protocol, he was Officer of the Guard for Her Majesty The Queen at Buckingham Palace for the Silver Jubilee and 25yrs later Parade Commander for His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales on Horseguards.
Working for multinational corporations he was a Consultant and Project Manager in the City of London and also for a Paris Fashion House. Media Trained, he ran Media Co-ordination for the EURO96 Football Tournament, Presentation Skills training and was Master of Ceremonies for several Corporate Events.
As a Senior Civil Servant he worked at Ministerial & Chief Constable level and presented at International Conferences in Europe and the US. Jevan has a Masters degree in Business Process Management and is a Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute.
He now runs the Cruise Lecturers Association.
The theatre is his passion, stage managing and performing, from Emcee in "Cabaret" to "Sweeney Todd". He trained as a Voiceover Artist at London Academy of Radio, Film & Television, can sing the Ladies Song for Masonic Ladies' Festivals or, if you want to add a dash of panache to your occasion, open your first bottle of champagne with a sabre as an Embassy Maitre-Sabreur.
Jevan is equally at home and in control running a traditional English Wedding in a private house or a Jewish Wedding in Las Vegas, Awards Ceremonies in large West End venues or Civic/Political/Royal events in Palaces.
