East Midlands, UK, Overseas
President & Fellow of the National Association of Toastmasters
On leaving school in 1968, Tom became an apprentice hairdresser and then opened his own shop. Unfortunately, it became the male fashion to wear their hair longer and as a very new business, it became untenable. He made a new start with an International photographic company and worked there for 33 years. covering many roles. Photography went digital which prompted Tom again to seek a new challenge – so training commenced with the National Association of Toastmasters and after passing their Associate exam, he enthusiastically took up Toastmastering and a residency followed.
Tom has worked at all types of wedding celebrations and corporate functions, countrywide.
It is one of the biggest honours Tom has received to date to be appointed as President of the NAT. He believes that it is necessary to keep ahead of the trends in this challenging world and maintaining the high standards that have been set by his predecessors, is one of his highest priorities.
