I was asked at very short notice (3 hours) if I could cover a Partnership Event being held at Twin Employment and Training in Lewisham, testimonial from Matt Harvey, the Event Manager. 

 Afternoon Jim,

Twin Employment & Training was let down for our corporate event and at very short notice Jim Cattermole offered his services with only limited time left.

Jim took full control of the agenda and suggestions on improvements and the best format so that the evening would run smoothly. Jim went over and above his duty as he personally welcomed every person attending at the greeting door, made all the people feel welcome with his humour and his laugh but at the same time was extremely professional when introducing each guest speaker to the stage.

The event was a total success and he personal supported me so that I could relax and enjoy the evening and I thank him for this. If you are looking for a toastmaster then Jim would be highly recommended.

Regards Matt.
