About Chris

Chris Woods

Chris is quickly establishing himself as one of Suffolk's most sought-after toastmasters and master of ceremonies. As a member of the new genre of Toastmasters trained by English Toastmasters Association, the support provided by Chris is much broader than that offered by traditional toastmasters.

Chris is passionate about service excellence and his attention to detail is legendary. He is a highly accomplished manager who has organised many events including a number of Royal visits at home and abroad. He is passionate about client care and he will bring his skills to bear, ensuring your special event is even more special than you imagined possible.

Chris is understanding and compassionate and is skilled in quickly developing relationships and getting on with all those he comes in contact with. He is adept at building teams, settling nerves and bringing the best out in people; qualities much needed when managing events involving several contributors and many guests. Chrisí skills will ensure your event is delivered in just the way you planned. He will add value to your special event, no matter what the occasion, and will ensure the return on your financial and emotional investment is maximised for the enjoyment of all.

Chris is a retired Royal Navy Officer who has developed his people skills in many wide-ranging arenas. During active service he travelled widely, meeting and hosting people from many nations and all walks of life. He is flexible and adaptable, and getting the job done discreetly and without fuss is central to all that he does.

In business, Chris has worked with most of the World's leading TV companies and he is adept at building rapport quickly and gaining credibility. He is an accomplished communicator and no stranger to audiences large and small having briefed members of the Royal Family, ministers, heads of industry and international diplomats. He frequently gives presentations to the business community on topics such as management, leadership, corporate social responsibility and sustainability and he is very happy to help anyone who needs to make a speech whether at a wedding or a corporate event.

Chris actively supports several charities. He is a member of Lions Clubs International (the World's largest service organisation) and is an ardent supporter of Macmillan where his annual engagement as one of Father Christmas's bearded helpers contributes to the fund raising for this worthy charity.
