- Vocal Versatility
Angela will be using her talents as a vocal coach to show you that your voice can be one of your biggest assets. So, when faced with having to host the fashion show or company awards ceremony, you'll be better equipped to command your audience, and gain the confidence to take on bigger challenges.
Angela was born into a family with a rich entertainment heritage. Her father was an accomplished and popular ukulele performer, her mother was a fine classical singer and her much loved uncle was the cheeky Lancastrian ukulele playing 1940s film star George Formby! It was no surprise that her first stage appearance was at the tender age of three during one of her dad’s music hall performances, dancing away to her father's ukulele playing!
Having studied at the Welsh College of Music and Drama in her formative years Angela’s talents are now focused on the education and motivation of other performers through vocal coaching, teaching and consultancy work.
- Becoming The Host DJ
Are you ready to move to the next level by acting as host at your weddings and functions? Would you like to maximise your earning potential?
With over 35 years of experience as a DJ, David Finch, has also served as a Toastmaster for over 15 years. He's a member of the Executive Guild of Toastmasters and is well qualified to explain how using the techniques of a Toastmaster, we can raise our game and thus become more than 'just the DJ', becoming the 'host' of each event.
David will provide you with an insight into working as a Toastmaster and Master of Ceremonies. He will explain how to add the right balance of dignity and formality to your events. This seminar will also highlight areas such as initial planning and client advice through to etiquette, traditions, timings and speeches (who say's what and when). This will all ensure functions run smoothly and are presented in a professional manner.
