Dinner Speakers

Tony Hawks

Television and radio comedian and best-selling author, Tony Hawks is a professional at winning over crowds with his dry wit and slick delivery. His aptitude for ad-libbing and ability to leave audiences in stitches makes him the perfect after-dinner speaker and host for awards ceremonies. Mastering the talent of comic timing, Tony is the ideal speaker to ensure your evening is a memorable one.

Reuben Lynch (Toastmaster)

Reuben Lynch was born on the Caribbean island of Montserrat.

He came to England in 1961 and, after leaving school, joined the British Army, seeing service in Northern Island, the Persian Gulf, Gibraltar, Belize and Germany.

Reuben was sent to the International Restaurant at the Army School of Catering in Aldershot where he qualified to butler standard. This enabled him to spend the last eight years of his service as Manager of an Officers’ Mess, where he entertained HRH The Princess Royal and met their Royal Highnesses The Duchess of Kent and The Duke of Gloucester as well as a host of other VIPs and dignitaries.

Since leaving the army in 1990, Reuben has worked as Conference and Banqueting Manager at a large and very busy hotel in Warwickshire. It was during this time that he qualified as a Professional Toastmaster.

Reuben has many years experience as a Professional Toastmaster and had the honour of being President of the Northern Guild of Toastmasters 2005-2006 and Fellow and Vice-President of The College of Toastmasters.
