John is a professional, adept and experienced after dinner speaker. John also has a phenomenal, trained memory and uses this to telling effect - he does his "homework" for each event and learns numerous names, details and relevant company information, which he skillfully weaves into his speeches.
In fact the more "inside "knowledge"he can acquire beforehand about a company's people, products and philosophy the better.
An original and refreshingly different alternative to the traditional after dinner speaker, and with a touch of “magic” thrown in.
We needed a speaker for a dinner and presentation evening for a group of future leaders who were completing a year long, high-profile managerial course. We wanted to secure someone that would be able to entertain and engage the group, and able to achieve that with a relatively small number of just 20.
John was able to use his experiences and business knowledge in an engaging manner that was perfect for our event. John exceeded our expectations in terms of his ability to personalise his speech to our audience. They were wholeheartedly impressed by his feats of memory and he had the group in raptures of laughter from the start.
Our evening was a great success and we believe our objective in providing an inspiring and funny speaker was more than fulfilled. We will not hesitate in calling on John again for our next event, he has a warmth, charm and great delivery style that is a valuable commodity.
