It was after a dinner at Shrigley Hall In Cheshire when TV Personality Martyn Lewis said to John Welch: “You are the best After Dinner Speaker I have ever heard”.
This is just one of the many accolades that John has received from the celebrities and clients who have heard him speak.
Name any type of function – whether it be a large formal banquet, sales conference, sportsman’s dinner, corporate dinner or golf day – John has spoken at all these types of events.
Not everyone, whether a top businessman or a even politician can be expected to have the talents of a witty and entertaining After Dinner Speaker, but John is well proven to have all those attributes.
Always fresh and highly entertaining John’s timing and delivery are acknowledged by his fellow professionals to be of the best.
Having been on the after dinner circuit for over 20 years, he is now firmly established as one of the U.K.’s top ten speakers and has travelled extensively abroad, speaking at dinners in South Africa, Dubai, Qatar, Bahrain, Spain, France, Holland and Germany.
The list of companies who have used his services reads like the FT Index and includes Shell UK; Lloyds; Barclays; IBM; TNT; Courtaulds; British Gas; Powergen; Telecom; RAC; Tarmac; McAlpine; Canon; Ford, Rover; Volvo; Mercedes; Scania; British Steel; Securicor; BOC; Girobank; Eagle Star; Bass; Nestle UK; AXA; Lombard and National Tyres.
His background as a non-commissioned officer in the Coldstream Guards is reflected in his commanding style and excellent delivery.
John’s great love is golf and he is a past Captain of his golf club in Worcester. He comes highly recommended by the PGA and has been the guest speaker at the Emirates Golf Club in Dubai and the Awali Golf Club in Bahrain.
Having spoken at many Round Table, Rotary and Masonic functions, he is equally at home on the sporting scene. At one Premier League Club, he recently made his 13th appearance.
So why take a chance on your next dinner? Put it in the safe hands of a true professional and have your audience rolling with laughter with one of the best speakers on the circuit.
