I am a keen after-dinner and conference speaker.
I think I’m the only comedian in the whole world who also writes a financial column, which gives me a unique edge. My after-dinner speeches seem to go down particularly well when the dinner is related in some way to the worlds of finance, trading and investing, stock markets, economics, mining (I’ve got a great after-dinner speech on technical analysis and another good one on mining) and so on. (Enquiries here). Here’re some extracts from odd bits that have been filmed.
And here’re some testimonials –
“Your after-dinner speech, as well as being extremely funny, was very intelligent – pitched at just the right level for the event. Everyone is still talking about it. I could see a great deal of thought had gone into it and you helped make the night a great success. Thank you!’
Charles Morris, Head of Absolute Return, HSBC
“I just wanted to let you know that I keep hearing good things about your STA National Liberal Club after dinner talk from members, some of whom have asked me to obtain from you the talk in written form … You really made us laugh and put a lot of thought and effort into your speech which went down a treat with the members”
Axel Rudolph, Chairman of the Society of Technical Analysts
“It was a pleasure to have you on, I really enjoyed it. The background work and understanding of your audience was clearly evident in your excellent session.”
