Graham Davies has become one of the UK's leading experts in the field of interpersonal communication. After reading Law at Cambridge he was called to the Bar in 1986. He has combined the life of a barrister at the criminal bar with that of a Corporate Presenter.
Today, Graham's activities are centred on Link Presenting, Keynote Speaking, Presentation Coaching, After Dinner Speaking and Awards Presentation.
Working at approximately 100 events a year in front of a variety of audiences, Graham has developed his own distinctive speaking style, which is the key to his popularity.
His success is due to an ability to be the right person, saying the right thing, at the right time. Accomplished at taking a brief, he skilfully utilises background information about the company, and more importantly the audience, to ensure his speeches are precisely tailored to the occasion.
Graham can offer two additional features. If appropriate (and only then) he is particularly adept at targeting humour at personalities within an organisation. He is also a past-master of the art of the "wind-up". Adopting a persona to fool the audience for the first five minutes, Graham gives a serious, yet controversial presentation. Incredulity dissolves into laughter as the audience realise they have been "had".
Graham's presentational skills have taken him as far as Hawaii and New Delhi and he is an active member of the National Speakers Association in the United States. After Dinner speaking is the high-wire act of presentation. Celebrity status is not enough to guarantee success after dinner. In this environment, experience is everything.
Corporate dinners need to end on a high note. Graham can deliver a professionally hilarious conclusion.
Don't forget if you are thinking of booking a Speaker for your event we can also help with Awards Presenters, Comedians,after dinner Cabaret, fabulous Party Bands or Tributes, DJs, Close up Magicians, amazing Lookalikes for Meet and Greet, Circus Acts and many different types of Themed Entertainment plus much, much more.
Thank you so much for everything that you did to help us with the launch. Everyone I have met hugely enjoyed your talk - you were brilliant! I was particularly grateful that you spared the time to watch the presentation in the afternoon and used it so marvellously in the evening. I was not only impressed with Graham's ability to transform and translate pieces of 'localised' information into very humorous material, but also how he managed to keep an entire international audience amused for over fifty minutes! He tackled a variety of topics in a highly-amusing, constructive and very professional manner. "...You were a fundamental part of making the Euro Beacon Awards Dinner a great success. You had the senior management of Lotus (US and EMEA) crying with laughter. You delivered delightfully, to a brief, in front of a world-wide audience".

Graham's brief was to help break down barriers amongst our team and engender team morale and spirit. The positive feedback from the entire audience showed that Graham's performance had really achieved this.

I am delighted that you were able to personalise the event, for both my staff and my customers with such a limited briefing. Once again many, many thanks for your significant contribution in making the event the success that it was. John McGrath, Managing Director

Our clients were unanimous in congratulating you for a perfect end to a very busy and somewhat tense day. My concern about 'after dinner speaking' for such a small audience of only 40 clients was rapidly overshadowed by the way you kept your audience enthralled. You obviously had done some homework to get a good understanding of your audience and your informed comments and sense of humour was perfect entertainment.

St James's Place Group
The feedback from the delegates has been universally excellent and I think you could see from the reaction in the bar afterwards your performance had gone down very well with your audience! John Newman, Group Sales Director
