Amusing after-dinner, corporate or club speaker

After grammar school in Lincoln and an English degree at Manchester University, Graham quickly realised retail management (with C&A) was not for him and he became a trainee teaboy/journalist with the Lincolnshire Standard Group, later moving on to be TV/Showbiz editor on the Northants Evening Telegraph. After seven years on the ET he took on a similar role on the Northern Echo and moved from there two years later to work in Fleet Street, supplying celebrity interviews and TV previews to 10 regional daily papers from the London offices of Westminster Press.

Two years after that he went freelance and went on to write about TV for both regional and national newspapers and magazines including The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, the Daily Record (Scotland), the TV magazines of The Sun, The Mirror and the Express, plus TV Choice, TV Times, TV Quick and women's magazines Best and My Weekly.

Graham's urge to generate laughter started early. He compered revue shows at school and university, went on to host charity fund-raisers, entered talent shows and even auditioned as a stand-up comedian for Opportunity Knocks. He used that talent to amuse to embark on a second career as a speaker in 2006 and has since entertained around 300 audiences with his three talks, including Rotary Charter Nights and regional Rotary conferences, ladies' luncheon clubs, corporate events, WI gatherings, U3As and Probus clubs. His website includes many glowing testimonials describing his talks here:
