About Ian Maber

My name is Ian Maber.

After teaching for over 20 years and travelling the world, working with many high profile companies in technology and the entertainment industry for another 12 years, I have now decided to take an early retirement and relax a little more.

During my career I have been involved with some of the most well know names in entertainment and high end technology inc -Disney, Dreamworks, Sony, BBC. Apple, Microsoft and Intel.

I was the co-creator of a multi award winning software -nominated for a BAFTA.

Having worked in over 43 countries and lived in several including India, Canada and the U.S. I have always been interested in storytelling and presenting. I love to create worlds of imagination and take the audience on a journey, so they can become immersed in the story.

I have written several short stories, poems, novels and even a script (even thought that was hard work!) and currently working on a series of animated short stories for children. My life and times have featured in an article in my Local Press (Grantham Journal), on Gravity FM and I have been featured on the ‘Real Lives’ program on BBC radio.

2016 and 2017 have been very busy years, and 2018 looks like another hectic year, I even have bookings for 2019 now, so avoid disappointment please book early.


I have listened to a number of speakers throughout my career, many of whom were quite traditional, I felt that it would be very entertaining to take this whole concept and create a new exciting and entertaining format.

My presentations include animation, sound, humorous tales all designed to keep the audience captivated and laughing as they experience the world of The Teller of Tales.

Talk Topics are a combination of storytelling and old fashioned stand-up comedy. Each one is unique.

Many follow the exploits and adventures of an individual as he deals with life’s ups and downs, whilst others focus on a specific topics looking at the more humorous side of life.

All the presentations are ideal for old and young alike, and each comes with supporting visuals and special effects.

Quiz Topics are designed to provide fun, and entertainment, whilst getting the brain cells working! (ha ha) Each one focuses on a different topic, but all follow this uniquely developed style.

I'm sure you will be captivated, entertained and leave your event laughing all the way home.

Hope to see you soon.
