Graham Davies is a much-vaunted Keynote speaker, Conference Facilitator and After-dinner Speaker, not to mention one of the UK's leading Presentation Coaches. Whether on stage or on TV, Graham's success as a speaker is built on an innate ability to juxtapose a serious message with down-to-earth entertainment, expertly mixing sharply topical comedy with insightful content tailored for the business needs of a wide variety of audiences. His success can be judged by the impressive list of clients he has both entertained and imparted knowledge to, which includes Ford, IBM, Tesco, Unilever, UBS, Porsche, ICI, Vodafone and KPMG. He is also regularly seen on TV, though appearances on Sky News, CNN and the BBC.
Graham is a veteran of more than 2000 after dinner speeches, dating back to his time as President of the Cambridge Union. He has developed his own inimitable speaking style which combines corporate finesse with sharp topical wit and has been described by the Mail on Sunday as “one of the funniest people in the UK”.
Graham uses his experience as a barrister in working to a brief about his audience, to ensure his speeches are precisely tailored to the occasion. Graham's breadth of material, combined with his ability to customise, has given him a reputation for being corporately sensitive as well as extremely funny
