After joining the local young farmers club where he met Sylvia, Peter then went on to win several speaking competitions within the National Young Farmers Movement. His talent for making people laugh was immediately recognised and he was invited to be guest speaker at a local dinner, from there a speaking career was born.
Through word of mouth referrals and recommendations Peter has spoken to audiences from Stockton on Tess to Somerset, from village halls to The Great Hall at St John's College Cambridge.
His speech is unusual as it's suitable for all female, all male and mixed audiences alike.
With sharp observational humour and an ability to paint word pictures that bring the countryside and it's characters hilariously to life.
Peter has spoken to many luncheon clubs and Rotary Charter Dinners with other clients including Sheffield Law Society Annual Dinner, North Staffs RICS Annual Dinner and The British Equestrian Federation World Class Performers Dinner. He was also engaged by Tarmac to be guest speaker at a celebratory luncheon where HRH The Princess Royal was to officially open a new £150 million cement plant.
Although not a celebrity his ability to interest and entertain an audience may make him one of the best after dinner speaker you've never heard of.
