Former teacher and premiership league rugby player, John Simonett, is an accomplished professional and witty after dinner speaker. He is in huge demand as a thoroughly entertaining speaker who fully researches his audience, utilising his memory skills, to personalise his presentations and is always incredibly well received.
John Simonett is one of Britain’s most entertaining and original corporate speakers. As an after dinner speaker he is humorous, clean and topical with the ability to absorb a brief and make his performance relevant to each audience or to the theme of the event. As a bonus, he is able to complement his speech with clever and amusing magic, introduced as a complete surprise. His ability to incorporate this in his speech in a businesslike manner provides a unique and refreshingly different alternative to the traditional after dinner speaker. As a presenter, he can also make a business message more memorable with the use of relevant magic at events such as product launches, seminars and sales meetings.
“It was my pleasure to act as the Awards Dinner Chairman and to meet with John Simonett. With very little briefing from myself beforehand, John delivered an outstanding performance in many ways. He made us laugh, think, question, argue, reflect and smile – but most of all, he fully entertained all of us. Quite genuinely, I cannot remember any of our previous speakers creating so much positive comment over the following two days during the major show in which we were involved.” Chris Aylett, Chief Executive, Motorsport Industry Association
