After Dinner Speaking

Bill Callaghan is a consummate raconteur and highly in demand as an after-dinner speaker. Video footage filmed by a member of the public during one of his tours at The Tower went viral on the internet and has now racked up over 2 million hits on YouTube!

Told in Bill Callaghan's inimitable style, his after-dinner speech – History is Not What it Was – is a hilarious and unique take on history, based around his role as one of HM The Queen's Yeoman Warders, including fascinating insights about its famous, and infamous, inhabitants such as Henry VIII and William Wallace – as depicted in Mel Gibson’s Braveheart movie.

Where possible, Bill will often try and weave in anecdotes and stories related to the industry, audience or event, but be warned, nobody is safe from the former Sergeant Major's wit; Bill jovially lambasts everyone including the elderly, Scottish, Royal Marines and the French. So whether you’re a bit of a history buff, or can’t stand thinking about the past, Bill Callaghan will have you crying with laughter!

Update: Bill is no longer available for public speaking, but for other fantastic after-dinner speakers, contact his former agent, speaker bureau NMP Live
