Brian Newbold Ex Coal Board, Conference Speaker and Entertaining After Dinner Speaker
Brian was born and bred in Doncaster and educated at De La Salle College, Sheffield. Upon telling the careers master that he had half a mind to work for the Coal Board he received the reply "That should be more than adequate."
During a life sentence as an engineer at British Coal, he developed a warped sense of humour and perfected the art of becoming invisible in the afternoon.
He is very well known on the circuit as "The Man from the Coal Board" and has entertained the full spectrum of organisations from The Royal Variety Club to The Institute of Funeral Directors!
He has shared the stage with Celebrities, Sportsmen, Sportswomen and Members of Parliament (ranging from Status Quo, to Sir Bobby Robson, to Austen Mitchell!), and as well as hundreds of Golf Clubs, Sportsman's Dinners, and Corporate Dinners, his work includes everything from Awards Ceremonies and Product Launches, to cabaret on Cruise Liners, to live commentary at Air Shows.
In his spare time Brian enjoys tinkering with cars and motorbikes and loves flying light aircraft, although he admits a near-fatal collision with power cables a few years ago did dampen his enthusiasm for a while!
His material is suitable for all occasions and he will personalise his speech to suit your needs.
Brian is a very popular and much sort after speaker
