After dinner speaking


With one of the best-known voices on Radio 4 and over thirty years of broadcasting behind him, Peter White is a highly entertaining and, when the occasion demands, thought-provoking after-dinner speaker. Much of Peter's humour and wealth of anecdotes stems from his experiences as a totally blind man, competing successfully in the very cut-and-thrust field of broadcasting. During his career Peter has been travelling around the world alone, with only his trusty white cane to help him (one of his funniest routines deals with the many reasons why he doesn't have a guide dog).

Peter has totally mastered the art of taking the cloying sympathy out of disability, so that his stories take a very robust view of it. Many of them deal with some of the dafter things the public do when confronted with disability, but an equal number are told against himself, and deal with what can go wrong when, as Peter puts it, "You try to play the blind card at the wrong time, to the wrong people". Much of Peter's material is gleaned from broadcasting and his contacts with the great, the good, and the not-so-good.

Peter has interviewed the last five prime ministers and most of the high-profile politicians of the past thirty years, show business stars such as The Two Ronnies, Caroline Ahearn and Jasper Carrott, and sportsmen like Sir Ian Botham and Kevin Keegan. They all rate a story or two.
