Garry Richardson has been a broadcaster for the BBC for over 30 years. He is best known as the sports presenter on Radio Four's prestigious Today programme. He also presents Sportsweek on Five Live every Sunday morning and is a regular contributor on BBC Television. He has reported on Five Olympics for the BBC.

Garry's big love is performing on the after dinner circuit. His speech is a rich mixture of stories and anecdotes about his life in broadcasting including his incredible interview with President Bill Clinton in Wimbledon's Royal Box, in front of 18,000 tennis fans sitting under umbrellas and 10 million viewers on BBC 1. Down the years he has interviewed a galaxy of stars and his stories about his broadcasting life has made him a hugely popular speaker.

During the past 20 years Garry has performed to a wide range of clients on the after dinner circuit. Garry believes that his popularity as a speaker is down to his routine. As he say's "All audiences will contain sports fans and even if you are not a sports fan my stories are so general it doesn't matter". This point is underlined by an appearance for the National School Bu rsars Association where 80% of the audience out of 250 were women. The organisation were so delighted with Garry's performance they booked him for their national event. It's at the corporate business dinners where Garry has proved to be an outstanding success. He has been booked on no less than 9 times by the Institute of Directors. Garry also works regularly for Coutts Bank entertaining prospective new Clients in the Directors'dining room.
