An Evening To Remember With Best After Dinner Speakers

What is an after dinner speaker? Well, he or she is a person who gives a speech or presentation after a formal meal or dinner, or similar event. These speakers entertain and engage the audience with humour, anecdotes, and interesting stories, rather than delivering a serious or technical message in corporate events.

After dinner speakers are often invited to events to provide a light-hearted and enjoyable end to the evening. Their speeches may cover a wide range of topics, from personal experiences to current events or cultural observations.

How after dinner speakers can add value to an event?

Speakers (award hosts and stand up comedians can act as entertaining after dinner speakers too) can add significant value to an event in several ways:


After dinner speakers are typically chosen for their ability to engage and entertain the audience. For example, an actor as an after-dinner speaker can add value to your event by sharing their personal experiences and providing insights into the entertainment industry.


A successful corporate speaker hired as an after-dinner speaker can share their expertise on business-related topics and provide insights into successful leadership and management strategies.


After dinner speakers can also educate the audience on specific topics or issues. For example, a scientist as an after-dinner speaker will discuss the latest developments in their field.

Here are some unique examples of best after dinner speakers adding value to an event:

A musician as an after-dinner speaker can add value to your event by sharing their insights and experiences in the music industry. They can also provide entertainment with live music performances.

A comedian as an after-dinner speaker can add value to your event by entertaining the audience with humour, jokes, and storytelling.

A famous author might be hired as an after-dinner speaker at a literary event to share their insights into the writing process and provide inspiration to aspiring writers. Imagine Gyles Brandreth as your host, your event would be unforgettable. 

An athlete might be hired as an after-dinner speaker at a sports awards ceremony to share their experiences on and off the field. Imagine an international rugby player as a rugby speaker bringing the world of Martin Bayfield to your event.

There are so many insightful anecdotes about the British Lions (Ireland and England International Rugby Team) and their adventures in rugby world cups. Football speakers or sports speakers in general are a great way of making your dinner party memorable. An evening with grand slams, you might call it. 

For instance, in this after dinner speaker video, Megan Rossi shares insights on how gut health can contribute to overall happiness and wellbeing.
