Raconteurs

As “Britain’s largest after dinner speaking agency” (Daily Telegraph), JLA provide raconteurs as well as business speakers, presenters and performers for over 2,000 corporate and industry events each year. Raconteurs are natural after dinner speakers. Wherever they picked them up along the way, they revel in sharing their stories with strangers. They talk from personal experience, reveal secrets about people and places we thought we were familiar with – and invite us to join in the joke.

On this page you will find travellers and writers, diplomats and explorers, sportspeople, interviewers and one very outspoken member of the medical profession. But they all have at least one thing in common: they are all wonderful storytellers. They capture our imagination and take us on a journey – which often involves narrowly avoiding disaster of one kind or another.

Whether you are looking to entertain clients or colleagues, fellow members or industry peers, a well-chosen raconteur will help transform it from just another gathering to one that will linger in the memory. JLA work with dozens of FTSE-100 firms, major name brands, professional associations, publishers and production companies. We will help you find the right speaker for your audience – our reputation rests on it.
