GUEST SPEAKER

Peter Turner has been on the Guest Speaker and After Dinner speaker circuit since 2003. With over 2000 presentations under his belt, Peter has priceless experience to accommodate all kind of events.

Pete’s career as Speaker has taken him on an amazing journey. He has done many VIP events, plenty of Annual Chartre Evenings and countless small society meetings. Pete has also been invited to present his lectures by Cruise Liner companies, lecturing to the passengers all over the world.

About Pete

My Guest Speaker career started as I was on my daily runs at the tail end of my food business. One of my customers was a Speaker Secretary for Runcorn Probus. He explained to me that his speaker had let him down three days before the meeting. In a panic and a last minute gasp, he approached me to see if I could do a talk on magic, knowing I was into my hobby in a big way. I replied to him saying, “I’m an entertainer, not a guest speaker”, therefore I rejected his kind proposition. That night, this Speaker Secretary called me to say he was really desperate and tried to persuade me to come along and talk to his group. I really liked this gentleman and he was a good customer of mine. Even though I didn’t really want to do the talk, I felt that for PR reasons within my business, I had to help him out.

THE TOPIC

My lectures are quite different; I touch on the psychology and mind games of the unknown. Also as Professional Magician, I do have valuable and interesting knowledge how to trick and play on the mind on my punters to make magic real. This makes a fascinating programme which has become a massive hit and a great success.

All lectures are light hearted, humorous, absolutely fascinating, and informative.

Pete Turners lectures are ideal for all kinds of events. He can accommodate Annual Charter Evening, Presidents Black Tie Events, Rotaries, Round Tables, U3A’s, Probus, Women’s Institute, Luncheon Clubs, Christmas Events for your club, plus other church groups or private club meetings. Pete’s talks are idea for audience from 10 to 150 maximum.

If you haven’t booked Pete Turner before, he would recommend his first talk “Through the Eyes of a Magician” This lecture is a great introduction to the Art of Magic” All talks runs for an average of fifty five minutes. If your event requires an interval, Pete can adapt his lectures so it will be split into 2 x 40 min.

Genuine Feedback

Pete, you were awesome. You went above and beyond for us at our Wedding and all our guests were blown away.

CHRIS HALL (ITV Granada Reports Sports Presenter)

Pete did my daughter’s milestone birthday event proud; all my guests enjoyed his amazing magic

SHERRIE HEWSON (TV Personality/Loose Women)

Very slick – Top Magician

TED ROBBINS (TV Personality)

Pete Turner was great at our wedding. He took the pressure and the worry from us by looking after our guests with his amazing magic.

LIZ & JOHN NEWTON (Macclesfield)

Pete’s skills & professionalism really shone at our Wedding. He shows humour and charm in his delivery, making his magic more entertaining.

ELIZABETH PENNINGTON (Warrington)

I was amazed with Pete’s magic at our daughters wedding. What impressed me was the way Peter handled the heckling he received from our younger guests (after a few drinks). The way he turned it around, earned him the respect at the Wedding – very professional

MICHAELA EVANS (Manchester)

I’m not really into magic, but I was so glad my new husband persuaded me to have Pete as our Wedding Magician, because he was amazing. He brought that extra little spark into our Special Day which was well received. Our Guests loved him and did not want him to go home.

ENID SHAW – (St. Helens) Mother of the Bride

Thank you so much for entertaining us so superbly at Isobel & Allan’s wedding last week. Your contribution has been the talking point of the whole event and the Bride & Groom were especially pleased. I myself remain completely baffled by everything you did.

MICHELLE DEMPSEY – (Chester) – Wedding at Northrop Hall

Pete Turner is known as the Peoples Magician. His warm personality, his quick wit and his amazing magic have given Pete a good reputation, making him a popular choice when hiring a magician.

TRISHA KING (Wirral) – Mother of the Bride

I can see why Pete gets called The Peoples Magician, he fitted into our Wedding as if was one of the Guests. He kept low key, and entertained our guests without getting in the way. As for his magic – I’ve never seen anything like it! – Truly Amazing – well recommended

TONY LISTER (West Midland)

I was that annoying women who trying to give you a hard time at our Tony’s wedding.

I’m not really into magic; but you had me, dam you. My ‘husband to be’ wants you at our wedding. After seeing you at my brother’s wedding, he has my approval to get in touch with you. Hope you’re free.

ALISON LISTER (sister of Tony Lister)

I’ve booked Pete for five talks at our Probus and he has never let us down. Each talk has a different outlook on the same theme. We have booked Pete again for his sixth talk next year.

Ray Howarth (Urmston Probus)

Amazing Speaker. We have booked Pete on four occasions and our ladies have really enjoyed his lectures.

Pauline Kennerly (Heatly WI)

Absolutely brilliant. Our ladies were amazed with Pete’s talk. I recommend this speaker at your event.

Christina Thompson (Speakers Secretary of the Poynton Methodist Church Ladies Fellowship)

Pete joined our cruise in Australia for our long voyage over the Indian Ocean to South Africa, so we knew it was going to be tough to keep our passengers occupied. Pete never let us down. He did ten lectures. Each was well attended. We even used Pete as a pre dinner entertainment, which filled our lounge. Great speaker, I would like to put forward Peter for the Baltic Cruise in May.

Julie (Cruise Director from Travelscope) Around the World Cruise 2008

Thank you very much for your great lectures. It was different and you have had great feedback from my passengers.

Richard Sykes (Cruise Director of the Marco Polo, St Petersburg Cruise)

Thank you for an amazing presentation, some of my members called me the next day to say how much they enjoyed your talk.

Ruth Seed (Speaker Secretary Waddington WI)

Thank you very much for your most interesting talk/demonstration given to Deva Probus on Tuesday last. The measure of an excellent talk in our age group, after a good lunch, always has been “how many were awake” The fact was they all were awake.

Ronald Meakins (Chairman of The Deaver Probus Club)

Pat Fletcher (Speaker Secretary Church Minshull WI)

Pat Fletcher (Speaker Secretary Church Minshull WI)

Many thanks for your talk & demonstration last Monday. The response from members was excellent and on that basis, I would like to book you for next year.

Derek Howell (Weaver Probus)

There is no doubt that your “gestures” (all right ones – no naughty ones) had eye contact, use of humour, audience rapport, good use of vobabulary and word pictures with pitch, pause and pace and you will be pleased “you passed the assignment with flying colours – and we shall all look forward to seeing you on your next presentation.”

Betty Longmate (Lockstock Ladies Group, Bolton & Guest Speaker of the Bolton Ladies Speakers Club)

Thank you so much for your interesting talk with the Ladies Probus last month. It was much appreciated by all and we are still talking about it.

Stella Miller (Prestbury Ladies Probus, Nr Macclesfield)

Thank you for an amazing talk yesterday despite the difficult road conditions. Members who did not turn up due to bad weather have regretted not coming to our meeting after hearing about your talk from other members. Sorry for the low numbers, but all of us really enjoyed your talk. Well done.

Pete Crawford (41 Club)

Many thanks for talking to our club, everyone really enjoyed it.

Malcolm Clark (Heard Green Probus)
