Bill Copeland has been a regular performer on the after-dinner speaking circuit for many years, building up an unrivalled portfolio of experience in handling the entire range of speaking assignments.
He has travelled the length and breadth of the country from Wick to the Channel Islands – and even ventured out into the North Sea to the oil rigs off Norway!.
From corporate events for leading government bodies to major national and multi-national businesses, professional bodies and trade associations; sporting dinners for football clubs, major and minor; rugby dinners, posh and proletarian; golf club prize givings, annual dinners and days out, prestigious and humble; Burns Nights and Rotary Clubs – all have warmed to the unique brand of Copeland humour.
