A hugely engaging storyteller and award-winning speaker, Neil Hanson has entertained audiences at every type of occasion – corporate events, conferences, social clubs, festivals, luncheon clubs, dinners and banquets – throughout the UK and right across the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
Neil is also a successful author with 70 published books to his name. As well as his own, much-acclaimed work, he is a “ghost writer” whose clients include household names – an American showbiz legend, England’s most famous cricketer, a celebrated actor, one of Britain’s most decorated soldiers and an England football manager – but also many less celebrated men and women who have led extraordinary lives or achieved remarkable things. Among many others, they include SAS men, fast-jet pilots, explorers and adventurers, a treasure diver, a kidnap negotiator, a leading businessman, a spy, a notorious gangster, a professional forager, a leading surgeon and a spy. He has also written two humorous books, “Inn at the Top” and “Pigs Might Fly”, about his time as landlord of Britain’s highest inn, in a remote corner of the Yorkshire Dales.
