Barry Williams

It was in 1984 that Barry’s natural ability as a raconteur was spotted by a group of business men who in turn persuaded him to turn his hand to after dinner entertainment. His speeches with a mixture of stories, both fictional and true, include many humorous recollections from his days on the road, together with trips to the Falklands, Central America and nearer to home entertaining the armed forces.
