Captain William Wells, Master Mariner, a former ship’s captain and commercial marine pilot, with a career at sea lasting just short of 49 years.
Recognised as an international informative and entertaining “Topic-Expert” speaker, I was an active member of the Professional Speakers Association, Member of the International Federation of Public Speakers and a former Vice President of Toastmasters International. I have a wide ranging programme and speak regularly at conferences, seminars, after dinner and after lunch to a wide variety of different learned societies and organisations including the prestigious Bewdley Festival, BBC Radio, both local and national, as well as on board cruise ships. All with great passion, enthusiasm and authority.
Whilst aboard different cruise ships, I have shared the billings and stage with notables such as Lord Hunt, Tom O’Connor, John Humphrys and Sir David Frost
About my talks...
Speaking in my full Captain’s uniform, all my talks are delivered in an entertaining and informative way having proven successful for all audiences of all ages.
The majority of my lectures and presentations are supported by state-of-the-art digital power-point for which I supply everything needed with the exception of a screen or use of a blank wall and a table for my projector and laptop. All talks are informative, entertaining, humorous and given in a light hearted manner, suitable for both sexes and all ages.
If required, several of my talks can be delivered as a ‘stand alone’ presentation.
I charge from £150.00 plus travel at cost and overnight accommodation when necessary. This fee includes the provision of all my own state of the art digital AV equipment with the exception of a screen. The fee is often reduced by any sales of the 2nd edition of my published autobiography titled: A Sailor’s Tales for which signed copies retail at £10.00 and 20% of all sales are refunded to the client on the day.
