Clive Greenaway's entertainment careeer began in a rather unusual way.
After leaving the army at 21 when he became the youngest driving instructor in the UK, Clive gained the record for passing every vehicle driving test (from two - thirty two wheels) and ran one of the country's largest driving schools. The RAC, impressed with his teaching and training ability, hired Clive as one of their road safety experts, a role which involved giving talks to large audiences.
Clive greatly enjoyed this part of the job and began using his sense of humour to help get his points across in a lively and ... interesting way. (To see more visit our KEYNOTE SPEAKER PAGE).
His success as a trainer and speaker led to his participation in the BBC's 'Celebrity Driving School' Channel 4's 'Mad, Bad and Dangerous' and a powerful road safety documentary 'CRASH'.
Before long Clive was in great demand throughout the UK as an after-dinner speaker for corporate events (Rolls Royce, Nissan, BMW), business groups (Rotary Club, Round Table) and Golf and Country Clubs. He won regular spots on 'The Big Breakfast' and 'Stand-up Live' and after gaining his Equity card he also appeared in numerous TV shows ('East Enders', 'The Bill' and 'Only Fools and Horses').
As well as being a busy after-dinner speaker Clive is also a first class magician. He is a member of the world famous Magic Circle and in 2012 became the first member of the Wessex Magical Association to win the Stage, Close Up and Comedy awards in the same year. He is the UK's No.1 tribute to Tommy Cooper and presents his full length T.C. act, featuring classic Cooper gags and magic, at a wide range of shows and functions. His after-dinner speech on Tommy's life is slick, fast paced and brimming with anecdotes.
Clive is an award winning member of Toastmasters International and past president of his local Toastmasters club. He has run courses in public speaking at Bournemouth University and Poole College, has a Diploma in Performance Coaching and regularly coaches clients who have to make important speeches for social or professional purposes. He has also worked for the BBC's Hostile Environment training program, preparing reporters and cameramen for conflict zones around the world.
Clive holds two Guinness World Records for being the fastest ever comedian and magician. He runs corporate and group master classes in the art of good old-fashioned joke telling, construction and laughter yoga entitled Stand-up CLive both for team building and as a fast track to making you the life and soul of the party.

Everyone is always saying to me
We need our event, birthday, wedding, captains night to be very special, fantastic great fun and for our friends family and work colleagues, for them to be talking about this for the rest of the year and some more.
We want great photo opportunities, maybe audience participation
No one must be offended or to be made look a fool. This is not our idea of fun laughing at embarrassing moments at our family , friends and work mates.
So as you will see from my testimonials, they came to the right place... Can't wait to chat to you
