Award-winning comedian, acclaimed on comedy stages and cruise ships, John is not just a laugh riot – he’s a mental health advocate. He’s so good at it; he even published a research paper on how comedy boosts mental wellbeing. Think of him as your go-to guy for events – whether you need a speaker, host, trainer, or presenter, John’s got the wit, charm, and a razor-sharp act to make any audience crack up! There’s never a dull moment when John’s on stage, and he’s not just thinking on his feet; he’s dancing on them!


Natasha Donovan The Patient Whisperer

She’s a Teaching Fellow, Clinical educator, Simulation specialist, Journalist, Broadcaster, and oh, did we mention she moonlights as a stand-up comic? Yes, you heard it right – she’s conquered both the medical world and the comedy stage, a combination not even a superhero would attempt.

Balancing kids, battling cancer, and delivering punchlines across the UK and Ireland – Natasha’s life reads like a gripping sitcom, but she’s not here for just laughs. Her upbeat, infectious smile is the secret weapon she deploys to drop hard-hitting health knowledge bombs. Imagine health talks with a side of stand-up – that’s Natasha’s unique recipe for engaging audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

Need a speaker for your conference or after-dinner event? Look no further. Natasha’s versatility and experience in the health service make her the ideal choice. But wait, there’s more – she writes and delivers bespoke performances like a comedy surgeon tailoring her act to the specific needs of her audience.

Happy clients? Natasha’s got them in spades. Whether she’s schooling healthcare pros on communication skills or cracking up a room full of business folks, she’s a hit. As part of the Cancer Research UK precision medicine team, she turns her experiences into tools for patient engagement – talk about a real-life superhero.

The NHS, Kings College London, Spire Healthcare, Willmott Dixon, Allied Bakeries, and Cancer Research UK all swear by Natasha’s expertise. She’s not just a speaker; she’s a communications consultant extraordinaire, advising health organizations on the finer points of clinical communication.

And if that wasn’t enough, Natasha gives back as a Trustee for the Bethnal Green Memorial and, in her former life, rocked the airwaves as a Radio Presenter at BFBS Colchester 107.0fm. Because when Natasha Donovan steps up to the mic, you’re not just getting a speaker – you’re getting a one-woman powerhouse of humor, empathy, and community spirit.

Dear Tasha, I attended your session yesterday and found it so beneficial to my every day working life.I have talked it over with my team and we are wondering if you would consider doing a bespoke session for the whole team. We have half day training days so could include all admin and clinical in the session. I believe it could really benefit the department as a whole.  Guys Hospital Trust


“I thought the session was really good. What I was looking for was a different way to communicate around mental wellbeing and stress as an awareness raising session.
