About Michael Kerry White

I was born outside Cardiff in the UK but now live with my beautiful wife to the west of London in the Bucks countryside . For the final 30 years of my working life I was a highly successful International Sales Director and CEO travelling the world working in and visiting many diverse countries and cultures. It’s these adventures that make up my highly popular The Accidental Salesman talk. But in 2011 I decided to hand in my Frequent flyer cards and retire.

This didn’t last very long (my wife saw to that) and by a series of accidents and good fortune  I have become a multi-award winning character and comedic actor and author (Shooting for the Moon available on Amazon) now documented in – The Accidental Actor. I have appeared in over 70 films and TV productions e.g. Downton Abbey,50 Ways to Kill your lover,  Urban Hymn, Yours Accidentally and several other award winning shorts . I have also recorded an original soundtrack (Urban Hymn), recorded at Abbey Road and appeared in five stage productions in major character parts plus a prominent character role in the 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony.

Never having any firm destination in life has made it one happy accident after another and has proven what can be achieved if you are willing to grasp the opportunities.

My talks are humorous and informative and my style is very conversational and inclusive.

Michael is a natural presenter and his two Accidental talks were just great. Highly amusing and informative showing what a life he has led.

I related entirely to Michael's talks. He captured the madness and fun of it all in a self deprecating way that fails to hide how talented he is. My American friends loved it too.
