Graham Bell is most known for being the former host of the long-running and extremely successful television series POLICE TEN 7.
Formerly Detective Inspector in charge of Criminal Investigations for the Bay of Plenty Police District. With over 33 years in the NZ Police, most of it involved in investigating serious crime, Graham is one of New Zealand's most experienced and successful detectives. Widely recognised as an expert in homicide investigations, he has also shown a flair and talent for getting his message across in the media.
Graham has also led and conducted major inquiries into a range of criminal offending from art theft to rapes, complex fraud and drug trafficking. Graham has achieved a reputation for straight talking and backing words with action.
Since changing his career from the police to television presenter in 2002 Graham has also become recognised as a highly entertaining speaker with a seemingly endless store of unique and fascinating stories with a strong accent on humour. He is also well equipped to pass on, and educate with, his media skills and experience.
In 2001 Graham was awarded the Queen's Service Medal in the Birthday Honours List and was named as one of 15 New Zealanders who had 'made a difference' in North and South Magazine's New Zealander of the Year issue.
Graham is an amusing and entertaining speaker, MC and facilitator. He has been used in this role at corporate functions and gatherings of all types. He is also a sought after adviser on how to deal with the media, presenting, crime and a host of other issues. His style often comes as a pleasant surprise to those who have only seen him in his police or television roles.
Graham's unique experiences and razor sharp wit make him one of the funniest and most entertaining speakers available.
Graham was both informative and humorous with his content being both relevant and educational to both Animal Control Officers and Managers from the different Councils that were represented. ... keep reading NZ Institute of Animal Control Officers
Graham’s storytelling and relating to our theme was great. Excellent way to finish day one of our event.
Graham was on point at all times and his stories were very appropriate and fun. I would definitely recommend Graham to anyone who would like to listen to a humorous/entertaining speech where lessons can be learned from.
