Blackadders Breakfast Club with Fred MacAulay

Posted: 31st January 2020

Who is it aimed at?
Business Owners, Managers and Professionals​

Host: Blackadders Employment Law Partner Donna Reynolds

Guest Speaker: Fred MacAulay
Having presented the very funny and eventful MacAulay and Co. on BBC Radio Scotland for almost 18 years and with a string of tv appearances, Fred’s on air witticisms and on screen reputation are the product of years of experience on the live circuit, including a stint as the first ever-Scottish compere at the Comedy Store in London.

Arriving late to the world of stand-up comedy in the early 90’s, he has gone on to be a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe and at comedy festivals worldwide. Appearances on many Radio 4 comedy panel shows including I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue, Just A Minute, The Unbelievable Truth and The News Quiz guarantee an audience for Fred’s Live stand-up tours.

He has successfully featured in and presented many programmes for BBC Scotland: he hosted the talk show McCoist and MacAulay and presented Life According to Fred, Hoots, Simply Fred and Scots on the Box, as well as the 2014 On The Road magazine programme with Martell Maxwell.

On national BBC Television he has been a panelist on shows including Mock the Week, QI and Have I Got News For You. In addition, in the US he was a guest on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and his performance at The Montreal Comedy Festival has been shown coast to coast in North America as well.

What will we cover?

  • Fred will speak about change, both those that come with good fortune and expand your choices and options in a positive way and those that are forced upon us that takes us out of our comfort zone.
  • How do we deal with change and its impact, and what can Business leaders learn from Fred’s experiences?
  • Q&A with Fred
