Cally is a one of the country’s most booked and experienced keynote and after-dinner speakers, awards hosts, MC’s and presenters within the corporate, education and charity sectors. As well as being one of the country’s top stand-up’s, Cally has worked in the television industry for over three decades (under her birth name Caroline Beaton). She has operated at board level in companies including ITV, MTV and ViacomCBS, and has also run her own award-winning creative agency. She still serves as a non-executive director and is a BAFTA voting member and popular media pundit. In short, she’s been around the block a few times and knows how to work a room!

Cally has produced and hosted many prestigious events, with regular bookings in the UK, Europe and the United States. She is highly-skilled and versatile and as safe (and funny!) a pair of hands as you will find.
