About Alex

Alex is one of the UK’s leading Events Host, After Dinner Speakers & Charity Auctioneers. Alex was dragged up on a hill farm at Clydebank where the only career choices were shipbuilding or shoplifting so he ran away to be a livestock auctioneer and land buyer. Alex now lives near Helensburgh and runs a holiday cottage and property business. Now that he has moved into property, he claims he is financially secure for the rest of his life, providing he dies next Thursday!

Since 2000, Alex has performed at events all over the UK and abroad, including Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Marbella. He is number one choice for Manchester United & Sir Alex Ferguson and his associated charities.
