Corporate Events Host and Speaker
I am also booked regularly for corporate events, after-dinners, sports clubs, black tie balls and celebratory parties. Recent work has included Montrose Roselea JFC Ladies Dinner, Inverness Caledonia Thistle F.C. Annual Ball, Watson Collage Rugby Club Dinner, Scottish Licence Trade Association Ladies Luncheon.
I have hosted football dinners, end-of-season balls, ceilidhs, street parties, Burns Suppers, weddings, dinner parties, wine-tasting events, corporate-marketing events, written and performed personalized sets for private birthday parties, spoken at office parties, Christmas parties, hotel and restaurant launch parties and produced, organized and hosted cozy comedy-club-style events in some very exclusive private living rooms.
“With Keara’s background she was the ideal host for our unique community event. She understood completely what the event was about. She was generous with her time, making sure she spoke with all the 21 community groups we had involved and I’m sure she spoke to nearly every single one of the 300 people who were here on the day! Her approach was just what we were looking for, she brought humour, warmth and her own personal insight that reflected the broader aims of the national festival (Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film Festival) that Headspace was a part of. Thank you Keara!”
Platform To Health
Here are just a few more of the events I have covered in the past few years…
Below, interviewing The Valley Girl “The Ellen DeGeneres of the Business World” at The George Hotel, Edinburgh for WeDo Scotland’s Spotlight Dinner. I got her to eat a Deep Fried Mars Bar whilst also asking her some difficult questions…
“Keara interviewed Jesse Draper – actress, entrepreneur and heiress to the Draper Venture Capitalist Dynasty - for our Spotlight Dinner and asked her the questions we were too afraid to ask. It was hilariously entertaining, informative and funny. A good mix of business and pleasure was had by all.”
Belinda Roberts, WeDo Scotland.
Speaking at The Friday Fix where, on the last Friday of every month, comedians entertain office workers at tea time to loosen off those corporate shackles and ease them gently into the weekend.
“I had the pleasure of working with Keara at the Edinburgh Twestival event last year, which she hosted. I had seen her perform live on stage before but the way she entertained the rowdy and often disparate crowd was very impressive – particularly as she was often needed on two stages at once. No mean feat – for even the most gifted professional – but this funny lady managed it with aplomb; reeling off one-liners on the hoof. As well as the live performance Keara made her international debut via the live stream, which connected all the Twestival events around the world in a Eurovision-style feed.
Let’s just say: it’s just as well Wogan stepped down otherwise he’d be looking out for his job next year!”
“Keara is a versatile performer and perfect for a mixed crowd. Her enthusiasm and professionalism added that special magic.
She’s certainly got it!”
She’s Gottit Events
“I have booked Keara many times over the years for a variety of events and she never disappoints. She has done Burns Night for me on many, many occasions and she always brings a warmth and enthusiasm with her, along with a deep and passionate knowledge for Robert Burns. Keara’s Response on Behalf of the Lassies is informative, funny, cheeky and above all loyal to TheBard. She also does a mean Address to the Haggis making it well understood and very funny with added mime and gesture for those of us not as adept at Scots as Keara.
One of the finest addresses I have ever seen”
Scottish Licence Trade Association
“I have had the pleasure of working with Keara on many occasions. She is a very funny, engaging and experienced comedian who can raise an electric atmosphere with virtually every audience. Keara is a polished, versatile performer and a fun woman to have around.
A Femme Extraordinaire!”
Henricks Bar, Edinburgh
