Britain's Funniest Speaker, Presenter, and Facilitator


My name is James McGinty. I am a multi award winning speaker and have been involved in Public Speaking and training for over 25 years.  Having recently won the UK and Ireland Humorous Speaking Championship, I am now officially Britain’s funniest speaker.

My clients have include people from all walks of life from the sole trader, right up to senior managers and directors of some of the UK’s top companies.

I have coached individuals to give an expert elevator pitch, trained groups of managers to present to their workforce, helped politicians to hone their speeches and deliver them with power and presence.

I am currently based in the west of Scotland but can travel to any destination or provide remote assistance via phone Skype or email.
