Ron Culley is a proud Glaswegian. During his forty years serving the public in the city he loves Ron was, for twenty-three of them, Chief Executive of three key organisations; the West of Scotland Transport Authority, Scottish Enterprise Glasgow and the award-winning Govan Initiative (where he was instrumental in establishing the Glasgow South Business Club).
Since retiring, Ron has confined his activities to travel journalism, public speaking and writing. Now a full-time author, he has had six books published. A seventh – ‘Alba; Who Killed Willie McRae?’ is scheduled to be published in the autumn. An eighth book, ‘Shoeshine Man’, a polemic on organised religion, is due for release in the spring of 2017.
Ron lives happily with his wife, Jean and family in Giffnock on Glasgow’s south side. His ‘Who’s Who’ entry shows his hobbies inter alia as ‘irreverence and laughing out loud’!
Eric Davidson is recognised as one of Scotland’s finest After Dinner Speakers, Comedians and Speech Writers. He was raised in that Cultural Cul De Sac, the Creme de la Skimmed Milk of all Scottish mining villages, Newtongrange. Even at the tender age of 11, Eric loved the stage. His Stylophone rendition of Chuck Berry’s ‘My Ding-A-Ling’ took the Newtongrange Church Opportunity Knocks competition by storm. In his teens he tried Ventriloquism, but ended up too heavy for the guy’s knee! Eric started writing and performing comic Poetry around the Clubs and Bars of Edinburgh and Glasgow.
In 2003 Eric started performing on the busy Scottish After – Dinner Circuit sharing Top Tables with major politicians, sporting greats and many TV personalities.
