Ian Boardley

Ian Boardley or “BOARDLEY” as he is widely known, is an MC, host and accomplished charity auctioneer for corporate and charity events. An enthusiastic, lively, confident and most gentlemanly front man, he’s always at home whether it be on the catwalk of a fashion show, as the facilitator of a conference session, embracing the formality of an awards ceremony host, a quiz master, or as one of Scotland’s leading charity auctioneers. He always ensures that the pockets of the fund raising event guests, are emptied to the full to the benefit of each associated cause, and of course, in the most polite and courteous of manners. With over 30 years experience in the hospitality and events industry, Ian has worked with many charities and corporate organisations, delivering events both in Scotland and UK wide. Ian brings to your event his energy, enthusiasm, professionalism, positivity, meticulous attention to detail and his wealth of knowledge and experience of event management. He has the versatility to adapt his style by injecting a measure of humour, cheek and charm as appropriate to get the best response from your audience. Ian has also delivered international roadshows, promotions and events. He has commentated and  voice overed presentations for the corporate market and recorded introductions for award  ceremonies too. Ian’s loyal charity commitment is second to none, with regular and committed clients including:
  • HIT Scotland
  • The Lord Provost of Glasgow’s Burns Supper and Charity Lunch
  • Down Syndrome International (where he recently hosted the 2018 World Down Syndrome Congress SEC in Glasgow and their concluding Congress Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner)
  • Down Syndrome Scotland
  • Funding Neuro
  • Nil By Mouth
When he’s not generating funds on behalf of clients, he tirelessly gives of his time on a voluntary basis to support the needs of a number of organisations, both within his local village community and further afield. His personal fundraising efforts include: trekking through the jungles of Vietnam for the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice, yomping the Speyside Challenge, enduring the West Highland Way 24 hour run challenge and numerous other 10K events. A family man with two grown up daughters, he particularly enjoys the open countryside and Scotland’s great outdoors,  along with all of its associated pursuits.
