A warm, funny and hugely successful business leader, Caroline Beaton has spent over 25 years working in high profile roles in the international media - most recently as Senior Vice President, Viacom International Media Networks. An in-demand MC and after dinner speaker, Caroline knows how to work a room - drawing on her gloriously unorthodox, double-life as a business leader and stand-up comedian, she is able to strike the perfect balance to deliver a smart, bespoke, and entertaining curation of events.

A warm, funny and hugely successful business leader, Caroline Beaton has spent over 25 years working in high profile roles in the international media - most recently as Senior Vice President, Viacom International Media Networks, and notably as the youngest ever board member at Carlton Television in the early 00’s.

An in-demand MC and after dinner speaker, Caroline knows how to work a room, having operated at senior management level in companies including ITV, MTV, UKTV and Comedy Central. She also founded Road Trip Media in 2004, as well as being a BAFTA voting member and holding a seat on the Development Board of MTV’s Staying Alive Foundation.

A naturally gifted speaker with rare insight and an utterly distinctive voice, Caroline has worked with – to name a few – Deutsche Bank, AFAR Media, Oxfam, The PA Club, Autistica and UCL.

By day, Caroline continues to head up a global business for Viacom International Media Networks, but by night, under the stage name Cally Beaton, she takes her intelligent and subversive material as a highly successful stand-up and MC to comedy venues in the UK and abroad. She has generated plenty of noise as a rising comedian on the US circuit, and regularly gigs in Amsterdam, where she lives part-time and is bilingual in Dutch/English.

Her debut solo show, Super Cally Fragile Lipstick, was a sell-out hit at Edinburgh in 2017, receiving 4**** reviews, and her radio and television appearances include BBC Radio 4, BBC London and Radio 6 Music. Her first episode of QI on BBC2 is due for transmission in January 2018.

Drawing on her gloriously unorthodox, double-life as a business leader and stand-up comedian, Caroline is able to strike the perfect balance between professionalism and comedy, and can be relied on to deliver smart, bespoke, funny curation of even the most challenging events.
