About the Author:

Clark McGinn was born in Ayr and has been the speaker at Burns Suppers for thirty years. He has led the revelry at Suppers across Britain, Europe and the States, usually with a dram of whisky in hand. While at Glasgow University he founded the World Student Debating Competition and passed enough exams to become a banker, where his skills at arguing came in handy. His speeches have been shown on TV in Britain, America, Canada and Australia.
