John W Morgan
Business Career
John started in advertising in 1964 as an office boy and then trained as a commercial artist.Having noticed that there weren't too many old commercial artists around, he decided to move on to the account management side of advertising where he has been ever since.
In a perfect example of being in the right place at the right time, he became Managing Director of his first advertising agency at the age of 23. even years later he joined Woolward Royds - then Scotland's largest advertising agency - as Managing Director of their Glasgow agency. n 1980 he started his own Agency, Morgan Associates, which was later to become The Morgan Partnership.
That business failed in 2001 when it lost its biggest account, Hilton, at which point John remortgaged and started again. The new agency, merle (named after the old Scots word for Blackbird) now handles brand and communications for a diverse range of clients including Highland Spring, Robert Wiseman Dairies, Arran Aromatics, RBS, Tyreplus (part of the Kwik-Fit Group), The Whisky Shop and Tunnock's.
merle also created the brand strategy which helped build Dobbies to the UK's foremost Garden Centre chain only for that business to change its agency at the start of this year, proving, once again, that nothing in life is guaranteed.
John served on the Board of Scottish Enterprise, ForthValleyfor five years and is a Founder member and ex Vice Chairman of theEntrepreneurial Exchange.
...

John W Morgan John Morgan was born in Glasgow in 1946. When he was three, the family moved to Greenock where he was educated at Greenock Academy. In the year he finished school the Morgans moved to Bridge of Allan, where he has lived ever since.
He describes the process as "Glasgow born, Greenock bred, Bridge of Allan refined!"
John is married to Morag and has two grown up daughters - Megan and Erika. He enjoys writing, watching football, going to movies, speaking and studying the life and works of Robert Burns.
He and Morag own an internet company selling chess sets, paintings and gifts. He has served on the Board of Scottish Enterprise, Forth Valley and is also a Board member of the Entrepreneurial Exchange.
Clubs/Sports Dinners etc.
John has rapidly built his reputation as one of the most entertaining speakers on the after-dinner circuit, using a wide variety of oratory and writing skills to suit almost any occasion and audience.
He is utterly adaptable and while his humour is suitable for even the most delicate of mixed audiences, he is equally at home with a more "adult" content, suitable for predominantly male-only events.
Business Speaking
John has spoken at and chaired many business dinners and events. He regularly presents award ceremonies for local enterprise companies and other business organisations.
...
John has a particular passion for the works and life of Scotland's bard. He chairs a number of Burns Clubs and Suppers annually and can deliver The Immortal Memory and Toast to the Lassies. He also has an impressive repertoire of Burns recitations including:
The Address to the Haggis which he can precede with his own "Glesga" version
...
John appears and talks as the Colonel supported by a CV carefully written to have empathy with the event profile. He invariably arrives, mixes with the top table guests, speaks and leaves without ever once lifting the veil of the Colonel.
PS: The Colonel also does Burns Suppers!
