About Ashley Boroda
Ashley Boroda started developing leadership and public speaking skills at the tender age of fifteen, while part of a peer led youth organisation. After being selected to further his training in the United States, at sixteen, he spent three years enhancing and passing on his knowledge to the next generation of leaders. One of the many people he coached in leadership and public speaking is now the co-chair of a well known British political party. In recent times Ashley has merged his desire to help people speak in public with flair and confidence with his area of expertise, stand-up comedy.
Since 2006, Ashley has been running courses in several arenas including Legal firms, Accountancy firms, PR firms, firms of architects, health companies, research companies, banks, independent financial advisors, recruitment companies, Cultural Regeneration in East and South Manchester, the Junior Chamber of Commerce, theatre companies, a youth project in Moss Side, charities, adult education conferences, and schools and one to one sessions for management trainers, radio presenters and even for a famous playwright.
2005 saw the launch of Ashley Boroda Entertainment a boutique style comedy management company representing comedy performers and comedy writers, most of who are based in the North. In addition to personal management, ABE produces live comedy events and promotes shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Ashley has played a part in the entertainment industry since starting out as an assistant theatrical agent in 1990. Progressing to having his own list, he decided to turn his back on the agency in 1995 as his desire to launch new untapped comedy talent was not shared by his paymasters or the television and radio industry as a whole. Quite rightly, who would want to work with the likes of Jon Culshaw, Mel and Sue and Rob Brydon? That lot will never amount to anything!
Ashley then moved into radio production, comedy writing, stand-up comedy, television and then back to representing exciting new talent with the establishment of Ashley Boroda Entertainment in 2005.
