According to the Inland Revenue Eric Davidson is one of the most sought after speakers and entertaining in the country.
Eric was raised in that cultural cul-de-sac, the creme de-la-skimmed milk of all Midlothian mining villages, Newtongrange. He now lives, not too far away, with his wife Jackie and two young daughters, in another Midlothian village, sunny Pathhead.
His early claim to fame is that in 1989 he scored a wonderful goal for Coldstream against Albion Rovers in the 2nd round of the Scottish Cup. He does admit, however, that in those days Albion Rovers were not the powerful force in Scottish Football that they are today!
Eric has won a number of high profile speaking awards. In 2005 he won the prestigious St Columba's Hospice charity Wits Dinner at Prestonfield House Hotel in Edinburgh. In 2006, he was victorious at the Edinburgh Wags Dinner held at the Roxburghe Hotel in aid of the charity, Epilepsy Scotland and in April 2007, he was victorious at the St Columba's Hospice charity, Wit of Wits Dinner, again held at the Prestonfield House Hotel.
Eric Davidson has spoken at numerous sporting and corporate dinners all over the UK. That year, he was the principal speaker at the high profile Scottish Football Writers' Dinner. In 2006, along with Sam Torrance, he was the guest speaker at the Scottish Professional Golf Association Lunch and he also entertained the guests at Celtic and Scotland legend, Tommy Burns' Testimonial Dinner.
Eric is also a Burns aficionado and enjoys speaking at Burns Suppers the length and breadth of the UK. He has spoken at some of Scotland's leading Burns events including, the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice, Scottish Alzheimer, Glasgow Rangers and the biggest and most respected in Scotland, the Bridgeton Burns Club in Glasgow.
Eric has been guest speaker at dinners including the Midlothian Council Sports Awards, The Scottish Cricket Awards, The Lisbon Lion's 40th Anniversary Lunch, Glasgow Rangers Sponsors Dinner and Danny McGrain's Testimonial Dinner.
Eric is also a regular performer at Edinburgh's Festival Fringe, where his one man show always sells out.
