Speaker Bio

Paul Cooney joined Kiltwalk in 2015 as CEO to help drive the re-launch of Kiltwalk which had been rescued by philanthropist Sir Tom Hunter and The Hunter Foundation. In 6 years, Kiltwalk has raised nearly £27 million for over 2,000 charities and is now Scotland’s most powerful fundraising platform for Charities in Scotland. Every penny raised by fundraisers goes to the charity chosen by each individual walker – with a crucial twist. Sir Tom Hunter now adds 50% to all fundraising making the fundraising platform even more impactful on Scotland’s third sector. In fact The Hunter Foundation doubled all fundraising to 100% during this pandemic and we will hear how nothing stops the Kiltwalk. Paul is an award winning radio & TV broadcaster and former Managing Director in the key Scottish market for the UK’s two biggest radio groups Global and Bauer. But he says working with the totally dedicated team at Kiltwalk, the amazing Hunter Foundation and thousands of inspiring Scottish charities gives him the biggest buzz of all.
