Though he is best known for his antics on Made in Chelsea, there is more to Francis Boulle than simply reality television. This TV star is also a world-renowned entrepreneur, whose contributions to the development of sustainable energy and mineral sectors on an international scale, makes him a valuable after-dinner speaker. Due to his multifaceted nature, Francis is suitable for a wide range of events, from industry conferences on renewable advancements to after-dinner events and charity fundraisers.
When the production company Monkey Kingdom approached Francis in 2009, his life changed forever. They pitched to him a show similar to The Hills, a US reality show, which offered an insight into West London’s budding young people who aspired for greatness. Their pilot episode was a hit, with viewers eager to follow the turbulent business ventures and dramatic lives of socialites on the reality show.
Francis also has an interest in politics, or more importantly, making politics more accessible to the everyday person. With the hopes of sparking interest in current affairs, he created a comedy website that allowed users to rate MP’s attractiveness. The site intended to lift the veil on Westminster and encourage younger participation in politics. The site was a success and even had to be banned from within the Houses of Parliament due to the interest. Despite this, there were still 431,897 failed attempts to access the site by MPs in Parliament, in just one year. Though the website is no longer available, its witty humour and playful nature helped people to understand which MPs stood for their constituency, putting a face to the name they may have previously looked over.
What makes Francis so charming on stage is simple – his tongue in cheek approach to such topics as wealth, politics and business development, evident in his book, Boulle’s Jewels: The Business of Life. Rather than shying away from his privileged upbringing, Francis is bridging the class gap through reality show entertainment and candid accounts of the highs and lows to entrepreneurship. He is a likeable, personable speaker, mostly in part to his selfless presenting style and honest reflection on his life as a businessman.
