An Interview With John Inverdale

9 May 2017

How did get into corporate speaking?

By accident. One request…did it…got asked again!

Which event has been your favourite and why?

I like any event that has a bit of originality about it. Far too many events are done by rote and it feels as though everyone present is just going through the motions. An event should be just that.

Why do you enjoy being a speaker?

The most enjoyable thing is meeting people from areas of life and society that I normally have little contact with. It invigorates you and the conversation can be sometimes very illuminating.

If you could speak at any event, past or future, what would it be?

I’d like to have MC’d Live Aid

Who would you most like to share a platform with?

Tommy Cooper. Sadly never to be….

What was your highlight of the last year either personally or in the sporting field?

Watching Andy Murray win Wimbledon.

Who has been the most memorable person you have interviewed or event you have been part of?

London 2012

What personal ambition must you fulfill before you die?

Owning a winner at the Cheltenham Festival and learn to play the guitar
