JLA’s Speakers Breakfasts give event organisers and producers a free opportunity to see speakers in action before making a booking. Each year we host a Spring and Autumn season to showcase motivators, trends experts and business leaders – as well as the latest ‘movers and shakers’ and exciting new names to join the circuit.

He was previously Editor-in-Chief of the Financial Times, and the first non-economist appointed a full-time external member of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee. He was also the first person the new Chancellor telephoned when the election result become known.
