Boris Johnson to ‘charge £30,000’ for after-dinner speeches just a month after announcing divorce
Posted on October 13, 2018

The former foreign secretary has joined an exclusive agency for celebrity speakers.

Boris Johnson will reportedly charge up to £30,000 per-speech after signing up to an exclusive celebrity agency, just over a month after announcing his divorce.

The former foreign secretary has offered his services to JLA – an agency that provides famous after-dinner speakers for corporate events.

Last month Johnson announced he’d be splitting from his wife of twenty-five years, Marina Wheeler, after rumours of infidelity.

In a joint statement, they said they would ‘continue to support our four children in the years ahead’.

Now, a speaker for JLA, Johnson will share the esteemed company of famous names such as Buzz Aldrin and Richard Branson, as well as fellow politicians John Prescott and David Miliband.

Described in his JLA profile as ‘one of the most captivating political speakers of his generation’, Johnson is expected to charge a £30,000 fee every appearance, in which he’d be required to make a 15 minute speech.
