Some fantastic news!
Penny Smith, the charismatic and sometimes controversial presenter of GMTV's Breakfast Show, has agreed to be our Principal Speaker at this year's Livery Autumn Dinner to be held on the evening of Wednesday, 15 September.
Penny has been a journalist for over 30 years but she shot to fame as a newsreader for Sky News before 17 years as a presenter for GMTV. Voted in the top 100 sexiest women in the world, Penny is well known as a lively and amusing speaker with strong views on the British media industry. Since leaving GMTV earlier this month, Penny continues to write for national newspapers and magazines and she is working on her third novel.
I am really pleased that we have found a high-profile and exciting speaker for our dinner this autumn and I am desperately keen to make sure that we have a capacity audience to hear her. Please book places for yourself, your spouse and your friends now. We can't get more than 210 into the Hall and, as this is bound to be a wonderful evening, I wouldn't want you to be disappointed.
