Steve Richards
Prime Ministers & Leadership

We expect a lot of our leaders – yet so often they turn out to have feet of clay. Author and BBC presenter Steve Richards will reflect on the lessons of leadership with reference to modern Prime Ministers from Harold Wilson to Boris Johnson, as well as taking the audience behind the scenes of the latest epic political dramas. Who were the best communicators? Who had most depth? Who were the weakest? The answers are surprising – and Richards will share them with his trademark humour and sparkle.
