With decades of first-hand encounters and personal dealings, John will explore the enigmatic personas of global figures such as Putin, Xi Jinping, bin Laden and Thatcher. He will navigate the intricate web of international relations, delving into the complexities of our global issues – from conflicts, war and famines to world economies and climate change.

What links Mandela and Princess Diana? Or Zelenskiy and Mugabe? John will reveal the common threads linking these figures and offer a unique perspective on the impact they’ve had on world affairs.

For this special London event at Cadogan Hall, John will be joined by a special guest to mark his 80th birthday and celebrate his almost unparalleled career in journalism.

As a household name who has covered almost every major event in the world from the 1960s to the present day, you will have an opportunity to ask John your questions – what were these leaders and lunatics really like, and what on earth is going on? Don’t miss John for an evening that promises to entertain, enlighten, and inspire with his fearless journalism and captivating storytelling.
