Business Breakfast with ICC CEO David Richardson

July 5th

The London Sporting Club is proud to present the first in a regular series of intimate business breakfasts with leaders in world sport. First up is David Richardson, the Chief Executive Officer of the International Cricket Council, the most senior figure in world cricket. David, who represented South Africa as a wicketkeeper-batsman in 42 tests and 122 One Day Internationals, graduated from Port Elizabeth University and, later, the London School of Business. A qualifed lawyer he became the ICC's first General Manager in 2002 and its fourth CEO in 2012. During a busy summer of cricket in England - with the ICC Champions Trophy, the Women's World Cup and a test series against South Africa all to squeeze in - who better to talk to over breakfast than a man steering one of the biggest sports in the world at a time of much change and evolution?

Lunch with David Coulthard

July 11th

In the week of the British Grand Prix who better to meet and be entertained by than David Coulthard, the winner of 13 Formula One Grands Prix including the British Grand Prix twice, 535 points and achieved 62 podiums in a 15-year career in F1 that saw him race for Williams, McLaren and Red Bull against all the greats of the 1990’s and Noughties? DC is now a popular commentator and analyst for Channel 4 TV but his story is utterly compelling for anyone into sport, let alone motor racing. A thoroughly entertaining individual with a mischievous sense of humour, sit back and enjoy DC’s company, story and take on all the drivers past and present just days before the chequered flag is raised once again at Silverstone.

Lunch with Michael Johnson

August 10th

In the week of the world athletics championships taking place in London we are honoured to be staging a lunch with one of the greatest track and field stars of all time, Michael Johnson. The American superstar helped himself to four Olympic gold medals in the 200, 400 and 4 x 400m relays at the Barcelona, Atlanta and Sydney Games, as well as a "mere" nine world titles. He also held the world records in the 200 and 400m for 12 and 17 years respectively, the former finally falling to a certain Usain Bolt. Following his success at the Atlanta Olympics, where he was the face of the Games and wore golden spikes, Johnson became the sport's first "million dollar athlete." Since his retirement he has become not only one of the most respected figures in the sport but a familiar face and voice on BBC TV, where he has built up a reputation as one of the best and most authoritative pundits in British sports television. Come and meet the great man in the flesh, have your photo taken with track and field royalty and listen to his compelling story.
