Suffolk Chamber of Commerce’s first Prestige Dinner for nearly two years proved to be a great success as almost 200 guests were entertained to broadcaster and author Clare Balding OBE’s recollections of her career and life experiences.
In her first live public appearance since the first national lockdown in March 2020, Clare Balding spoke to her very appreciative audience for well over half an hour.
She recounted stories from her multifaceted career, including about the Olympics, her interviews with leading sportspeople and her various appearances on Celebrity Gogglebox.
She also spoke about the importance of team building, motivation and core beliefs in delivering successful outcomes whether in the media or in business more generally.
According to John Dugmore, Suffolk Chamber’s chief executive: “It was a great night. I think her stories of aiming high, planning carefully and coping with setbacks resonated with our audience, most of whom have probably experienced such highs and lows in business, especially over the last 18 months.”
