It’s not quite Four Weddings and a Funeral but the end of the month is starting to look busy.
I’m looking forward to the next LikeMinds breakfast event on January 28th. The speaker at 12 Hay Hill this time will be media entrepreneur John Pearson. John is currently Chairman of Imagen but is possibly best known for his time as CEO at Virgin Radio. The fact that he has also been chairman at Shazam gives you an indication of the sort of circles in which he moves — and influences.
You can find out more about the event on the LikeMinds site and, of course, I’ll be writing up the event shortly after it happens. That report will appear — along with a video of me asking John some questions (or at least John answering my questions) — on the LikeMinds site and I’ll write a post here to let you know when it’s live.
In other news, I’ve been invited to a special screening of the new Paolo Sorrentino film — Youth — starring Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel (always a favourite except in the fucking Direct Line ads), and Rachel Weisz. The trailer looks good.
The film opens in the UK on the 29th of this month. I’ll be attending a screening on the 22nd. Get me.
The end of the month is already looking busy. I’m off to a special viewing of the new exhibition — Painting the Modern Garden — at The Royal Academy on the 27th. I’m just a cultural butterfly.
Reports on all to follow.
