Norman Lamont presided over the withdrawal of sterling from the Exchange Rate Mechanism and what quickly became known as Black Monday. He was later described by the economist Sir Alan Walters as “not only the most effective, but also the bravest Chancellor since the war.” Originally an investment banker, he served in both Thatcher and Major Cabinets – and was also David Cameron’s boss. They continue to have a close relationship.

Norman charts the likely course of the recession, the challenges and pitfalls for Brown and Darling, the next steps for the G20 and the outlook for the UK and Europe. As accomplished after dinner as he is delivering keynote speeches, Norman knows what it’s like to be in the full glare of the tabloid spotlight. He’s also the most recent Chancellor you can book to speak at your events!
