We were joined by three well known, highly entertaining and appropriately upbeat Brits for an unashamedly patriotic event…

Ben Fogle sees himself as an ‘accidental adventurer.’ Since Castaway he has led would-be explorers in Extreme Dreams, tracked Prince William in Botswana and lived for a month in Scott’s hut. He’s now set to take part in the Thames flotilla, in the same boat in which he rowed the Atlantic with James Cracknell. Ben embodies the message of his presentation: stay focused, embrace change and never give up.

Richard Madeley is a national institution. After 13 years presenting This Morning, Richard and his wife Judy moved to Channel 4 and established Book Club – which has had a phenomenal effect on the bestseller lists. A thoroughly warm and engaging storyteller, Richard engaged the room with plenty of anecdotes, and truly lifted the spirits.

Paddy O’Connell attracts over two million listeners to his Sunday Radio 4 show, Broadcasting House. A former Wall Street correspondent, he now hosts cultural tours of Britain for wealthy Americans and performs a one-man stage show about Eurovision: My Semi Heaven. Dismissive of the doom-mongers, he trumpeted our natural resourcefulness and offered eight reasons to remain steadfastly optimistic.
