Fireside Chat with Sir Richard Dearlove

Sir Richard Dearlove is Non-Executive Chairman of Ascot Underwriting Limited and Non-Executive Director of Ascot Group Limited and is a former Chief of the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS).

The former head of MI6 has a unique insight into the special relationship between the UK and USA. BAB members will have 60 minutes with Sir Richard Dearlove whose intelligence career began in 1966 in the cold war era. His stories are astonishing and his role took him to geopolitical hotspots across the world placing him in unique and historic situations from sitting in a Bedouin tent with Col. Gadaffi and his all-female body guard to being on the only transatlantic flight to the USA immediately after 9/11.

Sir Richard will share his perspective on the evolving and enduring US-UK relationship, doing business with China and the rise of nation state interests in western democratic elections. Andrew Brooks, CEO, Ascot Insurance, and colleague, will draw out these fascinating stories and more in this exclusive virtual fireside chat, open to all employees from the BAB member companies in New York and London.
