BOOK NOW

Known as the ‘First Lady of Football’, Brady will be delivering an inspirational account of how she started her career as an 18-year-old apprentice at an advertising company through to becoming Vice Chairman of West Ham United FC and Lord Sugar’s right-hand woman on The Apprentice.

Born in Edmonton, North London, Karren started a career in advertising sales straight after leaving school.

Starting at Saatchi & Saatchi, she swiftly moved onto LBC as a sales executive before joining David Sullivan’s Sport Newspapers Ltd, becoming a Director within a year.

In 1993, aged just 23, she was appointed MD of Birmingham City FC, when the club was in administration. Four years later, she became the youngest managing director of a UK plc, when she floated the club on the London Stock Exchange.

Having turned Birmingham City FC around, Karren negotiated the club’s sale in 2009 for £82 million.

In 2010, Brady was appointed Vice-Chairman of West Ham United FC and led a successful bid for the club’s move to London’s iconic 54,000-seat Olympic Stadium. Under her leadership, West Ham has become one of the fastest-growing brands in world football.

Karren Brady – Baroness Brady of Knightsbridge CBE is recognised as the UK’s most high-profile businesswoman. This, together with her natural wit, honest and down-to-earth approach, witnessed by millions through her starring role on ‘The Apprentice’, has made her one of the world’s most sought-after motivational business speakers.

Join us at Ashton Gate to listen to Karren Brady’s incredible stories on Friday, November 25th, 8am-10am in the Lansdown Club Restaurant.
