About this Event:

Former ambassador Sherard Cowper-Coles lifts the lid on embassy life around the world. Cowper-Coles’s distinguished career took him from the corridors of Whitehall – where he wrote speeches for Margaret Thatcher and Geoffrey Howe – to Beirut, Alexandria, Cairo, Washington, Paris and Hong Kong. It was followed by a spell as principal private secretary to Robin Cook under New Labour and a succession of ambassadorial posts that culminated in a posting to Afghanistan. Cowper-Coles provides a fascinating and witty insight into the life of a diplomat.

This event is part of the festival’s leadership strand.
