This Wednesday, Tim Lamb, former Chief Executive of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), will be at the Coventry Conversations.
Under his leadership, the sport of cricket witnessed a period of unprecedented reform and modernisation.
Tim played professional first class cricket for Middlesex County Cricket Club between 1974 and 1977 and for Northamptonshire CCC from 1978 to 1983, before moving into sports administration. He was appointed General Manager of Middlesex CCC from 1984 to 1988 and subsequently Cricket Secretary, later Deputy Chief Executive, of the Test and County Cricket Board from 1988 to 1996.
Writer and broadcaster Christian Wolmar will speak at Thursday’s ‘Cov Con’. He specialises in Transport and has spent nearly all of his working life as a journalist. Wolmar was at The Independent from 1989 to 1997, mostly as transport correspondent.
Christian has become one of the UK’s leading commentators on transport matters and has won several awards for his work. He broadcasts frequently on radio and TV and is a regular pundit on the national news bulletins of terrestrial channels and Sky, as well as having appeared on virtually every radio news programme from World at One and the World Tonight to Radio One’s NewsBeat and LBC. He has made several radio documentaries, including a recent Radio 4 programme on the Broadwater Farm estate in Tottenham, 20 years after the riot and written four published books on rail and transport matters the latest on the use of Railways in War.
There will be a lot to learn from these speakers, only at the ‘Coventry Conversations’, in the Ellen Terry Building at 1pm.
