With his renowned brilliance, humor and grace, Sir John Major brings amazing clarity and original solutions to complex economic and international issues.
As former Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Sir John Major is one of the most respected figures in the international arena. Sir John had little formal education, but through sheer will and talent became a great leader of both Great Britain and Northern Ireland on the world stage. With an eye towards both Europe and the U.S., he helps audiences understand the profound importance of promoting freedom and peaceful coexistence among nations, while reflecting on the challenges facing the free world: terrorism, the global economy and nation-building. Serving as Chief Secretary of the Treasury and Chancellor of the Exchequer prior to becoming Prime Minister, Sir John delivers the experienced insights of a hands-on global economist, sharing with audiences the indicators that signal shrinking—and thriving—economies. He provides audiences lessons about leading a nation of such historic and international significance—sharing personal experiences as well as providing examples from other distinguished world leaders. He is the author of three books: his best-selling memoir, John Major - The Autobiography (1999); More Than a Game: The Story of Cricket’s Early Years (2007), which examines the early history of one of the great loves of Sir John’s life, shedding new light on the summer game’s social origins; and My Old Man: A Personal History of Music Hall (September 2012), in which he takes a remarkable journey into his own unconventional family past to tell the richly colorful story of the British music hall.
