An Audience with Self-Made Billionaire, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist and Phones4U Founder, JOHN CAUDWELL

LOCATION: 12 Hay Hill

TIME: From 6:00pm

In this very special edition of our popular “An Audience with” series, we’re honoured to be joined by self-made billionaire, entrepreneur, and philanthropist John Caudwell.

John grew up in Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire, England, and discovered his commercial and creative streak at a young age. It was in the mid-1980s, when operating a successful car dealership in his hometown, that he turned a communications problem into a business opportunity.

John founded Caudwell Group, the pioneering telecommunications company which included Phones 4U, the UK’s largest independent mobile phone retailer with more than 600 stores across the country. When he sold the business in 2006 for £1.46 billion, the company was selling 26 phones a minute.

As one of the first Britons to sign the Giving Pledge, John committed to giving at least half his wealth to charitable causes during and after his lifetime, which he later increased to a phenomenal 70%.

John gives significantly to and raises the profiles of myriad causes which struggle to receive attention, funding, and assistance. His own charities are Caudwell Children, Caudwell Youth and Caudwell LymeCo.

While John remains active in business, he now devotes most of his time to his lifelong philanthropic ambitions, so we’re privileged that he has agreed to spend a couple of hours with the Club. Join us for an evening of ‘inspired access’ and meet this incredible entrepreneur, business leader and philanthropist. A one-of-a-kind opportunity we’re privileged to be able to bring to you.
