AMI annual dinner speaker announced

Robert Sinclair, chief executive of AMI, said: "The Dinner, which will be held at The Millennium Mayfair Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London, will be addressed by Frank Gardner, who is the BBC’s fulltime security correspondent reporting on events from Afghanistan to piracy off the Somali coast to Arctic challenges.

“Frank was shot 6 times at close range while on assignment in Saudi Arabia in 2004, left severely wounded and dependant on a wheelchair.

“AMI and our event sponsors, Santander for Intermediaries are delighted to arrange for our guests to hear from an individual who has looked death in the face and continues to provide challenge and insight on complex issues.”
