Opening Keynote Address

British and US Politics: What’s Next?

Michael Dobbs 300

Michael Dobbs – Lord Dobbs of Wylye
British Lawmaker, Creator and Author of the House of Cards trilogy, Executive Producer of Netflix’s House of Cards

He’s never had a proper job – and now he’s a member of the House of Lords as Lord Dobbs of Wylye, perhaps he never will …

He’s spent too much of his life hanging around all the wrong places at interesting times. He was with Margaret Thatcher when she took her first steps into Downing Street as Prime Minister, and he was there again with John Major when he was kicked out. In between he got bombed in Brighton and banished from Chequers (after a row with Maggie), and helped win a few elections. In the quieter moments wrote a book called House of Cards. As former Prime Minister John Major once said, it had done for his job “what Dracula has done for baby sitting.”

In his restless search for a proper job, he’s also been Deputy Chairman of Saatchi & Saatchi, a TV presenter and newspaper columnist, and widely acclaimed speaker.

In short, Lord Dobbs' insights are always enlightening and never boring.
