I have uploaded this out of the playlist order by accident. I thought I was uploading the last Not The Tommy Boyd Show. Hence you hear me saying this is my last UK one, but there still is one more UK one.

When Nicole Kidman was asked if she would like to take part, she apparently retorted that she had had “”enough short cruises to last a lifetime”.

Joking apart, now is the time for all good accountants to come to the aid of the pa-a-arty, as we board the Silver Sturgeon and make our way along Old Father Thames to Greenwich.

Try to get him for your event or catch up with him on one of his speaking tours. He is still going strong in 2020.
