Clive Conway Will Present a Live Celebrity Interview Series in London

Lifetime Worldwide Branding member Clive Conway is an impresario and managing director of Clive Conway Celebrity Productions, a London-based talent production company. In representing the company’s stable of celebrity clientele, each year Clive Conway Celebrity Productions produces hundreds of events at unique venues including restaurants and theaters. Since 2002 he has served as curator of the hugely popular An Audience With … series, unique engagements with celebrities for the public at more than 200 theaters from Aberdeen to Taunton. Notables appearing at these events represent politics, journalism, show business and sports, et al.

As an extension of this successful program, Clive Conway Celebrity Productions has created the In Conversation With … series — a succession of celebrity encounters taking place at Cadogan Hall London. The first program presents John Humphrys, a prominent correspondent on the BBC program “Today”; for the second, Clive and company welcomes Felicity Kendal, a TV, film and stage actor best known for her role as Barbara Good in The Good Life; and for the third, Kelvin MacKenzie appears — a media figure best known for his controversial stint as editor of national tabloid newspaper The Sun. Each time, the celebrity will be interviewed by seasoned journalist Rob McGibbon, followed by an extensive Q&A session with the audience.

By positioning them on center stage in an improvisational, talk show-like setting, Clive anticipates great things will happen. His formula of placing people of interest under the spotlight at Cadogan Hall will also serve to attract new audiences to the theater, thus utilizing the 900-seat venue on nights when it would otherwise be dark. “Cadogan Hall is a perfect venue,” Clive remarks, “and Rob McGibbon has an original and irreverent style to his interviewing that always brings the best out of his subjects.”

Worldwide Who’s Who Member Clive Conway

Clive — who has been a Worldwide Branding member since January 18, 2012 — was born in London in 1953, brought up in Aldeburgh, and educated at The King’s School Ely. He studied flute and, in 1976, graduated from the Royal Academy of Music. He toured for several years as a recitalist, gave performances in the Purcell Room and Wigmore Hall, as well as on radio and television, and made many recordings with principals of major London orchestras. He conceived the idea for, and co-founded with Janet Way, the Oxford Flute Summer School in 1987, for which he currently serves as a consultant. He attributes his success to his drive, tenacity, powers of persuasion and sensitivity.
