NI Chamber President’s Banquet revs into action with ex-Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond
Richard Hammond, famed as one of the presenters on Amazon’s The Grand Tour, has been announced as the guest speaker at the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s annual President’s Banquet in Belfast this November.
The dinner, which is billed as a celebration of “engineering in motion” will celebrate Northern Ireland’s engineering prowess at Belfast Waterfront on 16 November 2017.
Richard Hammond, who is also best known for co-hosting the BBC2 car programme Top Gear with Jeremy Clarkson and James May, will provide the after dinner keynote speech.
In addition, he is known for presenting a variety of science and entertainment programmes including Brainiac: Science Abuse, Total Wipeout and Planet Earth Live.
He presented a documentary series, Richard Hammond’s Engineering Connections, originally broadcast on the National Geographic Channel and later on BBC2 which looks at how engineers and designers use historic inventions and clues from the natural world in ingenious ways to develop new buildings and machines.
Over 800 guests are expected to attend NI Chamber’s gala event which is a highlight of the business calendar every year.
The event is supported by NI Chamber’s Communications Partner BT and supporting sponsors Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council and Tughans.
