Harry Redknapp, the respected footballer, football manager and a past winner of ‘I’m a Celebrity…’ has today (21 March) been confirmed as the guest speaker at Suffolk Chamber of Commerce’s Prestige Dinner later this year.

After a 17-year career as a player, Harry Redknapp achieved notable successes as a manager, including for Portsmouth and Tottenham Hotspur. He is also a well-known media personality, being crowned as ‘King of the Jungle’ during the 2018 season of the reality TV series.

As guest speaker, Harry will be following in the footsteps of other high-profiled greats such as John Sergeant, Ben Fogle and Clare Balding whose presence has established the black-tie Prestige Dinners as the social highlight of the Suffolk business calendar.

Held this year at Wherstead Park, up to 250 Suffolk Chamber members and their guests will be welcomed to the Grade II Listed mansion for an arrival drink and networking. They will then make their way to the glass-roofed atrium, where they will enjoy a three-course meal and Harry Redknapp’s unique recollections and stories.

John Dugmore, Suffolk Chamber’s chief executive, said: “booking Harry Redknapp is another major coup for the county’s leading business organisation. I’ve had the privilege of attending all the previous Prestige Dinners and each of them were incredibly memorable and high-quality events. I’m so looking forward to this year’s!”

The 2022 Prestige Dinner takes place on Friday 23 September 6:00pm –10:30pm and according to Ami Birrell, Suffolk Chamber’s events manager, both ticket sales and sponsorship opportunities are being snapped up:

“We’ve already sold a third of the 250 seats and some of our sponsorship packages have also been reserved. However, there are still a number of Silver Sponsorship packages available, but companies interested in maximising their association with this first-rate event will need to move quickly.

“The essence of our Prestige Dinners is that they offer a wonderful opportunity for Suffolk Chamber members to entertain their customers in the best locations in the county and to hear at first hand from inspiring and well-known speakers.”
