More About the Author

Stanley Jackson was born in Epsom and spent his early years in a council prefab. He joined the middle classes in 1966 when he married Iris and acquired the first in a series of unaffordable mortgages. Having lived in sixteen different locations, including Hong Kong, produced three children and two grandchildren, they find themselves back in Surrey.

Along the way, Stanley has enjoyed two successful careers; the first as a leading authority on the use, and abuse, of occupational pension schemes; the second as a highly respected supplier of celebrities to the corporate market, through the company he founded, Performing Artistes. He is still paying off his latest mortgage but hopes this book of revelations might just help.

Now poacher turned gamekeeper, celebrity booker Stanley has also joined the speaking circuit himself as a performer and after-dinner speaker. His highly entertaining presentation doesn't pull any punches about the highs and lows of his career in the world of sport and celebrity, and the tricky situations he has sometimes found himself in.

Product Description

About the Author

Stanley Jackson was born in Epsom and spent his early years in a council prefab. He joined the middle classes in 1966 when he married Iris and acquired the first in a series of unaffordable mortgages. Having lived in sixteen different locations, including Hong Kong, produced three children and two grandchildren, they found themselves back in Surrey. Along the way, Stanley has enjoyed two successful careers; the first as a leading authority on the use, and abuse, of occupational pension schemes; the second, as a highly respected supplier of celebrities to the corporate market, through the company he founded, Performing Artistes. He is still paying off his mortgage but hopes this book of revelations might help. His maternal grandfather, Stanley Howard Stubbs, was involved in shipping horses to France in the Great War; an heroic activity given brilliant theatrical expression in the award winning stage play Warhorse, adapted from Michael Morpurgo's book of the same name. As a result of a DNA test taken with his brother, whilst researching their family tree, his paternal lineage remains a complete mystery.

Format: Hardcover
i loved this book. i thought the way stanley dipped in and out of the chapters with titbits of his private life was genious and bought a very humane touch to the book. "get me a celebrity" is a real page turner and even if some of the celebs are not of great interest to you, stanley found a way to make them interesting. i loved it

This book provides a fascinating insight into what goes on behind the scenes at corporate events. If you've ever been to a corporate event and wondered why or how a famous stand up comedian or well known TV presenter was in attendance this book will give you the answers; similarly, find out what comedians on panel shows mean when they talk about "doing a corporate!". Packed full of anecdotes featuring celebrities from the worlds of sport, politics and entertainment, this is a jolly good read.
