Peter Bennett-Jones – Charity Chair
Peter Bennett-Jones founded PBJ Management, an artistic talent agency, in 1988 alongside the Tiger Television Group and has worked as an agent and producer domestically and internationally since then. His long-term clients include Rowan Atkinson, Harry Enfield, Lenny Henry and Armando Iannucci.
Members however may be more interested in the BCKR context, in hearing of Peter’s services to charity and the arts. He co-founded Comic Relief, which he chaired from 1998-2013 and was, until earlier this year, the Chair of Save the Children. In the arts, Peter was on the Board of the National Theatre for 8 years (Chairing National Theatre Productions – the company which produces all NT work outside the South Bank) and is trustee/director of the Liverpool Everyman-Playhouse. He is also a Governor of Rugby School, Chairing the Arnold Foundation.
BCKR is delighted to welcome Peter to share his experiences on these boards, and his thoughts on the lawyer board members he has encountered along the way.
