Rt Hon Lord (William) Hague

Former Conservative Party Leader, Foreign Secretary and Leader of the House of Commons

William Hague served as Conservative Party Leader, Foreign Secretary and Leader of the House of Commons. He shares insights into world affairs and the many styles of leadership

William first grabbed the headlines when he addressed the Conservative conference as a 16-year old activist. After Oxford and an early career at McKinsey & Company, he went on to become MP for Richmond, Party Leader, Foreign Secretary and Leader of the Commons.

At the Foreign Office William’s portfolio covered events in Syria and Libya, the removal of British forces from Afghanistan, Russia’s annexation of Crimea, the terrorist threat and relations with the EU. He travelled more extensively than any of his predecessors and put added diplomatic focus on the UK export drive.

Closer to home William led the talks that resulted in coalition with the Liberal Democrats. A combination of foreign and domestic roles gives him rare insight into the body politic and the causes behind growing global instability. As well as shining a light on geopolitical developments he explores the impact of economic trends, advances in tech, migration, demographic change and the growth of religious fundamentalism.

Away from politics, William has built a reputation as a bestselling historian. He is also co-Founder, with Angelina Jolie Pitt, of Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict.

He is also an accomplished historian, author of two bestsellers and winner of the History Book of the Year Award.

Throughout his political career, he has worked with many global leaders all of whom have different leadership styles. He draws from this experience – drawing on numerous debates with Tony Blair and first-hand knowledge of the world’s Presidents from George W Bush to Vladimir Putin.

William Hague is a fabulous after dinner speaker with many an anecdote. He was lauded by Hillary Clinton as the Beckham of after dinner speakers. He reveals his favourite tactics at Prime Minister’s Questions and the dangers of mixing politicians, wine and the media.

Very many thanks for joining us at the T. Rowe Price Joint Director Meetings this week. Your speech at the Natural History Museum was OUTSTANDING!! We have had many speakers in the past both here and in the US but for me, this was the best we have ever had and I have had nothing but glowingly positive comments from many people. You adhered to the briefing call perfectly and got the balance between substance and humour spot on. Thank you also for being such a gracious guest, for mingling freely with people and being happy to switch tables between courses. It is refreshing to see someone so respected to equally be so humble.

Friendly, approachable and engaging. His talk was great and he really did focus on BREXIT and the possible impact. We would recommend him to any organisation.

William did really well to talk to many of our guests pre-dinner which they really appreciated. Then, his talk was excellent, full of humour but with serious messages – a perfect blend. We had plenty of time for questions which he answered clearly.

An amazing after dinner speech, it was so entertaining, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive! I was not expecting to be so entertained, really fantastic. I can’t recommend him enough, the speech really made our dinner a huge success.
