You get a call, on a Friday afternoon and it's "John Cleese". I thought my pals were past all that spoof phone call stuff, except it really was John Cleese. And he REALLY WAS calling for me. He's speaking at a massive conference in Harrogate in June and wanted to talk about his speech. We had a chat and we've opened a line of dialogue. Fantastic. He was really warm and witty, slightly dismissive of the conventions of PR and marketing and genuinely interested in what the mood of business people in the North of England is.
