Four times gold medallist Matthew Pinsent, BBC Commentator Claire Balding and Lord Tony Hall, CEO Royal Opera House, took part in a panel of questions from the audience led by the Chief Executive of Barclays Retail Banking, Deanna Oppenheimer.
The 2010 Women of the Year lecture took place on Tuesday 20 April at the Royal Institution in London. Tessa Jowell Minister for the Cabinet Office, the Olympics and London and Paymaster General, spoke about the 2012 Olympic Games and their Legacy in front of an invited audience of men and women associated with Women of the Year.
She made two firm promises: The first was to transform the heart of East London and the second was to inspire a generation of young people through sport. Edited highlights of the lecture can be viewed online shortly.
The speech inspired great debate both in and outside the hall and there was no doubt that Mrs. Jowell made clear commitment that the Games would be delivered on time, on budget and on track.
