GLOBAL dance superstar and entrepreneur Michael Flatley has been announced as the guest of honour at this year’s Irish Post VIP Business Gala Dinner.
The London-based performer will also receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at the October 31 event.
Flatley first found fame with Riverdance when he led a troupe of dancers in the television interval act at the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin.
He has since gone on to create and produce many highly successful dance shows including Lord of the Dance, Feet of Flames and Celtic Tiger.
He will be joined at the event by City A.M. Editor Allister Heath, who will be the event’s keynote speaker.
An influential voice in London’s business community, Heath will discuss the importance of the trade and economic relationship between Britain and Ireland.
Commenting on guest of honour Flatley, Irish Post Editor Siobhán Breatnach said the newspaper is “thrilled to welcome Michael Flatley to our inaugural VIP Gala Dinner”.
