Carole Stone was for many years the producer of BBC Radio 4’s flagship discussion programme ‘Any Questions?’, every week inviting the country’s leading figures to answer the public’s questions about the topics of the day. Since leaving the BBC Carole has developed a unique business based on her wide circle of friends and business contacts. Her database now includes details of 30,000 people, and she is the author of two books on what she calls ‘good’ networking.
Working with chairmen and chief executives of large companies and charities Carole brings together politicians, journalists and business people – today’s opinion formers – to discuss issues of mutual interest. She also holds regular ‘salons’ at her home in London’s Covent Garden both to introduce people to each other and to focus on particular topics.
Now, as Chairman of YouGovStone, Carole has developed these activities inviting opinion formers to consider and provide feedback on the most important issues facing the country today.
