Karren Brady to give it a year

West Ham Vice-Chairman Karren Brady will star in her own TV show on ITV next month called ‘Give it a year’

With an unfortunate title and very unfortunate timing, the programme will see Brady set tough targets for new businesses only to return one year later to see what progress they have made.

Outside of her directorship at West Ham Brady has a number of jobs including the BBC Apprentice, Sun columnist, Baroness in the House in Lords, Chairman of Taveta Investments Ltd (Phillip’s Green’s retail company), Non-executive Director of GUS Services UK Limited, Director of Be Equal Ltd,  frequent motivational and after dinner speaker, member of the Women and Sport Advisory Board and the Government’s Small Business Ambassador.

You can find the Baroness register of financial interests at the House of Lords at https://www.parliament.uk/biographies/lords/baroness-brady/4339

Last season West Ham accounts reveal the Vice Chairman was paid £868,000 by West Ham while her net worth is estimated to be around £85m.

  1. Forgive me for asking but what does Brady know about meeting business targets? Let’s look at some of hers:

    World class team in a world class stadium? Fail
    Challenging for Champions League? Fail
    Retractable seating? Fail
    Recruit the right manager? Fail
    Effective player recruitment strategy? Fail
    Clear the debt? Fail
    Make it enjoyable to come and watch? Fail
    Build the status and image of the club? Epic fail
    Listen to the supporters? Sorry, I fell on the floor laughing.

  2. Sounds like money for old rope as my grandad would have said.

  3. …so, she’s one of us then…

  4. Makes you wonder how many other CEO’s earning a million pound a year get time off to persue being a “celebrity”
