Your Ultimate Dinner Party

Not only did Fleur + Sarah organise a Royal Wedding Party at our place1 the other week, but with my own wedding coming up next year – invites and parties have been on my mind…

If you had the pull, the power and the presence – who would you invite to your dream dinner party? 

Here’s how mine would play out…

Image the exchange that Tony Robbins could draw from LeBron James about how a 17 year old kid could not only survive, but create a name for himself as a person amongst the worlds biggest egos in the NBA. And the advice the greatest of them all, Michael Jordan could provide. 

What about the tête-à-tête between the world greatest pick-up artist Neil Strauss and the worlds most famous womanizer Bill Clinton.  

The lessons that could be drawn from the stories John Mayer, Robin Williams and Al Gore would share about ‘performing’ for a crowd. 

The debates Malcom GladwellNelson Mandela, Bono and Arnold Schwarzeneggar would have about changing a society.

Steve JobsBernard Arnault 2 and Oprah about shaping popular cultures opinions, tastes and desires.

Kanye WestTiger WoodsLance Armstrong, and Tom Cruise must have some lessons for everyone on self belief.

If you’re the business type you’d really want to be a fly on the wall for the discussion between Michael BloombergWarren Buffet, Mark Zuckerberg and Biz Stone on growing and valuing businesses. 

We all know Jay-Z isn’t a “businessman, he’s a business man“, but just think about what Will SmithElle McPherson, and The Donald could add on creating and living a brand.

And imagine dissecting the dialectic between Rupert Murdock Seth Godin, Sergey Brin & Larry Page, Kevin Rose and Tim Ferris on media and publishing … and I am sure Tucker Max would have something to add.

I’d also love to invite Chris RockGeorge Clooney and Brad Pitt, but I’m not sure what mischief they would get up to. 

Oh yeah.. and for the ornithologists of you out there, Rihanna, Heidi Klum, Alicia Silverstone, Kate Hudson, Scarlett Johansson, Vanessa Hudgens, Jennifer Anniston, Blake Lively and Pippa Middleton

So.. Send me an @Preneur on Twitter and let me know who’d you invite to your party.
