Sir Clive Woodward
Motivational speech in Monaco

Special guest at the Evening Standard New Homes Awards
Now in their 23rd year, The Evening Standard New Homes Awards have grown into a not to be missed ceremony for the building industry. As well as supplying Dara O’Briain as the host of this years’ awards, Prime Performers were proud to send one of our young Olympians Lizzy Yarnold to add some grace and inspiration to the event. The British Olympic Skeleton Champion took to the stage to hand out the awards and meet and greet the nominees, whilst posing for a photo with each winner. We are sure that the photos will be treasured as much as the awards themselves!
