I’ve joined the Hamilton Commission, led by Lewis Hamilton MBE

Anne-Marie Imafidon MBE and Lewis Hamilton MBE on stage at the 2019 meConvention to open the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show

Last September to open the IAA’s Frankfurt Motor Show, in front of an audience of a few hundred, I interviewed Lewis Hamilton. It was surreal for many reasons – I’m not a petrolhead, it was my second time on the stage at the event. And obviously, I was interviewing THE […]

In 2017 I was made an Honorary Fellow. I’ve still not quite got used to the special places across the college […]
