"The more successful you are, the more lovers you get, but the more haters you get.” 

What do Sir Elton John, Simon Cowell and ‘fifth Beatle’ George Martin all have in common? Well aside from the multi-million-pound bank balances, all of them have made it on to the ‘nice’ list of one of the UK’s most prolific talent managers, Jonathan Shalit OBE. Liz Taylor uncovers some of the events that made Jonathan the “king of showbiz” including how he  successfully navigated incredibly tough financial and professional challenges in 2019. 

Liz Taylor’s 30-year career in event planning has built an impressive portfolio of events, including celebrity weddings, charity fundraisers like Children in Need with Gary Barlow and huge gala dinners such as Winter White Gala at Kensington Palace for HRH Duke of Cambridge, as well as the Manchester United Champions League winning after party in Moscow and Coronation Street’s 40th anniversary celebrations. During lockdown in March, with the events industry on hold, she turned her attention to launching her own consultancy and realised a lifelong ambition in launching her own podcast.
