As the euphoria around the Olympics continues, British athletes are finding that a two minute race can either catapult them to sporting glory or leave them in relative obscurity. But it’s not just athletes whose careers are being defined by the Games. The huge global significance of the Olympic Games, its decade-long development and the financial commitment it has required all mean that it will define both politics in general and also politicians themselves.
Many thanks to Isabel Dedring, London’s Deputy Mayor for Transport, for talking to a packed Monday morning Business Breakfast here at Fleishman-Hillard London.
Isabel talked with huge enthusiasm about our capital city, its transport system and the Olympics and engaged in a well received Q&A and networking discussion with London businesses.

Does the Internet trump family and friends when it comes to influencing you? If the answer is yes, you’re in good company. According to the latest results of Fleishman-Hillard’s 2012 Digital Influence Index, 66% of those surveyed ranked the Internet as most important in making decisions in daily life.
Fleishman-Hillard’s annual global study, conducted in partnership with Harris Interactive, assesses the role and influence of different media in the lives of consumers. This third edition of the study now includes Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. Collectively, these eight nations represent more than half of the world’s online population.
So how does the UK pan out?
Perhaps a bit like people knowing where they were when JFK died (or in my case Kurt Cobain), we will all remember the strange time when all air traffic was grounded for days on end.
Not since the dawn of air travel has a natural disaster grounded planes. And let’s not even think about the fact that the last time the Icelandic volcano went off was between 1821 and 1823. Yes that’s right a two year rumbling eruption – hmm.
