Philip Delves Broughton


Anto is joined by distinguished writer and contributor Philip Delves Broughton to take a look at his in depth story into the new world for AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi now that he has left political office and what next for his empire and fortune. This is the first of a series of examinations of the biggest figures inside the sport of world football, and it starts nowhere more significant than the biggest winner in the sport over the last 25 years. Owner, visionary and entrepreneur behind one of the biggest and most decorated football clubs in the world. We examine where he is today after his retreat from the office of Prime Minister last November to what he may do in the coming years and if he still has the fire to expand his empire and measure his ambition with the football club he once rescued from bankruptcy in 1986. We discuss the politics, his core ambitions, the failure and the many dichotomies within the man and how his unconventional character traits have both served him in business as well as serve to undermine him in the public eye. We identify where his next moves may exist and how influential he has been in the modern era of football, and this dovetails into the next generation who will eventually control and continue this empire entrenched in sport, media and entertainment. Philip Delves Broughton is a regular contributor to The Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Spectator. He is the author of the New York Times bestseller Ahead of the Curve: Two Years at Harvard Business School and The Art of the Sale: Learning from the Masters About the Business of Life, which will be published in April.
