Quite chuffed to see that my blog was mentioned in the FT today, in connection with Ralph Topping starting one.


Sporting chance for Topping blog

Always good for a few punchy words of wisdom, William Hill chief executive Ralph Topping has launched his own blog after months of planning.

His first entry in the week of the Grand National – a rant on sports governing bodies trying to gain control of sports betting – will be followed by various topics ranging from William Hill’s financial performance and politics to sporting events and the X Factor over the next six months.

The blog will go head to head with that of former Betfair executive Mark Davies, called A View from Barnes Village. But from Carphone Warehouse founder Charles Dunstone to Waitrose’s Mark “chubby grocer” Price, blogs by business heads never seem to last long. Let’s hope Mr Topping does not run out of steam.
