John Flanner MBE has been an inspiration to thousands of people says Rob Bishop!

Rob Bishop, Assistant Programme Editor, Aston Villa Football Club shares his views about the impact of John’s talks:

“He hasn’t been able to watch a football match for the best part of half-a-century, but John Flanner’s knowledge of Aston Villa is second to none.

"John has simply refused to allow his blindness to interfere with his enjoyment and appreciation of his favourite club, and his thirst for information is unquenchable.  That is typical of a man who, through words both written and spoken, has been an inspiration to many thousands of people more fortunate than himself.

“I guarantee if John is able to deliver a talk at your event or Company then the impact in terms of positive energy will be instant and amazing.”
