Introducing you to our 3 guest speakers...

Liam Dillon


Liam Dillon is chef and owner of award-winning, The Boat Inn in Lichfield, Staffordshire. With previous experience in some of London’s and the world’s best kitchens, think Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley, Eleven Madison Park, Daniel, Gilt, and Tom Sellers, Story, Liam has returned to his hometown with the goal of raising the bar of Birmingham’s dining scene via the opening of his first solo venture, The Boat Inn, in 2017.

Liam’s cooking is inspired by his travels in Australia where produce was king and has applied the simplicity of cooking with premium ingredients to the menu at The Boat Inn. The Boat Inn intends to open the palates of locals introducing different flavours and techniques, challenging us to think out of the box, and courting the attentions of a Michelin star.

Robin Sheppard

Robin has been an hotelier for 40+ years winning many Hotel/Hotelier of the Year awards. In 2000 he co-founded Bespoke Hotels which has grown into the UK’s latest independent hotel group with over 200 properties, including the multi-award winning Hotel Gotham. Most recently he won the Hotel Catey and the Oxford Brookes awards for Outstanding Contribution to the Hospitality Industry. He is also Hotel Sector Champion for Disabled People.

His greatest achievement, though, has been to fight back from GBS, a totally paralysing illness. His relative recovery inspired him to launch the Bespoke Access Awards in conjunction with RIBA at the House of Lords encouraging better design and empathy from architects and interior designers.

This event is open to IOH members as well as non- members. Tickets for the event are free of charge and are likely to be in demand so please book now.
