Hear from our special guests including:


Rebecca Jackson

Racing driver, TV presenter and owner of Prestige Cars

Rebecca Jackson, Championship winning Professional Racing Driver, Telegraph Cars Motoring Journalist, TV presenter and business woman. She can also be found on major channels such as Sky News discussing current motoring issues and has work published in GQ Magazine, Auto Express and The Sunday Times. She holds a Guinness World Record for the most number of countries visited on one tank of fuel, in conjunction with Audi and RAC. 

After self-starting a used car sales business in 2007, Rebecca was able to embark on a racing career, success begun with 5 podiums in her second season of competing in the Porsche 924 Championship. She then stepped up to race a Porsche Boxster in line with Project Le Mans, her four-year plan to race at arguably the most prestigious 24-hour endurance race in the world winning the BRSCC Production Porsche Boxster Championship. 2015 saw another step up, into a 911 Cup car. In 2016 she competed in The European GT Series in a KTM X-Bow GT4 run by German based Reiter Engineering, finishing in 3rd place in the Reiter Young Stars Championship. 2016 also saw her fulfil Project Le Mans by racing an LMP3 car at what is arguably the most prestigious motorsport event in the world, Le Mans. Last year Rebecca competed in a full season of MINI CHALLENGE, a feeder series for the British Touring Cars.

To accompany an already busy schedule she can also be found on ITV4 presenting I Want That Car, guest appearances on Fifth Gear, live hosting for Goodwood and after-dinner-speeches as well as co-starring in a new show on CBBC called “Ali A’s Superchargers”. This complements her role as Michelin Inspirational Woman, which she was awardedwith three consecutive years running; inspiring young ladies to fulfil their dreams and achieve their goals. She is also a charity Ambassador for the Charity Fuel Card, SMART RISK and a patron for the Help the Heroes 4x4 European Rally. 


Aki Stamatis

Chaiman of the Fourfront Group 

As chairman of Fourfront Group, Stamatis plays a major role in setting the strategy, direction and development of the Group. He is behind key initiatives such as the Fourfront Way and Women in Fourfront which have achieved recognition both inside and outside the industry, most recently Aki being nominated as an ‘agent of change’ in gender inequality.

Alongside Fourfront Group’s HR director Pippa Savory, Stamatis launched the Women in Fourfront initiative three years ago to develop and support the firm’s female employees. Two women who took part in the programme have since been promoted to Fourfront’s board and the company was named an Enlightened Employer at the Women in Business Awards.

Being an accredited business coach and mentor, Stamatis is a great believer in a company culture focused on developing people.
