Distinguished Journalist John McCarthey CBE to Captivate Glazing Summit Gala Dinner
In a remarkable highlight of this year’s Glazing Summit, the Gala Dinner will be graced by none other than the illustrious British journalist, author, and broadcaster, John McCarthey CBE. His story is not just a narrative; it’s a testament to the strength of the human spirit.
From Captivity to Liberation: A Story of Resilience
In April 1986, John embarked on his inaugural foreign assignment for the United Press International Television News. However, fate had an entirely different plan. On his way to the airport, he was abducted by Islamic Jihad, marking the beginning of a journey that would transform him into Britain’s longest-held hostage. For over five grueling years, he grappled with uncertainty, resilience, and the indomitable will to survive. His tale of captivity will unfold at the Glazing Summit dinner, an evening etched with dignity, humility, and inspiration.
A Message of Resilience
Founder of the Glazing Summit, Andrew Scott, expressed the profound honor of having John McCarthy as the after-dinner speaker. With an engaging narrative, John will share his compelling story, weaving a tale of adversity and triumph. His words will resonate deeply, sparking contemplation on the human spirit’s unwavering ability to endure and overcome.
