Iron Maiden's high-flyer to speak at lunch
EVENTS: Iron Maiden's lead singer and commercial pilot Bruce Dickinson will be helping Humber Business Week get off to a flying start.
The serial entrepreneur will share his philosophies of business and enterprise with guests at the Humber Business Luncheon at the KC Stadium on Monday, June 3.
Organised by East Yorkshire and the Humber IoD, Bruce will give guests an insight into how he manages to combine diverse business and personal interests across sectors and continents.
Bruce first achieved success with Iron Maiden when he joined as lead singer in 1981. He left the band in 1993 to pursue a solo career, his passion for fencing and an interest in becoming a pilot.

Returning to the stage with Iron Maiden in 1999, Bruce has gone on to release four albums but has not stopped flying Boeing 757s.
He has piloted the band and crew on tour, as well as taking part in some high-profile rescue flights such as that of the RAF pilots out of Afghanistan in 2008 and 180 British tourists back from Egypt after the collapse of the XL Holiday company.
IoD chairman Richard Tuplin said: "The Humber Luncheon is one of the highlights of our events calendar – we always aim to secure high-profile speakers and this year is no exception.
"Bruce Dickinson is the lead singer of one of the world's greatest rock bands, a commercial pilot, business angel, entrepreneur and creative business thinker. With his captivating style and humour he is sure to entertain and motivate."
