Ian Hyder, director of The Licensing Awards and The Licensing Source Book, which owns and organises the Awards, commented: “It is a tall order finding the right host for The Licensing Awards – thankfully Greg is 6’ 8”.
“There will be well over 1,300 people at this year’s event and it’s no mean feat to keep everyone amused while getting through the key business of the evening, presenting the industry’s ultimate accolades, but he is a big enough man for the job.”
