The Hearing

The Hearing: Cherie Booth QC

Kevin Poulter in conversation with Cherie Booth QC aka Cherie Blair, Omnia Strategy

Original release date: 8 July 2019

“The one question we wanted to know when we sat down with our latest high-profile guest was whether it was BLAIR or BOOTH? No second guessing as to who we’re speaking about. Yes, our latest guest on The Hearing podcast is barrister, lecturer, writer, Founder and Chair of Omnia Strategy, and former resident of 10 Downing Street, Cherie Blair (Booth).

Kevin heads across to leafy Marylebone to sit down with Cherie, where she shares a number anecdotes from her life and career. A few highlights include: overcoming the gender imbalance during the 70’s and 80‘s at the Bar, putting aside her ambition of becoming High Court Judge when her husband became PM, and how she dragged herself to court just 10 days after a caesarean.

During their conversation, Cherie’s love for the law is obvious. Whether it’s her continued international legal and advisory work, mentoring the next generation of lawyers, or discussing Lord Derry Irvine’s love for Pugin wallpaper, she maintains the same level of enthusiasm as she had when she started 40 years ago. And with so many plans in place and work to do, there is no sign of her slowing down.
