People of Today


Published annually for over 30 years, People of Today is dedicated to contemporary achievement.

Inclusion is by invitation only; with specialist panels selecting whom they believe is making an impression in Britain today.

The ultimate biographical study of the UK’s most successful and influential people.

Unlike other reference guides, entrants are not guaranteed a place for life. The transparent and objective inclusion criteria ensure membership comprises only people with real impact and influence.

Leading figures from 40 different sectors – such as politics, sport, business, academia, religion and the media – are included with details of family history, achievements and interests.

Entrants include Booker Prize winner Dame Hilary Mantel, actor and comedian David Walliams, inspirational Paralympic swimmer Ellie Simmonds, Daily Telegraph editor Chris Evans, business leader and vice-chairman of West Ham Karren Brady and Oscar-winning actor Sir Daniel Day-Lewis.
