The UK200Group is very proud to announce that the After-Dinner Speaker at our Annual Conference this year, at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead; is Fab Flournoy, the most successful player-coach in British Basketball history. Suggested by Newcastle based UK200Group member firm, Robson Laidler, Fab is currently the player/coach of the Newcastle Eagles, a role he has held for the past fifteen years. In that time his unparalleled commitment, motivational skills and drive have established the Eagles as the best club in the British Basketball League.


UK200Group is the UK’s leading association of independent chartered accountancy and law firms, with connections around the world. The association brings together around 150 member offices in the UK with more than 500 partners who represent c150,000 SME business clients and with international links in nearly 70 countries.


Fab Flournoy is the most successful player-coach in British Basketball history. He has won everything there is to win in the domestic basketball league including 25 trophies in the last ten years, seven league titles, won 80 per cent of all the games the Eagles have played and Fab leads the British Basketball League with games played (550).


The unique standpoint of being a player-coach allows him to understand the nuances of both building a team on the management side and being part of that team on the playing side. This quality makes him a much sought-speaker for businesses and teams looking to replicate his success. Despite being a native of New York, he qualified for the English Basketball team and won a bronze medal playing for England in the 2006 Commonwealth games. Fab was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2017 New Year Honours for services to British basketball and the community in the North East.


Fab Flournoy said, “I am delighted to have been asked to speak at the upcoming UK200Group Annual Conference. I’m looking forward to meeting delegates at what promises to be a great event.”


Declan Swan, UK200Group CEO said, “We are very much looking forward to hearing Fab speak at the UK200Group Annual Conference this year. His drive, determination and hard work ethic will resonate strongly with our members. I’m sure the delegates, myself included, will both enjoy and learn from Fab’s extensive experience.”


The UK200Group Annual Conference takes place on the 15th, 16th and 17th of November at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead. Delegates from around the world will come together to cover topics including the state of the economy, technology, talent acquisition, immigration.
