If a leader has made it to household name status in British business, chances are they've been snapped by MT photographers Harry Borden and Julian Dodd on the way. Which is why MT is excited to announce that it's been digging through its photographic archives and will present the results, a look back at the larger-than-life corporate chiefs at the centre of the last two decades of takeovers, scandals, and fortunes made and lost, next week at a star-studded reception at East London's Whitechapel Gallery on Wednesday, March 30th.

Some of the biggest names in British business will be attending, but there are two catches: firstly, it's one night only. Secondly, it's invitation-only - but, since we're generous souls, MT is giving away five invitations.

To see some of the most iconic images from the last 20 years of business (and mingle with some of the biggest names in the industry), just answer the following question:

Which recently-retired chief executive has been named Britain’s Most Admired Leader (in MT’s annual poll) on no fewer than eight occasions?

Send your answers to or tweet them to @mt_editorial by 5pm on Friday, March 25th, to be in with a chance of winning.
