Celebrated UK opera tenor and the nationally recognised face of one of Wales’ most successful businesses, Wynne Evans took centre stage at the M4 Business Network breakfast event to recite the highlights and often hilarious stories from his career on stage, screen, and the airwaves of BBC Radio Wales.

Wynne Evans has performed as a principal with all of the major opera houses and orchestras, including Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Welsh National Opera and English National Opera.

Yet, to most around the UK Wynne is best known as the face of the multi-million-pound advertising campaign for Newport-based comparison website GoCompare.com, playing the flamboyant character Gio Compario.

Paul Byett, chairman of the M4 Business Network and managing partner of its main sponsor UHY Hacker Young, said: “It was a pleasure to have Wynne join us as our guest speaker. As you’d expect from such an accomplished performer, he delivered one of our most entertaining events, while providing a window into life as an international opera star and what it takes to help make a company one of the country’s most well-known brands.

“We thank Wynne for helping us to deliver another great event for our members, who we look forward to welcoming back at our next event in September.”

The next M4 Business Network event will be September 11 followed by November 13, when the guest speaker will be celebrated journalist and award-winning newspaper editor Eve Pollard.

The M4 Business Network has established itself as the premier networking organisation in south Wales, attracting members from along the M4 corridor.
