Boris Johnson is in talks to sign up a speaking firm that counts former President Obama and tennis star Serena Williams among its high-profile clients, Sky News has learned.
Boris Johnson is in talks with one of Hollywood’s most famous talent agencies for lucrative talks after running for a second term as British Prime Minister. Sky News has learned that Mr Johnson has had detailed discussions with Endeavour, a group founded by US businessman Ari Emanuel.
Sources said the former Prime Minister, who resigned in September, had discussions with several talent agencies in recent weeks, including Endeavor and the Harry Walker Agency (HWA), one of his partners.

Film industry sources said on Tuesday that Mr Johnson could earn tens of millions of pounds from his speech and advertising if he is successful for several years. The initial cost or any debt it incurred is unknown.
A source close to him suggested that he has no plans to embark on any television projects “in the near future”, although they did admit that he intends to hold several concerts in the coming months. Advertising
Mr. Johnson has held talks with other workers and his contract with Endeavor and HWA is not guaranteed to go through, the person added.
It is understood that Whitehall rules overseen by the Advisory Council on Professional Appointments (ACOBA) mean Mr Johnson cannot sign a deal until December. A spokesman for the former prime minister declined to comment.
