Flying the flag for published PROs everywhere, former BAA public affairs chief Des Wilson is about to release his second book on poker, having become an expert on the subject.

Wilson is now a non-executive director of fledgling PA agency Insights UK and is set to publish Ghost on the Table, a history of James Bond's favourite game.

Wilson did not say whether his previous experience at Heathrow and Gatwick owner BAA had helped him become such a poker expert.
