Young Academic is delighted to report that tonight (25th October) sees the relaunch of a series of high profile debates presented by Bee Midtown in partnership with London’s Evening Standard.
London based students will be pleased to learn also that entry is free with registration. The kick-off topic is a big one and is set to get this year’s iteration of what has been a fascinating series of debates over the years, off to a tumultuous start.
The Midtown Big Ideas Exchange is London’s most dynamic series of debates, celebrating the eclectic innovation of Midtown and its people.
It bring’s together the brightest minds of the moment and is a space to rebelliously rethink London’s business, economic and social future; surely something students will be looking to engage in given the current social and political climate.
Launching with the biggest issue of the moment – Brexit – the discussion will focus on the legal, political and financial implications for London-based businesses, and how they can best navigate this changing landscape.
Created by Bee Midtown in partnership with Evening Standard and hosted at Conway Hall, the debate takes place on 25th October from 6.30-9.15 pm and will be chaired by Jim Armitage – City Editor, London Evening Standard. You can also read Jim’s views on the matter in more detail in his recent piece at the Midtown website.
The panellists for Future of London (Brexit) Debate are:
David Noon – Deloitte’s UK & Global Brexit Lead
Kate Maltby – Political and economic critic, columnist and scholar
Anthony Hilton – Finance Editor and Commentator, Evening Standard
Students will also be given the opportunity to meet and greet the panel afterwards and discuss their views on Brexit and any other topics that are hot on the academic agenda, particularly in the capital.
The event will also be streamed live on Facebook for students across the UK unable to attend what is certain to be a stellar event. Just head here.
