Business School Distinguished Lecture Series: Future Impacts
From the ongoing ripples of the 2008 financial crisis to Brexit and the rise of Donald Trump, we are living through a period of increased instability perhaps not seen since the cold war. Against a backdrop of austerity, insecurity and profound technological change we ask six experts from across the worlds of business, journalism and activism what they think the 21st century may herald for us across a range of subjects?
As we try to identify and explain what these changes and upheavals mean and where they may lead, so we engage with some of the bigger questions and topics relevant to not only to the university community but the wider world beyond.
The series is hosted by Tim Evans, Professor of Business and Political Economy at Middlesex University. Professor Evans brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the Series and the University as whole having previously been President and Director General of the Centre for the New Europe (2002-2005) in Brussels, Executive Director of Public Affairs at the Independent Healthcare Association in London and Head of the Slovak Prime Minister's Policy Unit in Bratislava. Prior to this, Professor Evans was Assistant Director of the Foundation for Defence Studies in London. He holds an MSc and a PhD from the London School of Economics as well as an MBA from the Open University Business School.
