    Diversity is no longer an optional matter of gender or culture, it is part of what defines each individual and how successful companies think. Around the world, employee ideas have opened new doors, dramatically improved company performance and helped save billions.

    Samir will share his experience and the measures Amec Foster Wheeler is taking to create a business culture with genuine, value adding diversity of thought; where different views and opinions are listened to, considered appropriately and not simply dismissed.

  • Financing British Companies: evolution or revolution?: Sir Howard Davies, Chairman of the Royal Bank of Scotland

    Date: 09 March 2016
    Venue: UWE Bristol Exhibition and Conference Centre, Frenchay Campus

    RBS remains the largest provider of finance for British companies, though it is smaller than it was before the crisis and bailout. But how is the financing landscape for British companies changing? New 'challenger banks' have come on the scene, together with a range of new types of provider – peer to peer tenders, crowd funding etc.

    Sir Howard's lecture will discuss how should firms try to navigate through this more complex marketplace.

  • The Future of Nuclear: Lady Barbara Judge CBE, Chair of the Institute of Directors

    Date: 13 April 2016
    Venue: UWE Bristol Exhibition and Conference Centre, Frenchay Campus

    Successive governments have claimed support for renewing the UK's ageing nuclear energy infrastructure, but progress to date has been slow. Hinkley point C will be a massive engineering challenge, requiring significant funding from China, but it can only be the first of a new generation of nuclear stations.

    Lady Barbara Judge CBE will look at the state of play when it comes to nuclear power, and the issues governments face when deciding to build new power plants.
