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 at the next lecture in the Bristol Distinguished Address Series at UWE Bristol.

The Bristol Distinguished Address Series provides a unique opportunity to hear about the challenges, issues and decisions being made at the highest level of strategic leadership. The series is delivered by the Bristol Business School in partnership with ACCA, Bristol City Council, Bristol Junior Chamber, Bristol Post, Business West, CBI, CMI,FSB, IoD, ICAEW and the West of England LEP.

An audience of over 200 is expected including over 100 leaders from the business community, as well as local government leaders, UWE Bristol academics and alumni.

Following the talk, there will be an opportunity for the audience to put forward their issues and questions at this event.

The series of talks continue throughout the year and will feature Chairmen, CEOs and institutional leaders representing a variety of sectors. Forthcoming speakers include: Michael Ward, MD, Harrods (16/11) and Simon Belsham, CEO, notonthehighstreet.com (30/11).

Series organiser, Professor Nicholas O'Regan says, “We are delighted by the calibre of this year's speakers, the series is an excellent opportunity for members of the business community in Bristol, as well as our own students, alumni and staff to hear directly from inspirational figures in industry with a wealth of strategic experience and leadership skills at the highest level.”
