JLA’s Speakers Breakfasts give event organisers and producers a free opportunity to see speakers in action before making a booking. Each year we host a Spring and Autumn season to showcase motivators, trends experts and business leaders – as well as the latest ‘movers and shakers’ and exciting new names to join the circuit.
SHOWING ALL DECEMBER 2010
Unsurprisingly our theme was 'The Outlook For 2011' - with the Economics Editor of the Sunday Times, the head of Oxford University's 21st Century School (and former VP of the World Bank) and the last Chairman of the Inland Revenue.
A little background on the speakers...
In his Sunday Tmes column, David Smith was one of the first to predict a V-shaped recovery though he was careful to say it will take time to become discernible to business and the public. He has since published The Age of Instability.
During his term at the World Bank, Ian Goldin was responsible for the relationship with the UK and Europe. He had previously served as CEO of the Development Bank of South Africa (and advisor to Nelson Mandela), and Programme Director for the OECD in Paris.
Before transforming the Revenue, Sir Nicholas Montagu played a leading role in several controversial issues - like rail privatisation and public service reform. His solutions for a public sector facing unprecedented cuts: outsource non-core activity, find synergies and stop re-inventing the wheel.
