Join us for a delicious three course lunch with Lord O’Neill of Gatley.

A former government minister and chairman of Goldman Sachs asset management Lord O’Neill is the man who coined the acronym BRiC that stands for the then trailblazing countries Brazil, Russia, India and China. The paper he wrote on the topic is seminal. He is currently the vice chair of the northern powerhouse partnership and chairman of the council of Chatham House, the Royal institute of international affairs.

We will hear from Lord O’Neill on the challenges of levelling up in the North and greater devolution together with his views on the global economy and the impact of current events in this wide ranging conversation with Sir Richard Lambert, Chair of Bradford Literature Festival and Bloomsbury Publishing Group, former Chair of British Museum, Director General of CBI and Editor of the Financial Times.

Concession tickets for this event will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
