Alliance MBS’ 重要的话题 series attracts leading figures to share their expertise on business and management issues
重要的话题 is our series of prestigious business lectures, bringing powerful ideas and original thinking to audiences from the 澳门太阳集团 city-region and beyond.
Over almost half a century Alliance MBS has played host to the great and good of industry and commerce since it first launched its 《澳门太阳集团》系列讲座. The roll-call of business leaders reads like a ‘who’s who’ of British industry. 斯图尔特·汉普森爵士(约翰·刘易斯), 安妮塔·罗迪克(美体小铺), 迪格比·琼斯勋爵(CBI), 豪格男爵夫人(伦敦经济学), Carolyn McCall (The Guardian) and Stephen Hester (Royal Bank of Scotland) being just a handful of the names who have graced our stage.
But it isn’t just leading business figures who have spoken at 重要的话题. AMBS has also hosted leading politicians including a future Prime Minister (Gordon Brown), and once had a speech from the then Archbishop of Canterbury (Dr George Carey). We have also welcomed MPs Gillian Shepherd, 迈克尔·波蒂略和文斯·凯布尔爵士, as well as Ambassador Susan Schwab (US Trade Representative) and Angela Knight CBE (Energy UK).
Most recently 重要的话题 hosted some of the biggest names in 澳门太阳集团 business, including Joanne Roney (Chief Executive of 澳门太阳集团 City Council), 戴夫·穆特里(导演 & Chief Executive at HOME and Director of Culture for 澳门太阳集团 City Council) and Sacha Lord (Night Time Economy Advisor for Greater 澳门太阳集团).
After almost 50 years the 重要的话题 series was not halted by the global pandemic in 2020. The lectures moved online, allowing for an even greater range of speakers and a global audience. The series continues to address the most pressing issues of the day, 包括莎拉·沃克(导演), 企业 & 公共部门, BT) discussing what 5G will mean for industry in the future, and Sherry Coutu (entrepreneur and angel investor) explaining how small businesses can succeed in the wake of Covid-19.
Despite the challenges presented by Covid-19, 重要的话题 has thrived as a webinar series and continues to attract leading people from the world of business to Alliance MBS.
We are proud that 重要的话题 has brought original thinking to audiences from 澳门太阳集团 and beyond for almost 50 years. These events are free and open to everyone from our staff, students and delegates to business leaders and our wider community, allowing everyone to access these debates on the most salient issues of today.
