RACHEL MAUNDER HOSTS THE MIKADO
We know how hard it is to enter a room where you don't know anybody so we make it easier for you. The time is built around a topic so that everyone moves around the room to discuss it. No awkward small talk required. It's a bit like speed dating for business and we have lots of fun doing it.
Rachel will help us to conquer our self-doubt and help us to meet everyone in the room.
Roger Bootle is the founder and chairman of Capital Economics, one of the largest macro-economics consultancies in the world.

He has written several books, including his widely acclaimed latest book, Making a Success of Brexit, and the prophetic The Death of Inflation, published in 1996.
Roger was a Specialist Adviser to the House of Commons Treasury Committee for twenty years from 1997 to 2017. Under Chancellor Kenneth Clarke, he was appointed to the panel of Independent Economic Advisers, the so-called “Wise Men”.

Here is who we have lined up for the coming months:
June 13 - Steve Bustin on identity fraud
