ANNA IRRERA- As a journalist for Financial News, a Dow Jones newspaper in London, she writes about FINTECH and Market Structure. The role of FINTECH will be playing a crucial role in the financial world over the coming years so it will be invaluable to hear what Anna has to say!

Tim Harford

October 7 2014

On TUESDAY 7th OCTOBER we kicked off our 2014/5 speaker series with a bang with our key note speaker TIM HARFORD!!

As the author of ‘THE UNDERCOVER ECONOMIST’ he’s on pretty much every university’s prereq reading list in the country. He works with the BBC, writes for the FT, Forbes, NY times and the Washington post and is also an award-winning speaker. More intuitively, via emails, he just seems like a really decent guy.

We’ve been pestering him for YEARS to come and talk, and 2014 is the year he’s finally given in following the release of his latest book: THE UNDERCOVER ECONOMIST STRIKES BACK.

THE FIRST 250 ARRIVALS ALSO RECEIVED A FREE CITI PAPERPAD AND PEN (***new and exciting***) to make note of anything Harford’s got you musing over.

More coming soon
