Sir Adrian Cadbury Lecture 2023
Join us for the highly anticipated Sir Adrian Cadbury Lecture 2023, where our distinguished speaker, Rt Hon Nadhim Zahawi MP, will present.
About this Event

In a world where a former President of the United States of America has been indicted on criminal charges, what is meant by “ethical moral leadership”?

In the UK, we have seen the NHS and local authorities in crisis, a failure in corporate governance in Coutts leading to resignations at the highest level in NatWest, including £1bn wiped off its share price, and “significant and systemic” weaknesses in governance at De Montfort University in regard to senior remuneration and conflicts of interest. In the US, the corporate governance nightmare that was the takeover of Twitter (now X) was matched by the $2 billion fine faced by Danske Bank following years of money laundering investigations and failings in risk management. There are many more examples...and a greater need than ever for principles-based leadership.

At the 7th Annual Sir Adrian Cadbury Lecture we will hear from the Rt Hon. Nadhim Zahawi, MP for Stratford upon Avon, about the vital importance of ethical and moral leadership, the pitfalls and the challenges.

Don't miss out on this amazing event!

The evening will commence with a welcome reception at 1700, where you will have the opportunity to network with like minded individuals. The welcome reception will take place in the MBA Lounge.

The lecture, which is taking place in the Sir Adrian Cadbury Lecture Theatre, will follow at 1800 with a talk by Rt Hon Nadhim Zahawi MP, a panel debate and Q&A. The event is due to finish at 1950.

If you are unable to make it in person you can watch the event online via our live stream. Just book a ticket for the online event on Eventbrite.

We do hope that you can join us.
