"CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE FUTURE OF DEMOCRACY WILL TOP THE BILL"

Following the success of our first Creating the Future Conference in 2018, we are pleased to be hosting a second conference on Tuesday, 1st October at the Institution of Engineering and Technology.
 
The impact of the first conference on our clients was considerable.  Over half the guests that attended said afterwards that the event had significantly affected their outlook on the future.
 
“Such food for thought for all of us - struggling to balance moral responsibility with ambition” said one client. 

“My mind was opened to new ideas which I had not fully considered before, or discarded, especially important as the father of two” said another.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Speakers about the environment this year will include the lawyer James Thornton, CEO of ClientEarth.  Founding member of Extinction Rebellion, Dr Gail Bradbrook, will be interviewed by climate change expert Dr Gabrielle Walker.  Scientist Giulio Boccaletti will argue that scarcity of water is the biggest threat to global security. 
 
Neurologist Siddarthan Chandran believes disruptive technologies like stem cells may provide the answer to repairing brain damage.  Maxine Mackintosh believes that the data we generate as we go about our daily lives (shopping, banking, streaming and more) can be used to predict and prevent diseases. Tim Spector, Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College, London, will discuss the impact of food on our bodies and the importance of microbiomes.
 
David Runciman, Head of the University of Cambridge’s Department of Politics and International Studies will outline how the generation divide is at the heart of the fight over Brexit and the rise of populism around the world.   Carole Cadwalladr will discuss what happens to a western democracy when a hundred years of electoral laws are disrupted by technology.

GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND

“Creating the Future typifies what the Bank stands for.  We are about being a trusted adviser to our clients, helping to stimulate discussion and debate about important issues that will affect them and future generations of their families.
 
“This year we not only have twelve fascinating speakers who are all leading experts in their chosen field, but we are also delighted to have six like minded partners to ensure we reach an even bigger audience:   Mishcon de Reya, American Express, Berry Bros & Rudd, Charity:Water,  Huntsman and Arksen.
