ESCP's Economy 21st Series
Created by the London campus of ESCP, the Economy 21st series of lectures provides a high-profile platform for industry leaders and influential thinkers in the world of business. ESCP has hosted Economy 21st for the last eight years, and was proud to welcome guest speakers covering topics from the fields of Marketing, HR, Finance, Energy and Sustainability.
On Tuesday, 12th March the Economy 21st lecture featured Richard Sadler, CEO and Executive Director of Lloyd's Register Group Limited.
Richard talked from the point of view of CEO of an extremely international organisation that has to deal with business leaders, senior government officials and academics worldwide. He has to cope with the shift of economic and trading power towards the East and towards other Emerging Markets, and the role of UK and European industry in this new environment. As a City of London institution for more than 250 years, Lloyds Register, along with other London institutions, has to constantly transform and change its global strategies to compete and survive.
The lecture was followed by a formal question and answer session, allowing for a lively discussion of the theories presented, and after this a more informal opportunity to mingle over refreshments.
