Following the enthusiastic feedback from our event in 2018, we are thrilled to announce the date of this year's St Laurence Ethics Forum. We are looking to build on the discussions led by last year's panel of distinguished guest speakers on the theme of "Ethics in Leadership."
Please note that the event will take place on the 2nd of May in Pall Mall, London. The colloquium will begin at 6:45pm and will be followed by drinks and canapés.

“The inaugural St Laurence Forum evening was a fascinating exploration of the ethical considerations that need to be given for those in leadership roles. The speakers were all engaging and open – and the discussion after the speeches was both insightful and challenging." Patrick Tolhurst (C99).
