This House Would Sell Out

“Are you law, consulting, or finance?”  Every year, bright students ‘sell out’ to the City.  Can the corporate world be a force for good, is the very notion of selling out an elitist one, or must we choose between money and morals?

Speakers in Proposition:

  • Jonathan Ruffer  :  Philanthropist and former stockbroker, who has invested £200million to revitalise the town of Bishop Auckland
  • Sharon Blackman  :  Managing Director and General Counsel at Citibank.  She chairs the Citi EMEA Pro Bono Committee

Speakers in Opposition:

  • Emma Slade  :  Former financial analyst who left the City for Bhutan, becoming the first and only Western woman to be ordained a Buddhist monk
  • Dave Erasmus  :  Social entrepreneur and founder of the online fundraising platform Given.  He is currently working on Corcovado, a collaborative global community

Due to Coronavirus restrictions, admittance to this debate will be strictly to those who have pre-registered for the event on FIXR.  The debate will also be available online.
