Glaziers’ Hall, Montague Close, London

David Stringer-Lamarre, an alumnus of the Business School and a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Glaziers, was very pleased to attend this inaugural lecture of Imperial College’s new ‘City Lecture Series’.

On behalf of the Master Glazier, Duncan Gee, David welcomed the attendees to Glaziers’ Hall and provided some comments about the history of the Glaziers. He also spoke about the enduring link between the City of London, its Livery companies and Imperial College due to the City’s involvement with the creation of City & Guilds College in 1884, one of the founding colleges of Imperial College in 1907.

Professor Yip responded to the welcome and spoke about the work of Imperial College Business School.

Professor Phillips’ lecture looked at various changes and challenges related to the development of the digital landscape and people’s interaction with it. He spoke about how different age groups engaged with the digital world and how is was essential for business leaders to take this into account as they run and develop their organisations.
