I am delighted to announce that Martha Lane Fox has very kindly agreed to give the Annual Lecture in March next year.
Martha is best known for co-founding Lastminute.com, an online travel and gift business that generated huge publicity and became an icon of the UK's dotcom boom. On leaving the business, Martha co-founded Lucky Voice, the karaoke bar chain and joined the boards of Marks & Spencer and Channel 4. In June 2009, she was appointed the UK Government's Digital Inclusion Champion and in March this year this role was expanded when it was announced that she would set up a new Digital Public Services Unit within the Cabinet Office.
The Company is very lucky to have secured such an eloquent and committed champion of the digital revolution to give next year's lecture. We don't have a confirmed date yet but keep checking this blog and the event pages of the website for details. The event is certain to be a sell-out - so please book early for yourself and your guests, both for the lecture and the dinner afterwards.
