The MacLaren Memorial Lecture: Carolyn Fairbairn
The MacLaren Lecture is an annual event held jointly by Aston University and the Chartered Management Institute. The event has run since 1953, and has attracted major speakers from business and industry. It commemorates the life of James MacLaren, one of the most eminent industrialists in Birmingham’s history. MacLaren was one of the founder members of the Birmingham branch of the Chartered Management Institute and was the first chair of the Birmingham College of Technology, an antecedent of Aston University. He was particularly known for developing links between industry and education.
This year's lecture will be given by Carolyn Fairbairn, CBI, Director-General and is entitled ‘Unlocking regional growth – spreading prosperity to the whole UK’
