When they’re not conferring on the most pressing issues of the day in edge-of-your-seat debates with their fellow leading lights, our speakers also have the stage to themselves to offer their insights in our solo talks. It's the perfect opportunity to hear eminent authors, Cabinet ministers, revolutionary philosophers and scientists at the top of their field giving their take on the most urgent and fascinating topics facing the world today.

Recently our speakers have discussed everything from the perils of the gig economy to the meaning of the clothes we wear. We'll be announcing our first solo talks for Online 2020 very soon - you won't want to miss them.
