Breakfast Briefing Series

LSE aims to strengthen its links with business by exploiting its special position as an independent neutral forum for discussion at the nexus of public life. Normally chaired by Peter Sutherland, Chair of the LSE Governors, these exclusive off-the-record meetings are held in private, and between 20 and 30 individuals are invited.
