Spring Forums 2019

 

Intelligence Forums runs a series of talks and forums in Leeds, Bristol, Solihull, Birmingham and London; featuring a variety of speakers from the field of Politics, Economics and Business (PEB Initiative). We normally convene for a short reception, followed by thirty or forty minutes of talks and then an informal discussion over refreshments.

Where members have overlapping interests we can organise smaller forums geared to the discussion of specific topics. Suggestions for these types of meetings may come from members themselves. Please contact Intelligence Forums if you have any ideas that you would like to develop. We promote thoughtful discourse, debate and a respect for counter views, as well as providing informed views on any given topic.

Meetings are hosted by prominent finance houses, banks, law firms and other professional service firms.

IF Solihull is hosted by Tony Elvin of Touchwood on 13th March at 4pm

Armageddon Britain. Britain appears broken. We have a Brexit stalemate, record low approval ratings for both major parties, austerity cuts have seemingly brought social services to the brink of collapse and homelessness is at an all-time high. We have lost a generation to a culture of gangs and knife crime and the Police have lost control of our streets.

That’s what the papers say.

How can the system be fixed? A new political party is emerging to challenge the status quo but can they ever make an impact in our two party system? What would you change tomorrow? Or is this all just a storm in a tea-cup perpetuated by the need to fuel 24 hour-a-day news channels?

Debate: It is often said that there is enough resource in the world to eradicate starvation and poverty but the gap between rich and poor seems to grow every year. Has the abolition of zero hour contracts and the annually increasing minimum wage improved the lives of our country’s lowest paid workers? Could we ever reach a stage where a global minimum wage could be introduced? What can be done to eradicate poverty in the West Midlands?
