The Annual Grigor McClelland lecture will be given by Martin Wolf, Chief Economics Commentator at the Financial Times.

This lecture series was introduced in our 50th Anniversary year in 2015 in honour of the School’s founding Director, Professor Grigor McClelland. During his twelve years as Director and Professor of Business Administration at Manchester Business School, Grigor shaped management and education for the next generation. He was a strong advocate of the principle that business cannot be divorced from society and that managers should be ethical and socially responsible.

Our previous guest speakers for this lecture series, include Co-op Group’s CEO Steve Murrells; Sir George Bain, former Chair of the Low Pay Commission which introduced the Minimum Wage in 1998; Craig Bennett, Chief Executive of Friends of the Earth; Torsten Bell, Director of the Resolution Foundation and Anna Dixon, Chief Executive of Ageing Better. All have based the core themes of their lectures on this principle.

Martin has written extensively on the social context of capitalism and finance and will be discussing with us how we can make finance socially useful.
