Each week we want to provide a platform for speakers to present their points-of-view, research, and expertise. After posing some controversial and thought-provoking questions we want to open up a debate amongst the speakers and close with an opportunity for Q&A from the audience.
Join us to challenge and discuss the ethos that underpins the industry and plays an important role in society.
