Regular events

Digital Debates is an established series of events organised by The Business School. During the events we discuss and debate topical issues related to Internet and related technologies. We typically organise 3-4 events a year.

In the past 4 years we have debated, among other topics, the opportunities and challenges of electronic marketing, the relationship between social media and the London riots, the impact on cloud computing, and the future of mobile technologies.

Our events, often organised in collaboration with local business associations, attract North-East practitioners who have an interest in digital technologies, offering a great opportunity for networking with a distinct character.

Why not join us in one of our future Digital Debates, sharing with us your passion about digital innovations? Simply email savvas.papagiannidis@ncl.ac.uk and we will get back to you as soon as we have the details for the next Debate.

NIBE logoEthics Forum – a lively discussion forum, featuring prominent guest speakers, exploring how ethical issues impact on everyday business management and corporate policy.

The Newcastle University Business School Ethics Forum is a key player in the activities of the Newcastle Institute for Business Ethics (NIBE).

Events are open to business people, individuals and academics from the North East region and beyond, to bridge the gap between academic theory and organisational practice.

Working together and leveraging our networks, we want to provide an opportunity for businesses large and small, academics, professionals and representatives from the public and voluntary sectors to meet on neutral ground, query existing practice and put ethics at the centre of decision-making.
