Innovation, enterprise and a car in a field full of horses

Date/Time: Wednesday 15 March 2017, 17:45-20.30

Venue: Newcastle University Business School

Join us as we welcome Anthony Thomson, Founder and Chairman of Atom Bank at his inaugural lecture as the Business School’s David Goldman Visiting Professor of Innovation and Enterprise for 2017.

Replacing Harry Swan, managing director of Thomas Swan & Co Ltd, Anthony’s entrepreneurial thinking and innovative ways of doing business, made him the ideal candidate for the 2017 professorship.

This will be his first lecture in a series of events during 2017.  

During his time as David Goldman Visiting Professor, Anthony will also work alongside MBA students on an exciting business case competition, where students will be asked to consider global challenges that could affect Atom Bank, and recommend innovative solutions to those issues. This competition will conclude during the MBA’s Business in Action Week, which sees students working with a number of global businesses and putting what they have learned through academia into real world practice.
