The Warwick Congress Corporate Showcase Event was an impressive display of what to expect from us in the future – and it was only just a glimpse!
“Over 90 delegates from both the academic and the corporate world to attend our first ever event…”
On 28th October 2016 Warwick Congress welcomed over 90 delegates from both the academic and the corporate world to attend our first ever event. Delegates not only from the University of Warwick, but also from the London School of Economics and London Cass Business School, attended the insightful panel debate on: the implication of the US presidential elections.
The implications on foreign policy, global markets and how we understand democracy itself were among the many topics discussed by our diverse panel. A spectacle like the one we are experiencing in the US can only be understood when addressed from a multitude of perspectives, hence each panelist represented one of our four academic streams of Politics, Economics, Law and Finance. This is precisely what Warwick Congress aims to do – give a broad and holistic view to such impactful current affairs.
Read below what Brian Klaas, moderator of the debate and former US campaign advisor to the Democrats has to say about Warwick Congress:
“Warwick Congress is an exciting up and coming group of bright minds that are engaged in understanding and improving the world. Their events are well-organized, and well-run, but above all they bring diverse backgrounds to bear on difficult but important issues. This is precisely the sort of thing that helps ensure that young people are not idle passengers of change but act instead as agents of it.”
