…current topics with unconventional views!
Welcoming up to 500 delegates, Warwick Congress is one of the largest European, fully student-run university conferences. The three-day event takes two current affairs topics and looks to deepen students’ understanding from leading industry professionals in Finance, Economics, Law, and Politics. The topics due to be discussed by the 8 keynote speakers across the weekend are:
- Global Trade vs Embargoes: Temporary Fever or Long-Term Disruption?
- Social Media, the Making of New Politics
They will be analysed by an individual from each of the four disciplines; providing delegates an insight into how these issues shape our world. The topics will be addressed through the overarching theme of “Innovation: Preparing change and making change”. In addition to the talks, Warwick Congress will host seminars, panel debates and a careers fair for delegates to engage and network with firms. This unique proposal of academic discussions combined with invaluable networking opportunities makes Warwick Congress 2018 an unmissable event.
Innovation: Preparing Change and Making Change
- The ‘why’ is simple; we are in an age of technological advancement and resource scarcity. The prevailing force of high speed change is both our challenge as well as our opportunity. FinTech industries and competition in economic markets are spiked by unprecedentedly efficient and ecological productivity. Political revolutions flood timelines and streets alike, changing the way that we are informed. Media storms and cyber security threaten modern democracies, raising legal concerns of privacy in data use and the fairness of elections. Interconnectivity is key; restrictive immigration policies allow those innovative enough to capitalise with new socio-economic thinking. Innovation is our tool to form the future, yet innovation’s unpredictability means that to succeed in the future, we must create it. We’re excited.
There is no time like the present. Innovation’s unpredictability means that to succeed in the future, we must create it. We’re excited!
