Karren Brady CBE, Baroness of Knightsbridge and star of BBC’s The Apprentice, is visiting The University of Nottingham to deliver the first ever Chancellor’s Lecture on Thursday 26 March.
‘Playing to win: ambition, grit and a great pair of heels’ is open to the public, and will see Brady share experience, insights and anecdotes from her colourful career, as well as invaluable business advice. The lecture will be followed by a Q&A session, post-lecture refreshments and networking opportunities.
Karren Brady said: “I’m very excited and honoured to be speaking at The University of Nottingham as the first speaker in the Chancellor’s Lecture Series. I hope that through sharing my experiences in the business world, including some top tips I’ve learnt along the way, I can help inspire and motivate everyone who attends.”
The Chancellor’s Lecture Series promises to bring lectures from high-profile speakers to the University and wider society, and few rival the business profile of Karren Brady CBE, Vice-Chairman of West Ham FC, Senior Non-Executive Director of the Syco and Arcadia Boards, and Small Business Ambassador for the Conservative Party. Brady also appears as Lord Alan Sugar’s advisor on BBC’s The Apprentice and has won many awards over the years, including being named Business Woman of the Year and Most Inspirational Woman of the Year.
A unique and prolific career
Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir David Greenaway said: “It is a great pleasure to welcome Baroness Brady to the University for what promises to be a fascinating insight into a unique and prolific career.
“As part of the Chancellor’s Lecture Series, this lecture will give staff and students at the University and members of our wider community the opportunity to hear a motivational talk from one of Britain’s leading business figures.”
