Business Society welcomes Professor Shackleton
The first Business Society event of the year was held on the 15 October in the Apthorp Room. The guest speaker was Professor Shackleton from the University of Buckingham and member of the Institute of Economic affairs.
He gave an insightful lecture on the state of the UK labour market, with particular reference to the risks of automation and AI removing jobs. His conclusions, backed by empirical research, reassuringly pointed to the fact that we are far from at risk as more jobs are currently being created than destroyed.
He then fielded questions from an enthusiastic audience made up of A Level Business and Economics students.
Mr Flindall presented five students with the prestigious Business and Economics tie (and badge for girls): Zara Nimmo, Sam Gaeton, Arran Kanth, Harshil Vachhani, Zac Alalouf, and Joon Haan.
We very much look forward to the next Business Society gathering on the 25th November.
