Hi my name is David, The London School of Economics run a series of free public lectures which are always well informed, engaging and entertaining. Speakers last year included experts such as Fabrizio Saccomanni the Minister of Economy and Finance in the Italian Government, members of The Bank of England, IMF, ECB and Borris Johnson (OK maybe they are not all experts).
I try to attend a few lectures every week. I usually arrive early and you can identify me as I will be carrying the latest copy of the economist. (this week's issue is nice and red so it should be easy to see me). It would also help if everyone from the group could do the same that way we can identify each other but if you don't have a copy of the economist don't worry we can just do what happens at most meet ups and look for the people with the 'are you in the meet up group' expression on their faces. Seats are filled on a first come basis so I would advise to arrive at least 20 minutes before the lecture is due to start.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
