William Hague to speak on ‘The Post-Brexit World’ at Moreton Hall Investec Wealth & Investment Business Lunch

The list of former guest speakers is begining to look like a Question Time panel. Economist editor Zanny Minton Beddoes and former director general of the CBI, Lord Digby Jones, number among those who’ve addressed local and regional business leaders at Moreton Hall's annual business lunch. Now it’s the turn of William Hague, former Foreign Secretary and leader of the Conservative Party, who comes to the Shropshire school on 17th March.

Lord Hague of Richmond, to give him his full title, is also an acclaimed political biographer who scooped the History Book of the Year title in 2005 with his biography of William Pitt the Younger. But for this year’s business lunch, sponsored by Investec Wealth & Investment for the fourth year running, he’ll be speaking on ‘The Post-Brexit World’, as the UK government prepares to trigger Article 50 later in the month, formally starting the process of leaving the EU.

“The business lunch is a wonderful opportunity to network with other business leaders, and to hear the informed views of a renowned leading world politician,” says Moreton Hall principal Jonathan Forster. “It’s a prestige event.”

Tickets for the business lunch are priced at £35 each, with tables of 10 priced at £320. Proceeds go towards the Moreton Hall Scholarships Fund. For more information, or to book tickets, tel: 01691 773671 or email Melissa Evans on evansm@moretonhall.com
