Making the World a Better Place

On 26th October Lord Bilimoria, who was a great friend of our founder – Helen Taylor Thompson, RIP – and remains one of our Patrons, delivered the first Helen Taylor Thompson memorial lecture.

The event was streamed live from the offices of KPMG, and addressed the theme of “making our world a better place”.

Lord Bilimoria is currently the President of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and spoke about the importance of forging deeper partnership between the charity and business sectors. The lecture was followed by a Q&A session, with a panel from across the sectors.
