2023 – with John Cotton

We were delighted to host the 5th annual Chamberlain Lecture at the iconic Highbury Hall in Birmingham, delivered by the Leader of Birmingham City Council, Councillor John Cotton.

The building was commissioned as Joseph Chamberlain’s residence in 1878 and represented the perfect location for this year’s event.

Cllr Cotton followed a great lineage of previous speakers and did not disappoint as his inspiring speech encompassed leadership, and how it is defined by the challenges it faces. He spoke candidly about improving the places we live, work and raise children in order to create an environment where transformational initiatives can flourish.
