Confirmed speakers are the Rt Hon John Denham MP (left), Shadow Secretary of State for Business Innovation and Skills, and Professor Paul Boyle (right), CEO of the ESRC. Sir Howard will also present new Academicians with their certificates.
Bookings are open online via the Events page of the Academy website. Tickets are £70 per head for two course hot buffet lunch with wine and coffee and an uparalleled opportunity to meet and network with other senior members of the social science community.
