Sir Ben Kingsley Lectures

Warwick School has been holding lectures since 2003, most recently Terry Waite CBE, talked about negotiating for release of hostages and survival in solitude, and his account of negotiating in extreme situations and an insight into the way in which he was able to survive almost five years of solitary confinement.

Our next lecture is on Monday 8 October 2018, by Dave Coplin, author of two books on the need to rethink the use of technology in the modern world. His talk 'Rise of the Humans'  calls for both individuals and organisations to harness the digital deluge, to rise up and take back control of the potential that technology offers our society.
