World Traders 24th Annual Tacitus Lecture

Angela KnightGuildhall was resplendent yet again on Thursday night when the World Traders held their 24th Annual Tacitus Lecture there.

Angela Knight CBE talked on the subject ‘Is Energy Just Another Power Game?’

Although the short answer was Yes, as a master of her subject she went into sufficient detail to carry her arguments without boring the assembled throng (the Guildhall was full!) with charts statistics or graphs.  It was a great tribute to her oratory skills that she did not need or use visual aids, and was able to explain energy demand and supply and the many interlocking issues with great clarity and simplicity, so even the least informed of us felt we knew what was going on.

There were many old friends there from other Livery Companies, the Livery Committee, Aldermen and all – and of course the Lord Mayor Aldermen Fiona Woolf CBE introduced proceedings.
