Studium II Speaker Programme Features Industry Leaders

9th February 2023

Luminaries, leaders and pioneers in a wide variety of industries are set to convene at Winchester for an afternoon of remarkable lectures.

Our list of speakers includes the speaker, author and current Consultant Physician in Respiratory Medicine Isobel P Williams; the Chief Features Writer for the Financial Times, Mr. Henry Mance; the soldier, author and commentator Major General Patrick Cordingly; and serial inventor and entrepreneur Dr Jonathan Ingram.

Returning from the front line in Ukraine, Mr. David Fox-Pitt will explain what has driven him and his team of volunteers to serve over 500,000 pizzas to those living in the shadow of the Russian invasion.

Studium is one of the highlights of the academic year, an afternoon when Wykehamists are dismissed from their classes and get to listen to leading experts in their fields.
