NBS welcomes IoD Director General

On Thursday 3 March Nottingham Business School was pleased to welcome Simon Walker, Director General of the Institute of Directors, to deliver a Business Leaders Lecture on whether politics is becoming more or less friendly to business.

During the lecture, Simon touched on a variety of topics such as:

  • Lack of wage increases for employers
  • What needs to be done about the wage divide?
