Join us for this privileged evening with Lord Simon of Highbury, as he shares his wide experience of industry, government, banking and commerce. With a career founded on the always turbulent oil industry and more recently taking in banking, cars, and catering, he knows how the business world can change overnight. In government, his remits included the Treasury, advising the Cabinet Office and taking on the ever-topical challenges of the European Union.

David Simon (MBA 66) is a Director of the GDF Suez Group in Paris and an Advisory Board member of Dana Gas, and Montrose Associates. He is a member of the Board of Governors of the Institute for Government and a Trustee of the Institute for Strategic Dialogue. Previously, he has been Chief Executive and Chairman of BP, deputy chairman of the Unilever Group and a Non-Executive Director of the Bank of England, RTZ and Grandmet and a member of the advisory boards of Deutsche Bank, Allianz, Fortis and LEK, and the supervisory board of Volkswagen.

Lord Simon was appointed CBE in 1991, KBE in 1995 and entered the House of Lords in 1997, the same year in which he became Minister of State at the Treasury and Minister for Trade and Competitiveness in Europe at the DTI. He retired as a minister and from the Lords Front Bench in 1999 to become an advisor to the Cabinet Office. He was appointed to the three-man team advising on the impact of enlargement of the European Union.
