On Thursday 30 September Gowling WLG are hosting a debate of the motion:
"This House believes London’s junior market has been a measurable success."
The debaters are: Marcus Stuttard, Head of LSE AIM, will propose the motion, seconded by Lisa Gordon, Chairman of Cenkos. Opposing the motion will be Gervais Williams, Head of Equities at Premier Miton, seconded by investment manager and commentator, Justin Urquhart Stewart.
This event - originally planned to coincide with the 25th anniversary of LSE AIM - will be chaired by Barry Gamble, chairman of The NED City Debates. Barry is a senior adviser to the Non-Executive Directors’ Association and has been chairman of a number of debates on board best practice.
The format of the event recognises the similarities between a debate and a boardroom. In each situation there must be careful listening, respect for the opposing view and an atmosphere of constructive challenge. While there should be no assumption that the debaters’ personal views do or do not coincide with the side of the motion for which they argue, good ideas and decisions will hopefully result through the careful examination of alternative views.
This is intended to be a refreshing change from the ubiquitous panels of experts. So without panels, Powerpoints, presentations or props of any kind the debate will rely on words alone and the passion, sensitivity and tone of the debaters' delivery to win the argument.
Registration will be at 17.00 and the pre-debate welcome from Charles Bond from Gowling WLG at 17:20. The debate will start promptly at 17:30 and latecomers will not be able to join while the principal debaters are speaking.
Attendees will receive a hard copy of the latest Gowling WLG AIM Handbook which has always proved popular for Nomads and others active in the AIM market.
