11th April 2018: External Event – Bristol Distinguished Address Series Talk with Tim Parker – Bristol

Tim Parker, Chairman of the Post Office, will deliver a lecture entitled ‘Aligning Interests: Lessons from the world of Private Equity’ as part of the Bristol Distinguished Address Series (BDAS).

One of the advantages of the private equity model of ownership is that management team of an investment are offered a stake in the business. This leads a direct alignment of interest between investors and managers. The private equity model has proved extremely successful for investors and my intention is to explore it in more depth, and to look at examples of other organizations in the public and private sectors that might benefit from better alignment of interest between managers, funders and consumers.

This series of free public lectures hosted by the University of the West of England provides a unique opportunity to hear from top level business leaders on the challenges and decisions they face at the highest level of strategic leadership.

These evening talks are free for all to attend and will provide an excellent opportunity for you to broaden your corporate network and enable you to develop your business knowledge.
