October TNG - Paul Goodman - Where's Britain Going?

The Adam Smith Institute will open its doors once again on 8th October to enjoy some policy chat over a few glasses of wine.

This October we are excited to welcome Paul Goodman to ASI HQ. Paul Goodman is currently the editor of the popular blog site ConservativeHome. Prior to this he was MP for Wycombe from 2001 to 2010 and also served as Shadow Minister for Business, Innovation and Skills for a few years.

He will be speaking on the current state of the Tory party after the annual conference. He will also discuss the state of the nation as we approach Brexit on the 31st.

A bit more about these meetings:

The Next Generation events (or TNGs as we like to call them) are aimed at creating a network of young people (under 30s) interested in ideas that are shaping our world. They’ve been going for as long as the ASI has, and have been attended by people who went on to become Cabinet Ministers, Prime Ministers, Editors, and CEOs. The Tory and Labour spinner who dated on The Thick of It met at a TNG, according to an old BBC backstory document. So whatever your politics, we just like interesting ideas and we hope you do too. It’s for under 30s, it’s informal, it includes free wine and we normally end up at the Marquis of Granby afterwards.


Date: Tuesday, 8th October

Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm (don’t come before 6pm - we won’t let you in! Even if it’s raining… our house, our rules)
