The Great Minds series gives an insight into the achievements of leading influential figures and recognisable faces from backgrounds such as the arts, business and economics, politics, health and science as well as bringing more local leading Lecturers and Visiting Professors to the fore.

Designed for prospective students, our own staff and students and members of the public alike, the aim is to inspire and encourage thoughtful conversation about careers, industries and disciplines alongside showcasing some of the diverse research and activities that take place within the University.

We have the pleasure of inviting you to our next Great Minds lecture, to be given by Lord Paul Boateng on Friday 24th March.

Lord Paul Boateng, Chairman of the ESU, a former British high commissioner to South Africa, MP, cabinet minister and civil rights lawyer, now Labour peer and a trustee of the Planet Earth Institute, will join the University of Lincoln to reflect on the role of both formal and informal education in unlocking the potential for growth in nations and individuals.

Lord Boateng devotes his time to working in Africa, as a lawyer, business advisor, and for charity working on development, governance and youth issues. He speaks and works in the House of Lords on these issues.
