Earlier this week, Nick Robins, author of The Corporation that Changed the World (Pluto, 2012), held a breakfast event as part of the promotion for the second edition of his definitive book.
It was hosted by Long Finance, who wrote of the occasion, that:
‘The themes of The Corporation that Changed the World – longevity, modern corporate development and the ultimate descent into financial corruption – chime with many of the concerns of Long Finance. We are delighted for the opportunity to host an open discussion with the author of this interesting and important book.’
The event was a great success, in terms of attendance, sales made and facts learned. The beautiful and informative slides from Nick’s presentation have been made available on the Long Finance website, and can be accessed here. We’ve also reproduced a few in this post to give you a flavour. You can buy the book from our website for just £16 including free UK P&P. Check out the details below.
