BBC business journalist Hugh Pym to visit Leeds Met
BBC Chief Economics Correspondent and published author, Hugh Pym, will discuss the 2008 banking crisis when he delivers a guest lecture at Leeds Metropolitan University.
A renowned financial and business journalist and published author, Hugh has been the Chief Economics Correspondent for the BBC News since 2009. He has worked in TV and radio since 1983 for some of the UK’s leading broadcasters including Channel 4, ITN and Sky.
Paul Houghton, a principal lecturer in Leeds Metropolitan’s Faculty of Business and Law, who has organised the lecture series, said: “As a leading financial journalist tasked with reporting the fallout of the 2008 banking crisis, during the lecture Hugh will examine the state in which financial institutions find themselves in today and how this affects each one of us.”
Hugh has published three books, co-authored with Nick Kochan: ‘The Guinness Affair’, ‘Gordon Brown, the First Year in Power’ and ‘What Happened? And other questions about the credit crunch’.
The event forms part of Leeds Business School’s free public guest lecture series and will take place on Tuesday 1 April from 6pm-7.30pm in the Rose Bowl. Places must be booked online.
