The Edge Annual Lecture 2015 will take place on Tuesday 13th November at Glaziers Hall, London.
The keynote speaker will be Nicholas Wyman, whose phrase “people without jobs and jobs without people” sums up the skills gap conundrum: at a time of growing skills shortages, there are still high levels of youth unemployment and graduate under-employment in many parts of the English-speaking world.
After delivering his lecture, Nicholas will join a guest panel to debate the issues with the audience.
