We are delighted to announce that the new Dean of Westminster Business School, Malcolm Kirkup, will be the opening guest speaker at the first MBA Tuesday Club of the 2016–17 programme. 

About the talk

In Malcolm’s view, business has a major role to play in leading the way to more responsible management of resources – business leaders as stewards of not just financial, but also social and natural capital. Malcolm’s talk will focus on this latter point and explore how a different perspective on waste can generate fascinating opportunities for new business enterprise. 

Drawing on the theory of the ‘circular economy’ and lessons from businesses around re-manufacturing, re-purposing, up-cycling and industrial symbiosis, Malcolm will explore the scope for new customer value, new revenue streams and cost savings through innovative approaches to waste. 

Malcolm will present case examples that will range from the sustainable practices of corporate giants such as Canon, to new business models such as fashion start-up Elvis & Kresse and beer brewer Toast.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A session and an opportunity to network over drinks and canapes.
