Pro Vice-Chancellor and Dean of Westminster Business School, Professor Malcolm Kirkup, opened the first MBA Tuesday Club of the 2016-17 programme. The talk entitled ‘Where There’s Waste, There’s Money’ was very well attended by current students, staff and alumni. 

The MBA Tuesday Club is a series of monthly events at Westminster Business School. Each event consists of guest speakers from the world of business who give an insight into a hot topic relevant to any business professional. The events provide an excellent opportunity for networking between current students, graduates and organisations.

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

In Professor Kirkup’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. The talk focused on this latter point and explored how a different perspective on waste can generate fascinating opportunities for new business enterprises. 

The next MBA Tuesday Club event will take place on Tuesday 29 November with Arthur Weiss, Westminster Business school MBA alumnus and Director of marketing intelligence consultancy AWARE, speaking on ‘Competitive Intelligence – A Roadmap to Building Competitive Advantage’.  The MBA Tuesday Club is aimed at Westminster Business school MBA alumni, MBA students and prospective students.
