His visit comes after the CBI held its annual conference earlier this week (16 to 18 November), putting out strong messages about world trade.
Digby Jones has been invited to give students in the Department of Management Studies direction on current trends and the future of business and management, to identify the qualities students need to prepare for the future, and to express the importance of business schools in readying them for their business careers.
Dr Tony Powell of the Department of Management Studies, said: "It is marvellous to have someone of Digby Jones's standing and high profile giving our inaugural lecture. He is a candid and enthralling speaker who travels around the world to press home British industry's views. Our students will have some very thought-provoking questions to put to him."
The inaugural lecture is by invitation only but the Department hopes that subsequent lectures will be open to an external audience.
