As a global company, operating in over 60 countries worldwide, SABMiller is delighted to be sponsoring this year’s Battle of Ideas. The issues debated are not unique to the UK. They are global. Capitalism, art, philosophy, the impact of emerging markets, current affairs, sport and parenting are all issues which touch people in one way or another throughout the world. I have no doubt that every participant will come away from the event armed with new ideas and a fresh perspective on many of the tough global issues that touch our lives everyday.
Graham Mackay, Chief Executive, SABMiller
"For one weekend in the year, in the centre of London, it's as if ideas matter, it's as if the world really can be made a better place through the free and energetic exercise of reason."
