“This compendious platform for debate forms a whirlwind of ideas and views. Speakers are shaken not stirred by irreverent audiences. A bit of ‘hold on tight’ experience where no one gets their own way.”
- Tony McGuirk, Chairman, BDP
"The Battle of Ideas goes from strength to strength. The intensity, variety and depth of debate, sustained for an entire weekend, makes for a unique experience charging the intellectual batteries for the rest of the year."
Raymond Tallis, emeritus professor of geriatric medicine, Manchester University
