SABMiller

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.

"The Battle of Ideas is a global treasure. Bringing together some of the world's leading thinkers for civil dialogue on an array of topics, the festival is a must-see for those deeply committed to the free exchange of ideas."
Fredrick C. Harris, professor of political science, Columbia University
