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 against the Fates

"The Battle of Ideas gives a forum for the most topical of debates and the healthy exchange of ideas - in our session what interested most was the contributions from the floor, also just the sheer buzz of the crowds in the foyers."
Jeremy Musson, writer and historic buildings consultant; former architectural editor, Country Life
