Building on our first debate, what are the abiding lessons learned so far from the crisis, and what will be the consequences for the long-term health and welfare of our nations? How will we tackle the stresses of unemployment, business failures, loss of time at school, mental health? What will be the priorities for spending and investment by public sectors facing financial perils? Where can the voluntary and charity sectors best contribute to recovery?

To discuss these and other questions raised by British Spanish Society members our panel comprises:

  • Dame Mary Marsh (London), one of the UK’s most influential charity and business sector leaders: Non-Executive Director of HSBC Bank plc; a member of the Governing Body at London Business School; Chair of Trustees at the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health; Trustee of Teach First; and Director on the Board of the London Symphony Orchestra
  • Ana Romero Galan (Madrid), distinguished international correspondent and acclaimed autor.
  • Miguel Otero-Iglesias (Madrid), leading international economist, Senior Analyst at the Elcano Royal Institute and Professor at the IE School of Global and Public Affairs. He is also Research Associate at the EU-Asia Institute at ESSCA School of Management in France.

The debate will be hosted and chaired by Jimmy Burns Maranon, Chairman of the British Spanish Society.
