A Q&A with journalist and author Iain Martin
Date: Wednesday 6th November 2013
Location: House of Commons Committee Room 6
City Future invites you to attend a Q&A with journalist, editor and author Iain Martin about his newly released book Making it Happen: Fred Goodwin, RBS and the Men Who Blew Up the British Economy. Making it Happen is a gripping account of the near-collapse of RBS, and the story of how the bank and Fred Goodwin marched over the edge of the cliff to financial oblivion.
Iain Martin is a successful journalist, editor and now author. A graduate of Glasgow University, he has worked for a number of successful publications as a journalist and editor, including the Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Telegraph, Wall Street Journal Europe and Scotland on Sunday.
This Q&A will be moderated by Jonathan Isaby, political director at The TaxPayers’ Alliance and former co-editor of the popular and influential ConservativeHome website.
