Stock market boss in Shropshire

By Sue Austin | Oswestry | Education | Published:

The former head of the London Stock Exchange will be in Shropshire next month.

Xavier Rolet, also a world class winemaker, is guest speaker at Moreton Hall’s Annual Business Lunch.

He will look at the EU debate the Bitcoin world and the rise of China.

The prestigious Moreton Hall Business Lunch is an annual event which, over the last eight years, has become a firm fixture in the business diaries of Shropshire and regional business leaders.

Past guest speakers include Old Moretonians Zanny Minton Beddoes, Editor of The Economist and Fiona Marshall, Brand Marketing Director of ASOS.

Last year, the Guest Speakers were Nick Wheeler, Founder and Chairman of Charles Tyrwhitt Shirts and Lord Hague, former leader of the Conservative Party, Foreign Secretary and Leader of the House.

Mr Rolet will have the chance to hear from Moreton Enterprises, the unique business venture run by the Year 12 girls. They will give their annual business presentation outlining their sales strategy for the year.

School Principal, Jonathan Forster, said: "The Business Lunch - sponsored for the fifth year by Investec Wealth and Investment Ltd, the international specialist banking and asset management group - is a wonderful opportunity for business leaders to network, promote their company and to hear the most up to date economic and political opinions."

The event involves networking and drinks at 11.30am followed by a luncheon and presentations from speakers at 12.30pm. Tickets are selling fast and places are limited. To book, please contact Megan Ford on
