BBC journalist gives guest lecture
The event, which formed part of Leeds Business School's free public guest lecture series took place on Tuesday 1 April in the Rose Bowl.
A renowned financial and business journalist and published author, Hugh has been the Chief Economics Correspondent for the BBC News since 2009. He has worked in TV and radio since 1983 for some of the UK's leading broadcasters including Channel 4, ITN and Sky.
Paul Houghton, a Principal Lecturer in Leeds Metropolitan's Faculty of Business and Law, who has organised the lecture series, said: "As a leading financial journalist tasked with reporting the fallout of the 2008 banking crisis, during the lecture Hugh examined the state in which financial institutions found themselves in today and how this affects each one of us."
Hugh has published three books, co-authored with Nick Kochan: 'The Guinness Affair', 'Gordon Brown, the First Year in Power' and 'What Happened? And other questions about the credit crunch'.
