February 27th - BEGINNING
It's been a while, but here we are in 2019. A new beginning you might say. So that's it...beginnings. Tell us about something you started, why - and how it turned out. Or tell us about your plans for the new year - maybe your new beginning hasn't yet begun?
We're looking for speakers - get in touch!
Confirmed so far:
Sarah Meharg - Beginnings of a business
When Frederick Lanchester left his studies at the Normal School of Science in London in 1885, he had no job and no formal qualifications. But a move to the Midlands, a little help from his two brothers, and a ton of scientific talent ensured that he would go down in history as one of the most innovative inventors of the 20thcentury. InFredible! is the story of Coventry’s maddest unsung genius and of a groundbreaking multimedia project dedicated to restoring his legacy.
Kerry Blakeman - Droning on
Coventry the birthplace of the pedal cycle, home to the inventor of the jet engine, a forward thinking, innovative City you would think?
