Thursday, July 18, 2019: Positive Money Greenwich & Lewisham: Open Forum Evening – 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM, The Prince of Greenwich, 72 Royal Hill, Greenwich, SE10 8RT. So far, the usual format of our monthly meetings has been that we choose a speaker and subject and hope that it attracts an interested audience. This month we are going to try a different format: an Open Forum! There are more than enough interesting new topics floating around that we could and probably should discuss. here are some we’ve thought up: – Has the City got a future post-Brexit ? – Can the Bank of England be above politics ? – Will Libra re-define money ? So, Mike and Tim invite you to bring, present and explore your own pet subject. If needed, we will kick things off, but our past experience is that discussion is still going strong when it is time to go home! So, come and be prepared to air and defend your chosen position on any (money-related) subject against all comers. We look forward to another evening of lively discussion. Mike and Tim. RSVP via Meetup.
