Gresham College was founded in 1557 under the will of Sir Thomas Gresham for the purpose of providing free public lectures of a high academic standard. We continue to fulfill this role, with lectures at Barnard's Inn and the Museum of London, although we have dropped the original obligation to repeat each lecture in Latin. All lectures are streamed on line on the Gresham College Facebook page and via the Gresham College website. Past lectures and written transcripts are on the website for viewing and free download. Think of Gresham College as London's version of Ted Talks.

Thanks, Howard. The NEC, Ian Ritchie, is a shrewd investor and technology entrepreneur. I got involved when I saw he had been appointed Chair. The recent growth seem extraordinary, though, and the absence of RNS suggests it's multiple buyers driving it. Well, sometimes you just have to ride the good fortune, even if you don't understand it.
