Roger Phillips, LJMU Honorary Fellow and radio broadcaster will present a lecture entitled The BBC and Local Radio - the People’s Voice? The changing face of the BBC over the years and, in particular, the development of local radio with particular reference to phone-in programmes such as the one I’ve presented for almost 40 years.
Roger Phillips was born in Manchester, went to Cambridge University and then arrived in Liverpool as an actor in the early 1970s to join the Everyman Theatre - and fell in love with the city. He subsequently worked as a hackney cab driver, before falling by chance into local radio (BBC Radio Merseyside) in 1978, where he still presents a daily phone-in programme.
Ian Smith from IBM will be giving a presentation on 'Qualities of an innovator'.
Ian will be looking into what makes an innovator and how can you bring this into your day to day work life, a career, or specialist field. He will give examples of how being innotive in his job and life has helped him get to where he is. It will be an inspiring and eye opening presentation, followed by a Q & A session and networking.
Judy Chicago will be in conversation with Kasia Redzisz (Senior Curator at Tate Liverpool) on the occasion of Chicago's Sgt. Pepper Commission in Liverpool, Fixing a Hole.
Chicago will discuss her Liverpool commission, in what will be her largest painting to date. The spectacular mural will be installed on the walls of the White Tomkins and Courage Silo, Stanley Dock, Liverpool.
Nanomedicine uses particles designed to target specific problems such as tumours, and are able to remain in the body for long periods. In the future, nanosized materials may be used by many technological platforms and will provide exciting opportunities to revolutionise the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
