Port Talks at Goodenough College

Throughout the year, the Dean, assisted by the Members of the College’s Academic Committee, invites prestigious speakers to give lectures – known as Port Talks.

This distinguished speaker series, features business leaders, current and former Government officials and best-in-field cultural practitioners. Previous Port Talk speakers include the Chief Justice of the UK Supreme Court, the Ambassador of Japan to the Court of St James, and Nobel Prize winner Sir Paul Nurse – who is also a Fellow of the College.

The most formative event I’ve attended so far was a Port Talk by Alan Rusbridger, former editor of the Guardian. Not only did I come away with new insights into the state of journalism today, but I was also inspired to begin writing journalistic pieces.
