The Lord Mayor of London: Reflections on a medieval role in the modern City

Sir John Stuttard

The position of the Lord Mayor of London has existed since 1189 and has always been one of the most important roles in maintaining London as the prime international financial capital in the world.

As the 679th Lord Mayor, John Stuttard attended nearly 2,000 engagements, including 466 formal lunches and dinners, 764 speeches and 133 media interviews. He hosted visiting foreign Ministers, businessmen and dignitaries and he spent more than 100 nights abroad in 23 countries promoting the financial, maritime and other business services industry of the UK. Every day was different; every day was special.

This talk looks at the reasons behind the City of London becoming the Financial Centre of the World, what the key success factors, opportunities and threats are, and what the role of the Lord Mayor is as the champion of the City both ancient and modern.
