What Does It Mean to be British?
In a provocative keynote address, Robert McCrum, associate editor of The Observer and author of Globish, argues that it is not a suicide mission to define Britishness in terms of our inheritance and that, properly expressed, the definition can be a passport to a renewed and vigorous participation in global affairs. Having analysed what he calls the seven ages of Britishness, McCrum demonstrates how modern Britons, free at last from the taint of imperialism, are becoming citizens of a new world of innovation and opportunity. Chaired by Martin Davidson, Chief Executive of the British Council.
