In a new direction for the Institute, the speaker will be from outside the industry.
Matthew Taylor, chief executive of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, will give his perspective on where the industry gets it right and wrong.
The two-hour event will allow time for questions. ITT chair Steven Freudmann said the annual event would see someone from outside the industry invited to speak about the business of travel.
“The Odyssey Suppers tend to have speakers from inside the industry talking about their lives within and thoughts about the industry. The ITT Lecture will be like the BBC’s Reith Lectures, which is very much an outsider’s point of view,” he said.
He added: “We need to get the outsider’s point of view as to whether we are getting it right or wrong, and who the future disruptors are likely to be, as there are enough of them.”
