Wingfield Digby Lecture
24th October 2019
I write to remind you that all girls are expected to attend the Wingfield Digby lectures in the Michaelmas and Hilary terms and that all family and friends are most welcome to attend as well. We start with drinks at 7.00pm and the lectures begins at 7.30pm. This year the lecture falls in the week immediately after half term on Tuesday 5th November.
This term we are lucky enough to have Michael Ramsden, the International Director for RZIM Zacharias Trust and has been part of the organisation since its foundation in Europe in 1997. He is joint Director of the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics.
Michael was brought up in the Middle East and later moved to England where he worked for the Lord Chancellor’s department investing funds. While doing research in Law and Economics at Sheffield University, he taught Moral Philosophy and lectured for the International Seminar for Jurisprudence and Human Rights in Strasbourg. He has also been a Scholar-in-Residence at the Wolfsberg Executive Development Centre in Switzerland.
Michael has been invited to lecture in various settings including the White House in Washington DC and has in the past addressed leaders at NATO HQ in Brussels, Members of the European Parliament, as well as bankers and investment managers on the recent global financial crisis. Michael is also involved in a number of initiatives to equip and train emerging leaders and evangelists throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Michael lives in Oxford with his wife, Anne, and their three children. He will be speaking on Is it right to feel wronged? a topic of great contemporary relevance.
We look forward to seeing you all there.
