Speaker(s) Sir Martin Sorrell, CEO WPP plc
Introduction by Professor Dominique Turpin, IMD President

Sir Martin Sorrell read economics at Cambridge before going on to study for his MBA at Harvard.  He joined Saatchi and Saatchi in 1975 and was Saatchi’s group finance director from 1977 to 1984. 
He took a controlling interest in Wire & Plastic Products, then a manufacturer of wire shopping baskets, and turned it into one of the world’s leading advertising and marketing services groups that has since spawned many of the industry's biggest and most admired agencies.  He was knighted in 2000 and received the Alumni Achievement Award from Harvard Business School in 2007.  He has served as an Ambassador for British Business and serves on the boards of several business schools.

Today, the WPP group employs 179,000 people in 111 countries, and its clients include 350 of the Fortune Global 500, all 30 of the Dow Jones 30, 63 of the NASDAQ 100 and 31 of the Fortune e-50.

Sir Martin is almost as famous for his bons mots as he is for his stellar business success and we are delighted that he has agreed to speak to the Club.  His talk will cover a wide range of topics.
