Tim Harford at the Royal Institution

The PBE lecture with Tim Harford will be held at the Royal Institution's Faraday Theatre on Wednesday, February 10th. This event is kindly sponsored by Nomura.

Tim Harford is an economist, Financial Times journalist and author of the Undercover Economist series. Tim has also presented the BBC Radio 4 show “more or less” since 2007.

Looking at how charities utilise statistics in order to garner wider support, Tim will talk about instances where charities employ unsubstantiated figures that may ultimately damage their public image in a style similar to his show “more or less.”

Tim’s address will be followed by a panel discussion with experts from the charity and grant-making sectors.


Andy Haldane, Chair (Bank of England, PBE co-founder)

Dawn Austwick (Big Lottery Fund)

Hugh Stickland (Citizens Advice)

Mike Ellicock (National Numeracy)

The lecture will bring together charity professionals and economists from both the public and private sector in an illuminating event on third sector impact.
