Neale Jehan, Managing Partner, KPMG in the Channel Islands, said:
"It’s a great privilege to be hosting Lord Michael Hastings CBE in Guernsey. 2018 will no doubt be another year of significant and unpredictable change and against that backdrop, it’s never been more important for Guernsey to participate in the debate on sustainability and resilience in relation to business and the global economy.
"I know he is also particularly looking forward to participating in Amherst Primary School’s numeracy workshops. Instilling a thirst for learning and passing knowledge from one generation to the next is something that both Lord Hastings and KPMG are extremely passionate about."
