On Tuesday evening, we were very lucky to receive Professor Will Harvey as the first of this academic year’s Haileybury Lecture speakers.
Professor Harvey has strong ties to the school, having been Head of School in 1999/2000 and a former governor. Professor Harvey, currently transitioning to Professor and Director of the new Social Purpose Centre at Melbourne Business School at the University of Melbourne, spoke on the topic of Reputation, which is the subject of his new book ‘Reputations at Stake’. It was also fascinating to learn of his work as the Chair of the Board of Libraries Unlimited, a charity championing the accessibility of library facilities for all.
The talk inspired many pertinent questions from the pupils in attendance, and Professor Harvey remarked that he found their subject matter very impressive. We want to thank Professor Harvey for taking the time to come and speak with the Haileybury Community, especially at such a busy time for him, and we wish him all the best in his upcoming move to Melbourne.
