Aston Business School Alumni Event


On Wednesday 22 October 2008, Aston Business School alumni gathered to hear Ian Pogson deliver a lecture at the Strand Palace Hotel in London. Ian Pogson, a Chartered Automotive Engineer, is Chief Engineer with Shanghai Automotive.

Ian delivered a lecture, Carry on Car-Making – Life in China after Longbridge. The lecture gave a personal overview of the final years of MG Rover followed by a fascinating and unusual account of life and work in China. This stimulated lively discussion, chaired by Professor Helen Higson, Head of Learning and Teaching at Aston Business School and Pro-Vice-Chancellor for International Relations.

Everyone had a great time at the event. One of the alumni guests commented: “I found the lecture very interesting and enjoyed meeting other Aston graduates.”
