Dinner and Quiz
11th October 2012
Professor Robert Winston will be the speaker at Glasgow Science Centre's second annual Question of Science dinner, and you are invited to secure a table at what promises to be one of the most fascinating evenings of the year.
A Special Opportunity
Lord Winston's career spans everything from superlative achievements in serious science, particularly in human biology and genetics, to equally impressive stints in the theatre, on TV, in the House of Lords as a Labour Whip and as Baron Winston of Hammersmith. He also holds passionate views on the role of science in society and education. Fittingly in this year of sport, he will be talking on the subject of genetics, what makes us what we are and how science goes some way to explaining differences between our physical capabilities and performance.
The evening will follow the very popular format of last year's successful evening with Professor Brian Cox, comprising a cocktail reception, Lord Winston's presentation and questions from the floor, and a superb dinner to accompany our "Question of Science" quiz.
We anticipate a wide range of business, scientific and academic organisations attending, and the quiz is a proven 'ice-breaker' generating discussion, friendly competition (and a noticeable amount of banter) as well as offering some spectacular demonstrations and intriguing puzzles.
The evening offers great networking opportunities for developing new partnerships, a unique way to thank your contacts and customers, and to reward colleagues and employees. Perhaps most of all, it is insightful and stimulating, as well as great fun, making it an occasion people will relish talking about.
The evening is on October 11th 2012 and tickets for tables of ten are on sale at £900 and include champagne reception, 3-course meal and entry into the quiz.
The evening will start with a champagne drinks reception at 6.30pm and concludes with carriages at 11.30pm. For more information or to book a table please call Kerry Bottomley on 0141 420 5005 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
