"The focus of the talk will be an overview of the Economics of SWO, The Talent Drain in London, and the Inability of traditional institutions to engage with the 20 to 44 year old demographic. London has been going through a shift in economics and demographics over the last 6 years. With the huge loss of employment in our city, the mass exodus of the 20 to 44 year old demographic, and the inability of traditional clubs and institutions to resonate with this group. there is a looming choice for London. Will we look continue to look to the past or create a modern future?"
