One of Lord Lawson's major interests has been the economics and politics of global warming, about which he has written a best-selling book, An Appeal to Reason: A Cool Look at Global Warming, which has now appeared in a number of foreign language editions.

Lord Lawson began his career as a financial journalist and progressed to the position of editor of The Spectator before becoming a Member of Parliament in 1974.

On the election of Margaret Thatcher's government, Lord Lawson was appointed to the position of Financial Secretary to the Treasury.

He went on to become Minister for Energy where he had responsibility for the privatisation of the energy sector before becoming  Chancellor of the Exchequer in succession to Geoffrey Howe in 1993 holding the post for the greater part of the Thatcher years.  He was a key figure alongside Margaret Thatcher in shaping Britain's fiscal and economic policies.

Lord Lawson's widely acclaimed book The View From No. 11 - Memoirs of a Tory Radical shares with the reader his political and economic views and also addresses the issues of the ERM, the single European currency, unemployment, Europe and the nature of modern democracy.

Lord Lawson's expertise on the European economic landscape is an invaluable asset for conferences and dinners.  He is an experienced keynote and after dinner speaker and his knowledge of the global economy and the current economic impact of climate change is of huge benefit for the corporate sector.
