Luncheon with guest speaker Dr Lorraine Morley

Dr Lorraine Morley is an academic and industry consultant. She began her career in IT in retail banking, in the early days of the digital revolution.

Leaving the banking industry in her mid-twenties, she set up her first restaurant with a business partner on a Dutch barge sailed over from the continent, before going on to open other restaurants and to buy the (then) micro-brewery Oakham Ales which has since won many major brewing awards and exports its products all over the world.

Exiting the business in the 90’s, Lorraine went on to do an MBA and then a PhD in Open Innovation and for many years ran the UK arm of the European AgeTech Accelerator programme. Lorraine now lives in Cambridge and works as a technology consultant advising startups, corporates and the government.

She also has a secret life as a novelist and playwright and her new play ‘Henrietta’s War’ is being performed at the Corpus Playrooms in Cambridge in July.
