Names Not Numbers - NNN - is a private ideas conference like a live version of the Financial Times, our Media Partner.

NNN offers the level of networking usually seen on the top of a swiss mountain, and the level of new ideas found in top universities: our academic partners include several Oxford Colleges.

Content and Connection. Between key thinkers, speakers, artists, politicians academics and scientists and senior managers, Future Leaders, and individual entrepreneurs. 

Simon Schama, Margaret Atwood, Professor Amartya Sen, Annie Lennox, Baroness Helena Kennedy QC, Astronomer Royal Lord Rees and Hannah Rothschild are amongst the speaker alumni.

As Matt Peacock, Group Director of Corporate Affairs, Vodafone, NNN's Lead Partner puts it:

“We would highly recommend Names Not Numbers to any serious organisation. Editorial Intelligence has built NNN into an absolute 'must-attend' date in the diary for a wide range of informed and influential people at global level. It's now become a kind of alternative 'Davos-next-to-the-Sea', only with even more diversity. We have found the NNN events to be invaluable. Over the last few years, we have built up some really strong and important relationships that would not have happened were it not for the eclectic, fascinating and friendly melting pot. If you and your colleagues could spare the time to join us, I'm pretty confident you would not regret it”
