Top financial expert shares experiences at latest Great Minds
Charlotte Hogg One of the UK’s top financial experts has shared details of her career and varied experiences in the latest instalment of the Great Minds guest lecture series at the University of Lincoln, UK.

Charlotte Hogg, who became the first Chief Operating Officer at the Bank of England in 2013, talked about the importance of managing your own career, developing a style of leadership early on and building a strong support group.

The guest lecture was entitled Serendipity or Design?, and took place on 6th March 2017 at the University’s main Brayford Pool campus. The talk was followed by a Q&A with  a panel of five talented students.

Ms Hogg started her career at the Bank of England, and held posts at Santander UK, McKinsey & Company, Morgan Stanley, Goldfish Bank, and Experian UK & Ireland before moving back to the Bank of England, the central bank of the UK.

“Lincoln is my home town and I care very much about our education here in the East Midlands and its contribution to growth and employment. The University of Lincoln has played a transformational role here, and it is a great pleasure to be part of the Great Minds lecture series,” said Ms Hogg, who has a BA in Economics and History from Oxford, and is one of 10 to 15 Kennedy Memorial Trust Scholars from Harvard University chosen each year from the UK.

Ms Hogg is a member of the Finance, Audit and Remuneration Committees of Oxford University Press and is a trustee and former chair of First Story Ltd. She was also a former Director of BBC Worldwide, and a former board member of Partnership with Children in New York, USA.
