The Arrol Adam Lectures were launched this academic year comprising a series of six lectures on different aspects of “Risk”, organised by College President, Dr Michael Potter. The free lectures are aimed at a general audience and are open to the public as well as College members.

The sixth lecture will take place on Thursday 6th March at 6pm in the College auditorium and is entitled “The risk of terrorism”.

The speaker is Sir Richard Dearlove, former Head of the Secret Intelligence Service.

Sir Richard Dearlove served as Chief (known as ‘C’) of the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) from August 1999 until his retirement in July 2004. For the preceding five years he was Director of Operations and, from 1998, Assistant Chief. As Director of Finance, Administration and Personnel he also oversaw the move of SIS into its Headquarter Building at Vauxhall Cross in 1994. He is a career intelligence officer of thirty-eight years standing and has served in Nairobi, Prague, Paris, Geneva and Washington as well as in a number of key London-based posts.

Sir Richard took up the Mastership of Pembroke College Cambridge on 1 October 2004. He is also a trustee of Kent School, Connecticut, which he attended as an ESU exchange student in 1962/63, Honorary Fellow of Queens’ College Cambridge, a member of the International Advisory Board of AIG , senior Adviser to the Monitor Group and Chairman of Ascot Underwriting and Chairman of the Trustees of The Cambridge Union Society.

The management of risk has played an important part in Sir Richard’s professional life, both as an intelligence officer and more recently through his involvement in the business of insurance.
