TheBusinessDesk.com will host an event in November which will conclude a six-month project that has put the spotlight on the vital sectors of the North’s economy.
Three leading voices will outline the region’s prosperity, growth potential and success at TheBusinessDesk.com’s Building a Stronger North event, sponsored by Squire Patton Boggs and KPMG. It is the conclusion of the State of the Region series.
Delegates to this free-to-attend breakfast seminar will hear from Councillor Susan Hinchcliffe – the leader of Bradford Council and Chair of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority – and Ian Ball, the chief operating officer at listed property development firm Harworth.
The event takes place from 8am to 10am on Tuesday 5 November at Squire Patton Boggs, 6 Wellington Place, Leeds.
Delegates will also hear an overview of the North’s thriving sectors from Hannah Kendrick, partner and head of the corporate team in Leeds at Squire Patton Boggs.
Cllr Hinchcliffe will discuss the importance of business and government investment across the region to bolster the North’s economy. She will also touch upon how such partnerships are strengthening.
Ball, who has been with Harworth since 2014 and was promoted to his current role in May, will discuss the importance of the North to the UK’s economy.
He will highlight why and how Harworth is focusing on strengthening the north as a business investing heavily in huge industrial and residential schemes of national importance. Ball will be able to share how such focus will attract investors and create jobs.
The morning promises to be an interesting overview of the North’s position at a pivotal time in the economic landscape. Tickets can now be booked online.
