The Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Economic Conference takes place on Friday, November 16 at the Ricoh Arena.
The Chamber’s message this year is “business is done better together” and each year the conference brings together a wealth of Chamber Members, civic and business leaders, Councillors and local MP’s, to consdier the issues that really matter to business.
This year’s conference will feature ‘An Interview With…’ session with Martin Reeves, chief executive of Coventry City Council, and Monica Fogarty, chief executive of Warwickshire County Council.
It’s part of the Chamber’s drive to ensure that the audience is kept up to speed with the latest developments in the region and hear from key figures.
The event, which is headline sponsored by WCG Apprenticeships, will also hear from broadcaster Jon Snow, entrepreneur Maggie Philbin and Jeremy Wright, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport.
The first of two panel sessions will focus on the local, national and global economy with Jonathan Browning, of the LEP; Dominic Bunning, of HSBC; Abhinay Muthoo, of the University of Warwick; and David Burton, of the Chamber’s Brexit Club.
A skills panel will feature Angela Joyce, of WCG Apprenticeships, as lead panellist and will also hear from Fleur Sexton DL, of PET-Xi Training; Dr Julie Nugent, of WMCA; Mark Bailie, of Finham Multi-Academy Trust; and Christian Warden, of the Manufacturing Technology Centre.
Chris Nagle, of the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, said: “We are looking forward to bringing the business community together for another packed annual conference and are already expecting well over 200 business people on the day.
“It’s a highlight event in the region’s business calendar as it is a chance to hear from key business figures, civic leaders and decision makers at a local, regional and national level.”
