Strategic partner

We are delighted to welcome CBI Deputy Director-general Josh Hardie to the region and to join us for a private dinner.

Josh is responsible for leading on CBI policy and campaign development and the communication of high-impact messages to ministers, officials and other decision makers in the UK and Europe in order to help build prosperity across the UK. Given recent progression with No 10, Josh will be keen to discuss business priorities for the new Government and provide insights into recent discussions with No 10, other political parties and European Ministers.

He will also discuss key issues and plans around industrial strategy and regional growth.
