Over 300 public and private sector business leaders expected to attend annual flagship event.
Public and private sector business leaders will attend the Doncaster Business Conference 2019 on Thursday 16 May to discuss what the future holds for Doncaster and its impact on the local and global economy.
The Conference facilitator, Hannah Essex, from the British Chambers of Commerce, will question the high profile keynote speakers and panellists on their opinions about doing business in Doncaster and beyond; including the challenges and opportunities it brings, particularly during the current economic climate.
This year’s two key themes are: ‘Act Local – Embracing Doncaster’s business assets’ and ‘Think Global – Making Doncaster an international business name.’
Panellists already confirmed include Jo Miller (Doncaster Council), Suzy Brain England OBE (NHS), Rea Smith (Eaton), Karen Beardsley (Unipart Rail), Sam W Martin (entrepreneur) and Rachel Whittaker (Jam Horse).
“The conference will drive conversations between the public and private sectors about some of the key issues that matter most to Doncaster businesses – namely the opportunity to keep improving and growing.
“Our high profile guests will share their own business experiences and best practices and delegates will have the opportunity to ask questions about the issues that matter most to them such as business support, town centre development, supply chain, devolution, education and international trade,” says Dan Fell, CEO of Doncaster Chamber.
“Doncaster Chamber is an organisation that is strongly committed to supporting business and growing the local economy and this annual event has become the opportunity for business leaders to meet, network and hear and challenge the latest thinking for Doncaster.”
Headline sponsorship and advertising opportunities are still available for businesses to gain high profile marketing and promotion opportunities within the region’s business community.
