Description

Join the Solent LEP for its 2019 annual conference, hosted by the BBC business editor Simon Jack.

In the context of the political debates taking place over coming weeks, and the potential changes that might impact businesses and individuals in the UK, Solent LEP's conference is called ‘Countdown to Brexit’.
Our expert speakers and panel members will consider the technical and other business-based advancements happening across the Solent region, and how corporate resilience will be key in the future.

Our compere Simon Jack, the highly-respected BBC business editor will chair our live panel discussion, when delegates will be able to pose questions. Simon will also bring his unique insight on Brexit and the national business landscape in his closing keynote speech.
The conference will feature insightful talks from a variety of regional business leaders, as well as networking opportunities and an update from Solent LEP about our plans for the future.

Among those set to talk are:

  • Aart Hille Ris Lambers, UK Commercial Director at DP World, which runs Southampton’s container port
  • Neil Garwood, Managing Director at Southampton Airport
  • Hannah Clipson, Partner at law firm Irwin Mitchell
  • Leigh Atkinson, Local Director at Metro Bank

At 2.00pm, after the main event closes, we are offering delegates the opportunity to take part in one of three interactive seminars, where comments, suggestions and observations will form the basis of the Local Industrial Strategy.

The topics include:
1. Innovation, Big Data and AI
2. Skills
3. Coastal Renaissance
4. Supporting the region's businesses beyond BREXIT
