The House of Lords dinner is one of a series of annual business-political events which we hold across the UK for our members. These dinners provide a platform from which we can raise and debate issues relating to sustainability with policymakers in an informal setting.
This year’s House of Lords dinner will be held on the evening of Monday 21st November 2016 at 1930h in the Atlee Suite.
Our key note speaker is Mark Farmer, author of the Government sponsored Farmer Review, and will be providing the inside track on the background to his industry-changing report, and explaining what he thinks needs to change and how this can be achieved.
The event is hosted by Baroness Christine Crawley who is one of Labour’s two Deputy Chief Whips in the House of Lords, a post she has held since the 2010 General Election.
The dinner is open for members to bring guests. In addition to the opportunity to debate with the Keynote Speaker and politicians, it is also a forum to meet fellow members and for potential members to find out more about UK BCSD.
The traditional format is for a formal but general discussion session after the Keynote speech, which provides the opportunity for everyone to take part and raise issues or ask questions. However the remainder of the evening is relatively informal and there is time for networking before, during and at the end of the event.
