We invite you to book for an exclusive business lunch with the CBI President, John Allan.

John was appointed the 27th CBI President by members at our recent AGM on 19 June 2018 and this will be his first visit to the East Midlands in the role. He will provide the latest insight and analysis of the political and economic landscape, drawing on recent meetings with Ministers and senior political representatives in Brussels and Westminster as well as share the latest CBI priorities for the year ahead.

The lunch will provide members plenty of opportunity to influence and shape CBI policy through an exclusive Q&A session as John keen to learn more about the challenges and opportunities businesses in the East Midlands see developing over the next 24 months.

John has been Chairman of Tesco since 2015, the largest private sector employer in the UK, and has also been Chairman of Barratt Developments since 2014.

The lunch will be attended by approximately 60 senior business leaders and offers you a fantastic opportunity for high-level networking with the best of business. 

In memory of former CBI Regional Director David Shutts the lunch will support the charity he created ASTRiiD which helps people with long term chronic illness find meaningful work.
