Understanding devolved decision making workshops

What powers will elected mayors have in some of our key business locations? What decisions will LEPs be making for our local area?  How will my business benefit? If you’re asking any of these questions the CBI’s ‘Understanding devolved decision making’ workshops can help.

Investment decisions, day to day business plans and workforces are shaped by the communities in which you operate in and the local governance structures behind them. With the devolution agenda gathering momentum and pace, and a changing landscape of government intervention and support, the importance of local engagement is growing.

In February and March 2017 the CBI will be running full-day workshops or in-house sessions for business leaders looking to minimise the risk and maximise the opportunities that devolution can bring.

Building on the evidence in the CBI’s Unlocking regional growth report and our expertise in lobbying and government engagement, the workshops will help you make sense of the changes in the policy and political landscape and what these mean for your local operating environment.

We’ll be running sessions in:

  • Birmingham
  • Bristol
  • Leeds
  • London
  • Manchester
  • Newcastle

In-house sessions are also available on request for groups.
