Strategic partner

A strategic-based forum for those with a significant FD function in their job role. An opportunity to hear first-hand, political and economic analysis and expert-led discussion on topics found on the Board agenda.


In an important year for the public finances, with the Comprehensive Spending Review due later in the year, Ben Jones, Principal Economist will look at the wider public finances which, with the recent reclassification of student loans, are not looking as good as previously thought.

Through industry peer-to-peer sharing and learning, you will also have the opportunity to address the key challenges affecting your industry.

Why attend?

  • As CBI policy teams think about their plans, we want to hear members’ thoughts on which spending commitments should be prioritised.
  • Ben will also give an economic update – after a better-than-expected performance in Q3 last year, how did the economy perform in the final quarter?
  • Learn more about the early indications for 2019 and what can we expect for the year ahead?

Who should attend?

The Network is designed for those with a significant finance / commercial function in their job role.
