In May, the CBI launched Seize the Moment: an economic strategy to transform the UK economy. We have identified six business-led opportunities – prizes – that the UK could capture by 2030, which if achieved are worth around £700bn to the economy.
Now we are looking to set out asks of business as well as the government and welcome your input into what actions and commitments should be made. Join us for five virtual consultations throughout October and feed in your view on the key challenges and blockers to progress.
By attending, you will:
- Workshop how the CBI can work on your behalf on in 2022; tell us about your business’ needs and how we can help you
- Highlight your own good practice as we look to profile examples of where business is leading the way
- Discuss the criteria for success and KPIs you think we should be setting, in order to benefit your business’ journey to transforming the UK economy
- Voice your priorities and feed into us what you expect from the government and any policy-specific questions that you have.

Tuesday 5 October: Skills & Inclusion
An inclusive economy is about developing an environment where all talent can thrive. This has big opportunities for business and society. In this session we will discuss the conditions needed to unlock these opportunities, influencing government policy, demonstrating to businesses the case for change, and helping you to make progress.
Wednesday 6 October: Decarbonisation
As the UK accelerates its transition to a net zero economy, opportunities are emerging. Businesses that act early and decisively can access fast-growing markets at home and abroad, attract the best talent and a lower cost of capital.
Join us to influence the CBI’s actions to business and government over the coming year, as we take a deep dive into business’ role in supporting net zero through the reduction of carbon footprints, as well as how the policy environment can evolve to encourage higher levels of business investment in the critical years ahead.
Tuesday 12 October: Innovation
From accelerating digital strategies to developing new products, services and business models, innovation has been critical for businesses throughout the pandemic.
