CBI Business Dinner Norwich

Join the CBI in welcoming CBI Vice President, Lord Karan Bilimoria CBE DL to the region at this prestigious dinner, which will bring together senior business leaders from the East of England at Norwich Research Park's Centrum.

Lord Bilimoria is the founder of Cobra Beer, Chairman of the Cobra Beer Partnership Limited, a Joint Venture with Molson Coors, and Chairman of Molson Coors Cobra India. Lord Bilimoria is the Founding Chairman of the UK India Business Council, a Deputy Lieutenant of Greater London, and a former Chancellor of Thames Valley University (now the University of West London) - the youngest University Chancellor in the UK when appointed.

Karan was a former Senior Non-Executive Director of the Booker Group now TESCO PLC (2007-2016); he is one of the first two visiting entrepreneurs at the University of Cambridge; and a founding member of the Prime Minister of India’s Global Advisory Council. In 2006, Karan was appointed the Lord Bilimoria of Chelsea, making him the first ever Zoroastrian Parsi to sit in the House of Lords. In 2008 he was awarded the Pravasi Bharti Samman by the President of India.

This is a great opportunity for you to continue to share your experiences and challenges so the CBI can use this feedback to inform our conversations with government and ensure the voice of business is heard.
