Finance Directors Network (EE/SW) on what the Chancellor’s Budget means for business investment

As businesses focus on building back better in 2021 and grapple with the uncertainties posed by the end of the transition period, join senior company finance executives from your area of the UK at these quarterly meetings to discuss the issues that matter most to you.  

As well as hearing from other finance executives, you’ll hear from expert speakers and exchange thoughts and ideas in a Chatham House setting chaired by Ben Rhodes, Deputy Director – South West, CBI.    

Join our next Finance Director Network call, where we'll be joined by Susannah Odell, Principal Policy Adviser, Tax and Fiscal Policy, CBI to discuss:  

  • The current government emergency COVID-19 support measures and what to expect in the next three to six months 
  • What the Budget means for your company and your long-term business investment opportunities.

We'll also be joined by one of our regional CBI member FDs to discuss their experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic and how they’re approaching the economic recovery. 

Some questions to consider:   

  • How is your company performing as we approach the year end? 
  • How is your company looking to finance future growth over the next five years? 
  • What areas are you looking to invest in? Have these changed since the pandemic? Do you feel like there is government support in place (e.g. through the Budget) to do this? 


  • Regional Chair – Ben Rhodes, Deputy Director – South West, CBI 
  • Susannah Odell, Principal Policy Adviser, Tax and Fiscal Policy, CBI
  • Member company case study

You will particularly benefit from this event if you are a:  

  • Finance Director 
  • Chief Financial Officer 
  • Senior leader working in the finance function 

We want to hear how your business has been affected, what you are doing differently, and what your business needs are to survive and thrive.    

Book your place today:   
This Webex meeting is for CBI members.   

Webex dial-in details will be sent in your confirmation email, and again, the day before the event. If you’re unable to attend, please do let us know.
