Summer Reception

Just past the recent mayoral elections and held during London Climate Action Week, the Summer Reception will welcome Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, and Tony Danker, Director-General, CBI for a discussion on how, in partnership with business, the London government can tackle the capital's need to level-up within itself and help achieve this across the UK.

They will be joined by speakers from our Strategic Partner Cadent including Ranjit Blythe (Chief of Staff), James Harrison (Director of North London Network), and Alice Offley (External Affairs Manager, North London Network) who will explore how to enhance the capital’s international competitiveness and global presence, and outline the opportunities for London to become a world-leader in sustainability and in the race to net-zero during the year of COP26.

This is your opportunity to hear first hand from the Mayor on how we can seize opportunities for the growth, promotion, revival and protection of the UK’s capital city.

Why attend the Summer Reception?

Taking place at this pivotal moment, the Summer Reception will be one of the first opportunities for business leaders to:

  • Hear first-hand from the Mayor his goals and plans for this three-year term
