Devolution for Yorkshire will come under the spotlight at a business leaders’ lunch this November.
Edwin Morgan, director of policy at the Institute of Directors (IoD), will offer a national perspective on what has become a hot topic for public and private sector leaders in Yorkshire and the Humber.
He will be among guests at The Mansion in Roundhay Park, Leeds, on 30 November.
Edwin leads a team of policy experts covering issues ranging from tax and regulation to trade and infrastructure, seeking to represent the interests of IoD members to the Government and to foster a climate favourable to entrepreneurial activity and wealth creation.
Following a two-course lunch, guests will take part in a round table discussion with Morgan and IoD regional chairman Jon Geldart.
The Mansion is the headquarters of award-winning catering and event management business Dine, whose founder Dan Gill will lead guests on a ‘Behind the Scenes’ tour of the Grade II-listed building.
Jon Geldart, chairman of the IoD in Yorkshire and the Humber, said: “As an organisation, we have committed our support to the One Yorkshire devolution proposal. It will be fascinating to get a national take on this politically-charged issue from Edwin.
“Everyone is welcome to join us for what promises to be an excellent event with high quality discussion, networking and outstanding food.”
The event starts at Noon. Tickets are £30 for members and £40 for non-members. Tables of 10 are £600 and £800 respectively. To book, email firstname.lastname@example.org
