The regeneration of Hull will top the agenda at the IoD’s next Meet-Up Monday.
Mark Jones MBE, director of regeneration at Hull City Council, will be the guest speaker on 23 September at The Guildhall, Alfred Gelder Street, from 5.30pm to 7pm.
Entry is free for everyone, with the opportunity to connect and share ideas with fellow directors over drinks in a relaxed atmosphere.
Mark worked with the ports sector in Hull and the Humber for many years. He led the council’s partnership approach to Green Port alongside ABP, the University of Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire Council. He has also worked alongside ABP and Siemens to maximise the potential of the offshore renewables sector.
During the evening Mark will update guests on the city’s regeneration before hosting an open Q&A session.
Pat Coyle, IoD chair in East Yorkshire, said: “We’re looking forward to hearing the latest news from Mark about the continuing regeneration of the city.
“Meet-Up Monday is open to everyone, so please feel free to pop in for a drink. The aim is to raise the profile of the IoD East Yorkshire branch and give existing members a chance to meet potential new members and vice versa.”
