Doncaster Business Conference

Friday 18 May 2018, 8.00 - 12.30pm, The Legacy Centre, Doncaster

The Doncaster Business Conference is back for its fourth year, bringing the private sector, politicians and other key stakeholders together to discuss the matters which are important to Doncaster businesses.

The event serves as a stocktake for Doncaster’s economy and allows the private sector to air its views on the challenges and opportunities facing them. The event helps to inform the Chamber’s policy priorities for the following twelve months and, importantly, allows for a high level discourse to take place between the borough’s businesses and local, regional and national stakeholders that have an influence on the Borough.

The event, facilitated by Greg Wright (Deputy Business Editor, Yorkshire Post), will focus on two panel discussions looking at:

  • Work Hard: Harnessing Doncaster’s talent
  • Play Hard: Creating a vibrant cultural place

The conference will also include keynote addresses from Robert Hough CBE (Chairman of Peel Airports Group) and Rosie Millard OBE (Chair of BBC Children in Need, Former Chair of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 / Journalist, Broadcaster, Cultural Commentator and Author), and an 'In Conversation With' segment with local MP's.

Panellists and speakers include:

Karen Finlayson (Partner, PWC),  Anne Tyrell (Chief Executive, DN College Group), Deborah Rees (Director and CEO, Cast),  Andy Price (Managing Director, &create), Leah McMullen (Design Manager, Queens Road Design Centre), Jo Miller (Chief Executive, Doncaster Council), Rt Hon Ed Miliband (MP for Doncaster North), Rt Hon Caroline Flint (MP for Don Valley), Rt Hon Dame Rosie Winterton (MP for Doncaster Central), Dan Fell (Chief Executive, Doncaster Chamber), Jill Wood (Vice President, Doncaster Chamber and Managing Director, Signum Facilities Management), Laura Bennett (Board member, Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership), Tim Banfield (Executive Director, Doncaster Racecourse), Mark Smith (Commercial Director, Wabtec Faiveley UK) and Alistair Maclean-Clark (CEO, 360 Degrees Media).
