WATCH OUR WEBINAR EVENT: A NORTHERN APPROACH – Wednesday 5 August. 11am
AS THE SHEER SCALE AND SCOPE OF THE IMPACT OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC ON BUSINESS BEGINS TO EMERGE, OUR NATION IS STARTING TO PLAN AHEAD AND PREPARE TO MITIGATE THE PREDICTED, HUGELY SIGNIFICANT CONSEQUENCES ON OUR NATIONAL ECONOMY.
In light of this, the Liverpool MIPIM Partnership webinar: ‘A Northern Approach’ illuminated how the UK’s North has made it a priority to work together, as a collective, to influence government and balance out the support it gives.
Tony Reeves, Chief Executive of Liverpool City Council and Joanne Roney, Chief Executive of Manchester City Council talked about what makes joint working the right approach in this arena. Martin Farrington, Director of Development for Leeds City Council, articulated how this kind of cohesive, collective working, across city boundaries can powerfully persuade government and reprioritise the national agenda.
Nicola Rigby, Principal, Avison Young and Jane Healey Brown, Director of Planning, Arup joined the conversation, expanding and supplementing the narrative by offering a unique on the ground perspective around planning and delivery across all these critical issues.
Frank McKenna, Founder and CEO of Downtown in Business – the fastest growing business organisation in the north – moderated the discussion, investigating how the three northern local authorities approached the forthcoming challenges, examining their priorities.
