Chairman of the Midlands Engine and the Lord Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire, Sir John Peace – guest speaker at Nottingham City Business Club November event
Sir John will be speaking about what the Nottinghamshire Lieutenancy is about, what it is aiming to achieve and the potential for the business community to be involved through initiatives like the Queens Awards.
As chairman of the Midlands Engine, Sir John will outline how the Midlands Engine is responding to the Government’s Strategy for Growth, the Engine’s five priorities for investment that will enable the East Midlands to contribute to the UK’s Industrial Strategy and drive Britain’s post-Brexit growth.
Sir John Peace said “The Midlands Engine is one of the most important opportunities to attract diverse economic growth and investment in our region, and will enable the Midlands to compete on the world stage. Our strategic location, strong sense of identity and reputation builds on the partnership we have established. I am optimistic that by working together we can invigorate the £207 billion Midlands economy. I look forward to sharing more with you when we meet”’
