Unlocking the lockdown

The country is entering a new stage of its battle with Covid-19. The Prime Minister has laid out the Government’s plans for unlocking lockdown, but what does the future hold for the Northern Powerhouse?

Pre-pandemic the economies of the North were enjoying renewed momentum and focus. However, the impact of coronavirus has been unprecedented nationally and internationally.

In the latest webinar by TheBusinessDesk.com in partnership with Squire Patton Boggs, a panel of experts will consider whether out of disruption opportunities could arise to think the previously unthinkable and do the previously undoable.

The session will include the latest view from Westminster, and discuss the impact of the pandemic and how cities and economies can rebuild for the future.

The panel includes, former Northern Powerhouse minister James Wharton, Eve Roodhouse chief officer of economic development at Leeds City Council, Tom Bridges, director of cities advisory at Arup and John Alderton, Leeds office managing partner at Squire Patton Boggs.

The virtual seminar will take place live on Zoom from 09.30 to 10.30 on Wednesday 13 May, and is free to attend. Simply click here to register.
