Thursday 15 October 2020 – 8.30am to 9:30 am
Join us for the latest Cratus webinar where, joined by an esteemed panel representing some of the largest employers in the region, we will discuss the economy of the Southampton city-region, the various economic drivers and the challenges and opportunities for recovery.
We will explore themes including Brexit, attracting greater inward investment to the area, providing greater transport connectivity and the potential for a recovery grounded in clean and sustainable methods.
We are also very much looking forward to hearing about Southampton’s City of Culture bid.
Chaired by Marlies Koutstaal, Cratus Director for Southampton, our panel will include:
- Cllr Christopher Hammond, Leader of Southampton City Council
- Professor Mark Smith CBE, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Southampton
- Steve Szalay, Operations Director of Southampton Airport
This discussion will be of particular interest to individuals and organisations including:
Housebuilders, developers, entrepreneurs, investors, leisure and tourism operators, education providers, local politicians, planners, professional services, policy leaders and those working across the sustainability, maritime, aviation, logistics, technology and infrastructure sectors.
We will be taking live questions during the webinar or in advance via #AskCratus on Twitter. Please follow @CratusComm for updates.
