The Annual Yorkshire Board Dinner

11 October 2013

An evening with Lord Heseltine...

Yesterday evening Odgers Berndtson and Berwick Partners hosted the Annual Yorkshire Board dinner, in conjunction with PwC. We were joined by over a hundred of the Yorkshire region’s leading figures from the Private and Public sectors, to hear Lord Heseltine speak about his recent report ‘No Stone Unturned’ – his economic plan for the UK. Within the impressive surroundings of Leeds Civic Hall, we were privileged to listen to his account of how successful partnerships between the public and private sectors, on a local scale, can create the opportunity for entrepreneurial activity to thrive in, subsequently generating real growth where it is needed most.

Listening to our joint hosts speakers from PwC, and our guests, it was difficult not to be swayed by the collective optimism on the economy for the Yorkshire region, and the UK as a whole. The evening ended with an insightful and enlightening Q&A session with Lord Heseltine, before the closing speech by our CEO, Kester Scrope.
