It’s question time for businesses on the Humber

Humber Business Week event brings together some of region’s leading business figures

Regional law firm Andrew Jackson Solicitors LLP will host a ‘Question Time’ panel discussion next month, which will bring together a panel of the region’s leading business figures to discuss some of the big questions from the audience in an hour of discussion and debate.

Simon Green, chief executive of Humber Freeport; Jo Barnes, managing director of Sewell Group; Diana Taylor, managing director of Future Humber; and James Doyle, group managing director of J.R Rix, will share their expertise and valuable insight into the issues raised by attendees. Subjects will likely include inward investment and the Humber Freeport, recruitment and retention, social mobility and the potential impact of a general election.

The event, which takes place on 5 June during Humber Business Week, will be introduced by Mark Pearson-Kendall, managing partner of host firm Andrew Jackson Solicitors, and will be chaired by Dave Laister, newly appointed director at Fred Marketing. A familiar face to many, Dave previously served as a senior business journalist across the Humber for almost two decades.

Mark Pearson-Kendall said: – “We’re really looking forward to hosting what looks set to be a lively and insightful discussion around some of the key issues affecting the region’s businesses. I have no doubt that our panellists will provide plenty of food for thought.

“Humber Business Week is always a hugely successful week of opportunity for the region, and we are excited to be taking part again in this diverse programme of events.”
