Northern Powerhouse Conference 2015

December 1, 2015 @ 8:00 AM - 11:00 PM

The concept of the Northern Powerhouse has been widely supported but questions remain about how it will be funded and how Chancellor George Osborne will speed up the planning and delivery process for major projects.

In the most far-reaching consultation ever carried out, Insider has been engaging with businesses across the north to find out what they want from the Northern Powerhouse in terms of transport infrastructure; science and innovation, inward investment and housing.

Insider’s Northern Powerhouse conference will hear from the people who matter and will be attended by some of the most influential names from the public and private sector across the north. This will be the opportunity for business to have its say on the Northern Powerhouse.

Key Speakers:

Sir Howard Bernstein, chief executive, Manchester City Council

The most powerful man in the North West, according to Insider’s 2015 Power 100; he has the ear of Chancellor George Osborne and has been pivotal to the devolution agreement.

Professor Jean-Noel Ezingeard, deputy vice-chancellor, MMU

He’s tuned right in to the university’s response to the Northern Powerhouse and how institutions right across the north should be working together.
