City Conversations is our flagship event, attracting high-calibre speakers and regional leaders who give you an exclusive insight to the areas most pressing issues and developments. These events are aimed at business owners and senior management.
Our next City Conversations (normally invitation-only event), will be open for ALL members to attend on Thursday 14th July 2022 as we will also be holding our Annual General Meeting (AGM). As so many of you have had your say in who will be elected onto the board this year, we would love to extend an invitation to all our membership where we will announce our new board members.
This event will be hybrid and a link will be sent nearer the time to those who have selected to join online. Please indicate on booking should you wish to attend using this method.
