Downtown in Business will be hosting an exclusive Leaders Lunch with Andy Street, the Mayor of the West Midlands. For almost a decade he led retail giant John Lewis before giving up the role to challenge for one of the most intriguing jobs in regional politics as the West Midlands region pushes for further devolution from Whitehall and the powers of the new Mayor become clearer.
In addition, Mr Street has chaired the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership, which brings together business and political leaders to channel Government investment in business, infrastructure and transport projects in the region.
Focusing on the opportunities and challenges that devolution and a regional mayor will bring, this exclusive lunch will offer a roundtable discussion to debate the big issues facing Greater Birmingham with leading decision makers and business leaders.
Mr Street will also discuss after his rigorous campaigning, the fantastic news that Birmingham are hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games and how this will have an excellent impact on the region’s regeneration plans and contribution to the economic growth of Birmingham.
