Business Lunch: Autumn Conference, Monday 16th September 2019
Our annual Business Lunch will take place at Autumn Conference in Bournemouth, and this year is kindly sponsored by BVCA (British Private Equity and Venture Capital Association). The lunch is a fantastic opportunity for senior businesspeople, entrepreneurs, representatives of the local business community and senior Liberal Democrats to come together to network, discuss the most pressing political issues facing business in 2019, and hear from guest speakers.
As an essential part of our policy-making process, Conference is an invaluable opportunity to add your voice to the debate.
We are witnessing an extraordinary period of volatility and uncertainty in British politics right now. Undoubtedly, the Brexit being negotiated by Theresa May and her Conservative Government is putting the bright future of UK businesses at risk.
The Liberal Democrats are the only major political party with a clear position on Brexit, who can develop radical solutions to the domestic crises that the Conservatives are not dealing with. This includes putting a penny in the pound on income tax to properly fund our NHS, and creating a new deal for a younger generation locked out of the housing market, which would enable local and national government to build houses using compulsory purchase powers and publicly owned land.
Join us to discuss these issues and the Liberal Democrats’ key role in the next stage of progressive politics. We hope you’ll be part of the conversation. You can purchase tickets at the bottom of this page.
Business Day: London, Thursday 12th September 2019
In the past, Business Day has been held during Autumn Conference. But this year, we’re holding Business Day in London the week before Conference, on Thursday 12th September 2019.
Holding Business Day in London ensures our events are as accessible as possible to businesses from across the country, not just to those in the South near Bournemouth. It means we can run a larger event, with more businesses, more councillors and more parliamentarians, giving you a better opportunity to network and get your business’s concerns and priorities in front of people who can effect change.
Although we won’t know about the future of the UK’s relationship with the European Union, we’re certain that business leaders deserve to be heard about the business policies which have been neglected by this Government, policies such as the rise in artificial intelligence, SMEs, and issues surrounding cyber-security.
