Beyond 2020: Business Priorities for the Next Decade


The 2020 British Chambers of Commerce Annual Conference, held on March 5, was an industry-leading affair, attended by high profile politicians, business leaders and the wider Chamber Network, including international representation from the Global Business Network.

This year’s event had the overall focus of: ‘2020 and Beyond, Business Priorities for the Next Decade’, with three key themes of people, trade and infrastructure. This set the scene for a range of insightful conversations, including panel discussions on the future of the modern workplace, opportunities and challenges.

Keynote speakers for the day included Baroness Ruby McGregor-Smith CBE, senior business leader and the incoming President of the British Chambers of Commerce, the Rt Hon Matt Hancock MP, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, the Rt Hon Greg Hands MP, Minister of State in the Department for International Trade, and Peter Flavel, CEO, Private Banking, Coutts & Executive Sponsor of Enterprise.

Attended by hundreds of delegates from a vast range of different sectors, the British Chambers of Commerce Annual Conference continues to be a flagship event on the business events calendar - a must-attend event for business leaders, corporate affairs and public policy professionals.
