Next Forum – Fri Oct 14th – ‘Suggestions for Plan C’

At long last, our politicians seem to be waking up to the fact that we are hurtling headlong into a potential decade of austerity with David Cameron finally urging the G20 into a recovery plan.  A great shame they didn’t attend our meetings or take note of our findings of the last two years though, as we have been warning that this could happen without strong leadership and vision.

But what might such a recovery plan look like?

Governments worldwide seem transfixed between two plans. Plan A appears to be cut spending with Plan B being to spend more irrespective of future liabilities.  Both have, and are being tried out with limited success everywhere. So is it time for an alternative – Plan C?

This then will be the theme for the next Partners in Management Forum event to be held at the Media Centre, Huddersfield at 9.15 on Friday the 14th October and due to finish around lunchtime. It will be interesting to see how different our suggestions will be to those we made back in Feb 2009 where for example, we floated the idea of commercial credit unions being necessary to support business lending and generating growth.

Given that the Forum has been incredibly accurate in its findings and anticipations to date, can its members be as equally forthcoming in suggesting how we might avoid entering the dreaded ‘zombie’ economy and reignite growth instead, particularly from a Yorkshire economic perspective?

Whilst there is a wide representation of sectors among the membership, there are still some places available and attendees from the legal, financial advice and accountancy professions would be more than welcome.
