We’re back – Friday April 4th

Our first proper event for a couple of years!

  • So what will the post-depression economic world look like here in Yorkshire?
  • What will help re-generate our economy and society and what is going to hold us back?
  • What will be the key election issues as we begin the countdown to the next general election?

These are just some of the topics we’ll be discussing here at the Media Centre in Huddersfield between 9.15 am and 1.15 pm.

In the past this group has been incredibly accurate in its anticipations of where the economy and society were heading. If in doubt just check out this summary of our findings prior to the 2010 general election and consider how many of then have come to fruition!

A free event but please book here on Eventbrite as places are limited.

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

September 23, 2011 2 comments

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.

Please contact for more information.
