Sorry, the date for this event has passed.

The Doncaster Business Conference is back for its fourth year, bringing the private sector, politicians and other key stakeholders together to discuss the matters which are important to Doncaster businesses.

The event serves as a stocktake for Doncaster’s economy and allows the private sector to air its views on the challenges and opportunities facing them. The event helps to inform the Chamber’s policy priorities for the following twelve months and, importantly, allows for a high level discourse to take place between the borough’s businesses and local, regional and national stakeholders that have an influence on the Borough.

The event, facilitated by Greg Wright (Deputy Business Editor, Yorkshire Post), will focus on two panel discussions looking at:

  • Work Hard: Harnessing Doncaster’s talent
  • Play Hard: Creating a vibrant cultural place

The conference will also include keynote addresses from Robert Hough CBE (Chairman of Peel Airports Group) and Rosie Millard OBE (Chair of BBC Children in Need, Former Chair of Hull UK City of Culture 2017), and an 'In Conversation With' segment with local MP's.

Speakers and panellists include:

Rosie Millard OBE (Chair of BBC Children in Need, Former Chair of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 / Journalist, Broadcaster, Cultural Commentator and Author) Robert Hough CBE (Chairman of Peel Airports Group), Karen Finlayson (Partner, PWC), Anne Tyrell (Chief Executive, DN College Group), Jo Miller (Chief Executive, Doncaster Council), Laura Bennett (SCR LEP Board), Mark Smith (Commercial Director, Wabtec Faiveley UK), Rt Hon Ed Miliband MP, Rt Hon Caroline Flint MP and Rt Hon Dame Rosie Winterton MP, Deborah Rees (Director and CEO, Cast), Andy Price (Managing Director, &Create), Rachel Horne (Co-editor, Doncopolitan Magazine and Co-founder, Horne and Draper), Tim Banfield (Executive Director, Doncaster Racecourse) and Alistair Maclean-Clark (Managing Director, 360 Degrees Media)
