“We are the Makers, Inventors and Disrupters”

As part of the NWBLT events around the Conservative Party Conference, which was hosted in Manchester this year, we were pleased to co-host a reception at Addleshaw Goddard’s office alongside the Law Society around the Northern Powerhouse.


We were delighted to welcome Jack Berry MP, the Minister for the Northern Powerhouse, and Henri Murison, Director of the Northern Powerhouse Partnership; their contributions, alongside those of Emma Degg, created a unique event that gave insights into the Northern Powerhouse initiative from both the private and public sectors.

The NWBLT is delighted to see this commitment by Government and the general attendance and engagement with this event really emphasise the desire of business to collaborate with each other as well as with Government for the sake of the region’s development. One of the keys to the NWBLT’s success is its ability to create exceptional opportunities for dialogue between stakeholders who have a vested interest in the North West region, be they our members or our political representatives.
