Who do you want to see?
The ONE HULL Business Forum is looking for your ideas and comments as it develops its programme of events for 2012.
The Forum holds 4 Quarterly Forums a year which are oppourtunities for Members to hear from leading local and regional figures in Hull's regeneration. Since the Forum began we have heard from a variety of people on a wide range of issues which are summarised below.
What are the key issues facing your business at the moment? How can Hull create more businesses, get more people into work and reduce long term unemployment? How can Hull's leaders make the city a better place to live, work and visit?
Let us know who you would like to hear from and what issues you want discussed. Contact Hannah Crookes on 01482 324976, email or via the contact form below.
