Join the North’s political, business, community and academic leaders along with young people’s groups on Friday September 13, so that the North can fulfil its potentially transformational role in the future of the UK.

At this major event from the Convention of the North with the NP11 group of Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Chairs, event in Rotherham, with the support of Government, together we will make a powerful, unified case to the new Prime Minister and Government for tangible investment in the Northern Powerhouse.

Our keynote business speaker, Ruth Nic Aoidh, McLaren Automotive, joins a strong line-up from the North’s political, business, community and academic leaders, along with young people, hosted by broadcaster Steph McGovern.

Northern leaders speaking include Sheffield City Region Mayor Dan Jarvis, Chair of the NP11 and of the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership Roger Marsh OBE, Chair of Convention Cllr Nick Forbes, and Northern Powerhouse Minister, Rt Hon Jake Berry MP.

This nationally significant event will be a working convention to debate policy across key themes: skills and education, housing, transport, innovation, trade and investment, and clean growth.

The event brings together influential bodies such as the N8 research partnership, the People’s Powerhouse, Northern Power Women and leading think-tanks such as IPPR North and the Northern Powerhouse Partnership. Young people from across the North will set out their vision for the North’s future, and how current leaders need to work together to achieve it.
