Cambridge Growth Summit

Thursday 28th November, 8.30am-12pm followed by lunch

Granta Centre, Granta Park, Great Abington, Cambridge, CB21 6GP

The Times, The Sunday Times and KPMG invite you to join us for our Growth Summit in Cambridge. This invitation-only event is a key part of the nationwide CEO network that we are building as an extension of The Times CEO Summit in June.

We’ll be convening FTSE CEOs with high growth entrepreneurs, policy makers and Times journalists to discuss how different industries and sectors can prosper during this pivotal period of both uncertainty and opportunity.

Our audience will comprise business leaders, influencers, innovators and policy makers - inspirational and connected men and women who are focused on shaping the future of Britain's economy. Join this exclusive group to spend a morning sharing insights and experiences around embracing disruption, driving innovation and debating new strategies for growth post-Brexit.

We hope you can join us.
