These lunches are sponsored by the Nottingham Business School and the IoD is committed to working with education and helping to develop the Directors of the future. Melanie Currie, Deputy Dean of the Business School will highlight the benefits of the links between education and business.

Our IoD Chief Economist, Tej Parikh will talk about how the IoD represents your views as members direct to Government. This has been particularly crucial during the Covid Crisis where member feedback has been able to reach the ears of Ministers. Tej will give examples of where you as members can help influence policy.

Our Regional Networking Lunches are a great place to meet with fellow directors and decision makers while discussing topics and policies that have a real effect on your business.
