IoD Senior Economist gives latest economic outlook at Regional Networking Lunch

04 Mar 2019
IoD East Midlands Regional Networking Lunch 2019 Tej Parikh and Rosie Smith


It is said that if you put two economists together in the same room, you’ll often end up with three opinions! 

On Thursday 28th February from 12.00pm-2.00pm directors from across the East Midlands came together at the perfect networking opportunity, the first Regional Networking Lunch of 2019. This was a very interesting and eye-opening event for all those attended. 

Tej Parikh from the IoD and Rosie Smith from the Bank of England East Midlands Agency were our knowledgeable and entertaining speakers, who were able to give attendees an up to the minute assessment of the rapidly changing economic environment.

There was plenty of opportunity for questions after the presentations, making it a fully interactive event for all. 

Photographer Peter Nutkins and IoD member, joined us to capture the event. 



Sponsored by Nottingham Business School, these events are spread across the year with different  speakers who cover a range of topics over a 2-course lunch. 

For our second regional networking lunch of the year on the 22nd May we are pleased to announce Fiona Thornewill MBE will be joining us for an inspiring and motivating afternoon. 

She is the first British woman to walk to  both the North and South Poles and broke the world record for being the fastest person to walk to the South Pole solo and unsupported. 

Fiona has been awarded numerous awards such as Pride of Britain in 2000, European Woman of the Year 2004 and in 2006 was awarded an MBE for services to Charity and Polar Exploration.
