Inside the Minds of Business Leaders 2017

Inside the Minds of Business Leaders 2017

Our second series of Inside the Minds of Business Leaders events has completed for 2017.

During these events – attended by over 500 business people from across the region – we launched the 2017 findings of our tailored research conducted in partnership with Ipsos MORI, which uncovered the key challenges, opportunities and strategies faced by East Anglian business leaders in recent times.

Presented by Matt Painter of Ipsos MORI and chaired by Martin Clapson, Managing Director at Price Bailey, the findings provoked some very interesting discussions and gave our panel of experts a lot to talk about.
