CBI economist to speak at BMF Members Day

One of the CBI’s leading economists, Anna Leach, will be one of the keynote speakers at BMF Members Day in September. Anna will also lead a workshop on economic matters later in the day.

Anna is head of the economic analysis team, overseeing the CBI’s quarterly global macroeconomic forecast and the CBI’s highly regarded business surveys of economic conditions across the UK economy. She has been at the CBI since 2008, previously working in the CBI’s fiscal team on the UK’s fiscal strategy.

Before joining the CBI, Anna worked in macroeconomic analysis at the Treasury and as a labour market economist at DWP, as well as undertaking a secondment to the Treasury Select Committee.

John Newcomb, BMF MD, said: “I’m delighted that Anna has agreed to join our line up of speakers for Members Day and lead a workshop on economic matters.  The event is renowned for addressing business-critical issues and in a time of instability in global financial markets, and a year when ‘Brexit’ remains a very real possibility, everyone will want to know how the UK economy is likely to fare. The economist slot is always one of the most popular parts of Members Day and I know everyone will be keen to hear Anna give the CBI’s view on the Economy.”

Supported by headline sponsor, ACO, BMF Members’ Day takes place on 20th and 21st September 2016 at Jurys Inn Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire.  The two-day event encompasses an informative business conference with a range of thought-provoking guest speakers, a black-tie Awards Dinner, sponsored by Marsh Industries, and informal networking opportunities including the BMF’s popular Golf Tournament, sponsored by Monument Tools.  This will be held at the nearby Nuneaton Golf Club.

The BMF is offering Earlybird discounts on all Members’ Day tickets booked by merchants before 31st March 2016.  For more information, and to book your place, please contact june.upton@bmf.org.uk
