Leading British financier Simon Walker is the latest professional to join the speaker panel at the UK’s first Business and Professional Services Conference.
Simon Walker is the chief executive of the British Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (BVCA) which represents British private equity and venture capital.
The BPS Conference, organised by pro.manchester, will offer delegates the chance to hear from influential players through keynote speeches, panel debates and interactive forums.
Simon will be sharing insight with conference attendees on the many challenges facing both private equity firms and BVCA.
He will be joining an influential panel of speakers including Andrew Bailey, executive director of banking and chief cashier of Bank of England, Angela Knight, chief executive of British Bankers Association, and Mark Prisk MP, minister for Business and Enterprise.
Presenters Kirsty Wark and Gavin Esler will be anchoring the conference and hosting sessions throughout the day in what is set to be a truly interactive experience for delegates.
pro.manchester CEO John Ashcroft said: “The BPS Conference is set to be the highlight of the business and professional services industry’s calendar this year. There is already high demand for places from across the UK and more speakers and topics are yet to be revealed. If you didn’t get to Davos, make sure you get to the point on the 17th March.”
The Conference has been organised in conjunction with MIDAS, Marketing Manchester, the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, RMS and the Commission for the New Economy.
It will be held at The Point conference centre at Lancashire County Cricket Club, Manchester on 17 March.
