Lord Jim O’Neil to deliver keynote address at IED Annual Conference


We are delighted to announced that Lord Jim O'Neil will be delivering a keynote address at our annual conference this year, which will take place at the ILEC Centre in London on 23rd November.

Lord O'Neil was until recently the Commercial Secretary to the Treasury, where he was heavily involved in driving forward the Northern Powerhouse initiative and regional financial devolution.

Previously he served as the acclaimed chairman of Goldman Sachs Asset Management, and as their Chief Economist. In 2001 he predicted that the then G7 countries would no longer be the drivers of the world economy; coining the ‘BRICs’ acronym, he argued that globalisation would bring a new era. He considers what makes an economy thrive, whether at home or on a global scale, and the outlook for the future of business.

To hear Lord O'Neil as well as our other key note speaker, Matthew Parris of the Times, the Spectator and Radio 4, as well as many other experts in their fields, please register your place soon whilst spaces remain.

Conference will be even more practical this year and will include more detailed ‘How to sessions’ – how to undertake different types of projects as well as an opportunity to ‘workshop’ difficult issues affecting members.
