CBI pres­i­dent visit

Loughborough Echo - - LETTERS -

LOUGH­BOR­OUGH Col­lege CEO John Doherty wel­comed CBI Pres­i­dent Paul Drech­sler to an event cel­e­brat­ing the re­gion and call­ing for ac­tion to help boost its suc­cess.

At the col­lege-hosted au­di­ence with re­gional busi­ness lead­ers, stu­dents also had the op­por­tu­nity to cook and serve the evening meal and to host their own art ex­hi­bi­tion.

In his fi­nal ad­dress in the re­gion as CBI Pres­i­dent, Paul Drech­sler high­lighted the suc­cess of com­pa­nies in the East Mid­lands while call­ing on busi­ness, gov­ern­ment and lo­cal au­thor­i­ties to work bet­ter in part­ner­ship to bring the Mid­lands to­gether and tur­bocharge eco­nomic suc­cess. If we use the know-how of lo­cal peo­ple, the drive of busi­ness and the en­ergy of our po­lit­i­cal lead­er­ship, imag­ine what this would do to our pro­duc­tiv­ity and to re­gional in­equal­ity.”

Lough­bor­ough Col­lege CEO John Doherty said: “At Lough­bor­ough Col­lege we be­lieve we have a re­spon­si­bil­ity to im­pact pos­i­tively on the lives of our learners. Part of that is of­fer­ing those learners the best pos­si­ble op­por­tu­ni­ties.”
