Pow­er­house pro­pos­als gain more sup­port

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS / NEWS -

LAW firm Squire Pat­ton Boggs and the Univer­sity of Leeds hosted key stake­hold­ers from across the North­ern Pow­er­house at a work­shop that fo­cused on in­dus­trial strat­egy.

The work­shop took place at the North­ern Pow­er­house Busi­ness Sum­mit, which was held as part of the Great Ex­hi­bi­tion of the North in New­cas­tle and Gateshead.

The work­shop sought to iden­tify op­por­tu­ni­ties to in­flu­ence pol­icy and in­vest­ment, drive eco­nomic growth across the North and leave a legacy for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.

John Alder­ton, the of­fice man­ag­ing part­ner of Squire Pat­ton Boggs, said: “We were de­lighted to have been given the op­por­tu­nity to pro­vide a work­shop at the in­au­gu­ral North­ern Pow­er­house Busi­ness Sum­mit.

“We found one con­sis­tent fac­tor – over­whelm­ing sup­port and en­gage­ment from stake­hold­ers across all of the North and wider afield. This demon­strates the com­mit­ment to the North­ern Pow­er­house.”
