A better future – What next for the Thames Valley?

As part of our ‘Future Cities’ campaign, Shoosmiths is holding a series of virtual ‘think tank’ discussions with prominent local stakeholders in different locations across the UK to share insights and ideas around what the future holds for these locations.

Here we discuss the Thames Valley which, from the views expressed by those on our panel, should embrace the entrepreneurial spirit which runs through the region and have confidence in its strengths as we move into a post-Covid period.

Our panel:

  • Kate Beauchamp – Acting CEO, Mabey Holdings
  • Tim Burden – Director, Turley
  • Richard Colclough – Relationship Director, HSBC
  • Henry Harrison – Partner, Cushman & Wakefield
  • Nigel Horton Baker – Executive Director, Reading UK
