The future of Sheffield

Like many UK cities, Sheffield is going through a period of major transformation, offering modern new office space, repurposed buildings and making headway on its net zero ambitions.

However, Sheffield is unique as the only city with a national park within its boundary – in fact, 61% of Sheffield’s entire area is green space. As a result, investors and occupiers are keen to hear more about the opportunities and value available in a place which has become known as “the outdoor city”.

In this film production with EG, Sheffield partners, Tom Hall and Kellie Hatton, join a roster of experts to discuss how the city is evolving, and other topics including:

  • How the Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park is reviving the city’s entrepreneurial spirit
  • How a focus on sport, health and wellbeing can help support its residents through the pandemic and beyond
  • The talent available in Sheffield and the incredible opportunities for start-up companies

Joining Tom and Kellie on the film were:

  • Kate Josephs, Chief Executive, Sheffield City Council
  • Mark Jackson, Development Director at Scarborough Group
  • Professor James Marshall, Chief Scientific Officer, Opteran Technologies
