Justin Urquhart Stewart Confirmed as Second Guest Speaker at HS2 Summit on Station Location
26th January 2016
Sheffield Chamber of Commerce is happy to announce that Justin Urquhart Stewart will be joining Henk Bouwman at next month's HS2 event taking place at the City Hall.
The conference aims to set out the case for a HS2 station in Sheffield City Centre and 'to lay out the facts as clearly as possible'. Justin is an enthusiast for greater financial education and the reform of investment structures for both investors and companies needing easier access for funding. As a result he has helped in the establishment of educational body Proshare, and also the development of the AIM market. Currently, he is keen on developing reforms for government privatisations as well as the development of regional investment structures for businesses of all sizes. He is a regular commentator and columnist on the media and is often called upon to demystify complicated financial jargon and stories. Richard Wright, Executive Director of the Sheffield Chamber, said "We are delighted Justin has agreed to come to Sheffield City Region and give an independent view of the economic and strategic issues around the station location. His economic credibility is unparalleled and I can think of nobody better to draw upon all the information we will hear and give us that impartial opinion that we all need." The event takes place on 18th February at Sheffield City Hall. Click here to book your place.
