Chambers Webinars - Good Growth for Cities

This webinar and discussion forum was held on Friday 31 March and was co-hosted by PwC and Norfolk Chambers of Commerce.

 We shall consider the local impact of both the pandemic and Brexit and, most importantly, highlight the strategic opportunities for the city to play a key role in the regional, national and international economies.

In this session PwC's market senior partner for Cambridge and the East, Simon de Young, and economist Paddy Schmidt will explore the findings of Demos-PwC’s latest Good Growth for Cities report. PwC Director, Lauren Dilrew will highlight what the implication for Norfolk is and what the region needs to consider as it builds its economic recovery in 2021.

This is PwC's ninth report measuring the performance of the UK largest cities and LEPs against the 10 indicators the public deem most important when it comes to 'good growth'.

This year’s report focuses on the economic impact of COVID-19 on places, with GVA projections for 2020 and 2021 based on a city’s sectoral make-up, claimant count, furlough, footfall and infection rates.

There will be the opportunity for you to ask your questions directly to the panel during the Q&A session, or if you have any questions prior to the session you can add them at registration.

 Chaired by Nova Fairbank, Chief Operating Office for Norfolk Chambers of Commerce, our speakers include:

  • Simon de Young PwC's market senior partner for Cambridge and the East
  • Paddy Schmidt PwC Economist 
  • Lauren Dilrew PwC Director
