Perspectives - Andy Street

  • KPMG 1 Snow Hill Birmingham, England, B4 6GH United Kingdom (map)

OpenLand are delighted to confirm that our next speaker is Andy Street, ex CEO of John Lewis and Mayor of the West Midlands Combined Authority.

The event will provide an opportunity for those who identify as LGBT and allies together to provide peer support, share perspectives and explore business opportunities.

Andy Street will be discussing the real estate and construction opportunities over the next few years with the massive opportunities coming in devolution packages, Commonwealth games and delivering for our sector across the region.

Andy said: “I am delighted again to lend my support to organisations like OpenLand- the Midlands works best when we pull together and unite and OpenLand is bringing together a range of broad talent and helping shape the real estate and construction sector in our region fit for the 21 st Century. I am excited about our prospects ahead for this sector and the talent that exists across our region to push ahead”.
