ďIt was a great opportunity to hear Danís thoughts and also for senior directors and managers to meet up in a more informal setting.
ďPontiís was the perfect venue for the event and itís certainly something weíll look to organise again in the future with other key stakeholders.Ē
Dan Jarvis, mayor of the Sheffield City Region, said: ďIt was very useful to meet people from so many South Yorkshire businesses and listen to their views on a wide range of issues.
ďThere are a number of challenges facing businesses in our region, but also a great number of opportunities. It was great to see the level of enthusiasm and innovative thinking among our business community, and I know that together we can build a stronger, more inclusive and more resilient economy.Ē
