Attendees will hear from the writer, broadcaster and film-maker on Tuesday, January 22 during the conference, which will take place at Luton Hoo Hotel, Luton.
Paul is a writer, broadcaster and film-maker covering areas of economics, globalisation and the future of capitalism. His speech, entitled ‘profit, people & planet’ analyses economic trends and political developments, without ‘dumbing down’ or patronising the audience. We think it will be a great fit for the attendees to the conference and hope they can take lots away from Paul’s speech and instil what they learn into the running of their garden centres.
Formerly working as Channel 4 News’ Economics Editor, Paul covered all aspects of the UK and global economy, markets, labour and commerce and previously served in the sale role for BBC2’s Newsnight.
Paul was also Channel 4’s Culture and Digital Editor, examining the social, cultural and business impact of the new age of digital and online. Prior to joining the commercial broadcaster, he took over from Stephanie Flanders as Newsnight’s Economics Editor after several years as Business and Industry Correspondent.
Now free of the constraints of broadcast journalism, Paul takes a critical look at business and capitalism. He considers the impact and democratising power of technology and how this could affect the existing political and commercial elites.
Paul was also previously Deputy Editor of Computer Weekly. He has won the Workworld Business Journalist and Wincott awards for his China reports, and the Diageo African Business Reporting Award for his acclaimed film on how mobile phones are changing the continent.
He makes a wonderful addition to our line-up of speakers for our 2019 conference and we’re very much looking forward to hearing all he has to say.
