On Monday 23rd November 2020, WA Communications Director, Naomi Harris, hosted an expert panel to explore whether the Covid-19 pandemic has caused political power to shift permanently from national to regional and local government.
Watch the discussion to explore:
- The rise of the local leader: who are they and what do they care about?
- The competing demands on budgets: how are they decided and where are the pressure points?
- The delivery of the levelling up agenda: what does it really mean and why does it matter to ministers?
- The re-emergence of regional media: how will this impact how politicians and businesses communicate?
- The role of business and FDI: what is expected of business and how can you build your reputation with regional stakeholders?
The panel was comprised of:
- Joe Anderson, Liverpool Mayor
