The Institute of Directors (IoD) January seminar, sponsored by Butterfield will discuss the economic challenges facing Guernsey over the next two political terms.
The breakfast will discuss why infrastructure will play a critical role in securing the Channel Island’s future through de-risking and delivering economic growth.
The event will hear from Martyn Dorey, who will discuss these themes and also share the economic and strategic argument behind a fixed link between the Channel Islands and what this would deliver.
Martyn will present the economic projections for the project in terms of predicted demand, affordability, return on investment and policy challenges.
Martyn is an investment actuary, and the founder of Dorey Financial Modelling and a former President of the Chamber of Commerce. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries and consults in a non-delegated function to several investment clients representing over £100bn of Assets Under Advice. Martyn also consults to the States of Guernsey on economic, fiscal and demographic matters.
Stephen Whitham, Head of Department Tunnels at Ramboll, a leading expert on major crossing, will present an engineer’s perspective on the project. Including the credibility of the link, the realism of costs and how Guernsey could practically turn vision into reality.
