The IoD Guernsey January breakfast webinar, sponsored by Butterfield, will welcome IoD Chief Economist, Kitty Ussher, who will explore the latest UK economic outlook and what it means for cross-sector directors and their businesses.
Kitty is a former MP for Burnley and has served as Economic Secretary to the Treasury during the early phase of the 2008 financial crisis and later became Junior Minister at the Department for Work and Pensions. She is currently a UK macroeconomist (reviews overall economics or markets on a large scale) and public policy research professional.
After leaving politics in 2010, Kitty delivered public policy thought leadership projects for a number of large corporates and charities. She has served on the FCA consumer panel and in addition to her work at the IoD is also a NED for an asset manager and a fast-growing fintech.
Richard Hemans, Chair of the IoD Guernsey’s Economic subcommittee, will be joining Kitty and discussing how the latest UK economic outlook translates locally into trends for the Bailiwick’s economy. Richard is a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Director. Since 2013, he has been the Group Finance Director and Company Secretary of Blue Diamond, the UK’s second largest garden centre group.
The January breakfast event will take place virtually at 08:30-09:30 on Friday 28 January.
