September Overview – Andrew Carpenter
I hope and trust you had a pleasant summer and were able to enjoy a few weeks of annual leave. Like the rest of the industry, we kick back into action this week and have a busy autumn programme ahead of us. Our inaugural Golf Day next week is full and we launch our 2024 Awards in Birmingham on 26th September 2023. If you are interested in attending this networking launch event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The major event of the autumn programme is of course our construction summit. We have a stella line-up of speakers including the construction minister and Dame Judith Hackitt, so we are expecting an audience of 150+. We have a limit of 200 so if you wish to attend and don’t want to be disappointed please book your place now by visiting https://www.cemidlands.org/event/ce-midlands-construction-summit-2023/. You may wish to consider exhibiting at the summit and details of how you may do this are also featured in the link.
In July the board had an Away Day to plan our strategy for the coming eighteen months and I’m delighted to say that one possible new venture is the adoption of an Adopt a School campaign similar to that carried out by CESW five years ago. The idea will be to promote construction as a first-class career choice and improve our image at the same time. We are currently seeking sponsors to get this off the ground so if you or your company has a strong ESG policy and you’d like to be part of it please contact me at Andrew.email@example.com and I can offer more detailed information.
For now I wish you well, thank you for your continued support of CE Midlands and hope to see you on 18th October at our construction summit which will be the undoubted biggest event of the 2023 construction calendar.
