Birmingham: The Challenge
On 11th June, Cratus was joined by a panel of industry experts to discuss all things Birmingham. Sean Anstee, Cratus Executive Director for Public Affairs, PR and Advisory, was joined by:
- Interim Chief Executive of Birmingham City Council – Chris Naylor
- Director for Inclusion Growth at Birmingham City Council – Ian MacLeod
- Director at Urban Splash – Nathan Cornish
- Managing Director of CarneySweeney – Gerald Sweeney
Chris kicked off the discussion by focusing on the up and coming opportunities in Birmingham, including HS2 and the Commonwealth Games. The panel then went on to share their views on key issues such as modern methods of construction (MMC), the West Midlands Combined Authority, and arts and culture in the city.
As expected in the current climate, the panel also covered the impact that Covid-19 was having on Birmingham, as well as identifying the key opportunities for regeneration across the city.
