Vanguard - The Legacy Phase
Delivering a renaissance region
The Chamber is committed to working with partners to create a buoyant and diversified economy for North-east Scotland and our Vanguard initiative with Shell UK aims to make good things happen in the region that otherwise, would not.
These are critical moments for our area. There are some emerging signs of an economic upturn but the momentum we have created must be continued. If we are to deliver the legacy we want for future generations, there can be no slipping back into our old ways.
Other areas in the UK have done this; re-inventing themselves; replacing old industry sectors; embracing culture; building stuff; creating exciting modern city centres where people wanted to be. Talking themselves up. And nowhere has done so more successfully than Manchester.
Join us for a fascinating evening presentation by Sir Howard Bernstein, Manchester City Council’s former chief executive and power broker whose rise from junior clerk to town hall boss has become legendary. He is credited with the area’s rebirth following the 1996 IRA bomb, brokering Manchester City FC’s investment in east Manchester, championing the Metrolink and bringing the 2002 Commonwealth Games to the city. His economic leadership and public/private sector partnership approach cut through all the red tape, inertia, petty squabbles and the many reasons for not doing things.
Let’s learn from this example and shape the future of our region.
