Team Lincolnshire ambassadors plan to spread the word in London

Team Lincolnshire members will be gathering in London next month to promote Greater Lincolnshire to London and the South East.

The ambassador programme, part of the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership, will host a networking lunch on Monday, February 18 at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel.

Guest speakers will be Councillor Colin Davie, Executive Councillor for Economy & Place at Lincolnshire County Council and a board member at the Greater Lincolnshire LEP, and Liam Scully, Chief Executive of Lincoln City Football Club.

The annual Team Lincolnshire in London event provides a platform to promote investment opportunities within Greater Lincolnshire to London and the South East as well as networking opportunities for members.

Ursula Lidbetter MBE, Chair of the Greater Lincolnshire LEP, said: “Team Lincolnshire members are passionate about promoting our area as an attractive place to live, work and invest and about encouraging new business investment in the region.

“Team Lincolnshire has really taken off over the past year and the enthusiasm of its members is helping to support our economy and secure our future prosperity.”

Councillor Colin Davie said: “Lincolnshire is one of the investment hotspots of the East Midlands, offering three Food Enterprise Zones, housing developments, business parks and leisure and retail projects.

“Our county is home to diverse industries and a booming tourism sector, and with a host of major infrastructure projects coming to fruition, our area is an ideal place to live, work and invest.

“This event is an ideal way to let people know that Lincolnshire is open for business.”

The event is free for Team Lincolnshire members but places are limited to one per business.
