Helen Watson highlights IoD business breakfast as valuable networking meeting

16th June, 2016

Our Head of Employment Law Helen Watson, chair of IoD North Wales, has praised the benefits of the upcoming business breakfast, as a valuable networking meeting and opportunity to gain insight into future plans to support the North Wales business community.

Read the full story below.

Liverpool John Lennon Airports (LJLA) director of air service development will highlight the importance of North Wales businesses to the airports strategy at a business event in Conwy.

Mark Povall will discuss the airport’s relationship with North Wales and the plans focusing on rail and road links to the region at the joint Institute of Directors (IoD) and North Wales Business Club breakfast.

Mark has 20 years’ experience in the airport industry, with previous positions at Abu Dhabi Airports Company and Brussels Airport. His role at LJLA involves attracting more air carriers to the airport to drive its growth.

He also holds a master’s degree in air transport management.

Helen Watson, chair of IoD North Wales, said: “This event will provide an ideal opportunity for companies to find out more about plans to support the North Wales business community and attract visitors.

“The Northern Powerhouse is a hot topic and Mark will demonstrate how Liverpool John Lennon Airport benefits this region currently, and how the implementation of its strategy will impact businesses in North Wales.

“With free entry to members and non-members, it is likely to be a popular networking meeting and I urge people to book early to avoid disappointment.”

“This event will provide an ideal opportunity for companies to find out more about plans to support the North Wales business community and attract visitors.”

The breakfast takes place on Thursday 7 July from 8am to 9.30am at the Deganwy Quay Hotel. To book, contact Jean Barlow on 07789 348817 or via email [email protected]
