Speaker: Dr Adam Marshall, Director General, British Chambers of Commerce

The skills gap has been a concern for businesses, particularly in the STEM sector, for some time now as companies must make greater efforts to attract and retain talent. As the UK prepares to leave the EU, efforts must be made to keep the UK an attractive destination for talent. Employers will need to address issues of finding new talent and upskilling existing talent to future-proof their assets. Much can be done with the help of Government in terms of apprenticeships but SMEs will have to take measures to help fix the skills gap and we look forward to hearing from Dr Marshall on various ways to do this.

Adam Marshall was appointed Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce in October 2016. His principal role is to represent and champion the interests of accredited Chambers of Commerce and their tens of thousands of business members – covering every size and sector of business, and employing over five million people in the UK.
