Uncharted: levelling up

New episode on levelling up the UK economy available to stream

‘Levelling up’ remains a key phrase in the rhetoric of the current government. But what does it mean for businesses in the new COVID-effected landscape? Is regional equality a possibility at a time when local authorities share a £3.2bn funding shortfall?

Alternatively, has the deconstruction of 9-5 working patterns and commutes opened up new opportunities for regional businesses to attract new talent and prosper?

Episode two of Uncharted: the road to recovery covers off these points and considers how coronavirus may indeed prove the great leveller that the regions have long called for.

Joining our host Rebecca Burn-Callander (former enterprise editor at The Telegraph) on the podcast to discuss the issue this week are Northern Powerhouse Partnership Director Henri Murison and Jamie Hinton, CEO of Sheffield-based tech firm Razor. We also hear from FRP Partners Martyn Pullin and Glyn Mummery on the ways regional businesses are evolving and why it’s too simplistic to describe levelling up as a North vs South debate.
