The Windsor Debates are a groundbreaking series of events, exclusively for senior level business leaders of major public and private organisations. The Debates are held under the Chatham House Rule and therefore provide a confidential forum for pooling strategies and solutions and identifying areas for clarification and research.
This rolling programme feeds the views and concerns of leading UK companies into the Government’s decision-making process at both national and European levels, in support of business-friendly policies that might otherwise be overlooked.
Themes for the Windsor Debates derive from the most pressing concerns of our Business Alliance members, which currently include: Globalisation and the Digital Economy; The Challenge of Economic Change: can we deliver the skills for tomorrow?; Energy and the Economy; and Terrorism and Security.
Other topics will emerge as members and sponsors take a lead in supporting and shaping the programme; they will be particularly well-placed to benefit by association.
The Windsor Debates aim to:
- facilitate debate and discussion amongst leading businesses about global issues that impact on their operations
- use key findings and recommendations as a basis of further exploration with the wider business community so that a balanced view across businesses of all sizes and in all sectors is obtained
- support UK business and the UK economy by disseminating findings and recommendations to the UK Prime Minister and key stakeholders in order to strengthen Government policies and strategies that affect the business environment
