Policy & Representation

Political Working Lunch

These events are held on a regular basis throughout the year.  Through attendance, businesses will gain an understanding of the structure and workings of the Westminster (UK) or Brussels (Europe) political world, learning how the political landscape can help with business issues.

Delegates are given access to a Thames Valley based Member of Parliament or South East Member of the European Parliament, subject to availability in the Parliamentary calendar.  They are an ideal opportunity to hear from political influencers and an informal Q&A session forms part of the event, allowing for informal feedback.

The events are held at the Microsoft Campus in Thames Valley Park, Reading and due to generous sponsorship from Microsoft, we are able to offer this lunch at a complimentary delegate rate for Chamber members.

As the UK prepares to exit the European Union we will be running a Brexit Consultation at the Microsoft Campus in Reading on Friday 8th December.  This major event will help inform the business community of the challenges and opportunities that are likely to present themselves not only in the future but also during the key transitional period. Open to members and non members, places are going fast so view this event here and book your place today.
