Political Working lunches (PWLs)

With sitting MPs and MEPs as speakers, these policy driven events regularly attract a wide cross-section of delegates. By attending the events, businesses gain an understanding of the structure and workings of Westminster and how the political landscape can help with issues that are affecting their business. A question and answer session forms part of the event, allowing for informal feedback. At previous events, TVCC has hosted The Rt Hon, Alok Sharma MP, Lord Ed Vaizey, Anneliese Dodds and Layla Moran, amongst others. 

These policy driven events were hosted by Microsoft for many years, at their headquarters in Reading but during 2020 and 2021 the events took a webinar-style format. This provided a platform for local MPs to meet with business representatives for constituency-focused discussions under the overarching theme of “Restart, Rebuild & Renew”. 

We will be sharing our 2022 PWL Programme in the near future.
