Northern Powerhouse Partnership at our Future Cities Forum
The Northern Powerhouse Partnership will be speaking at our February forum at RIBA North in Liverpool.
Henri Murison is its first permanent Director and he has established the Northern Powerhouse Partnership as the business led organisation which convenes the North together.
From securing further investment to guarantee that HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail will work together as an integrated high speed network, to challenging for a better deal for the most disadvantaged from the education system, his team is focused on how government, business and partners can drive the North’s ambitions.
Before joining the Partnership, he worked in senior research and public affairs roles for the West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner and the Yorkshire Building Society, as well as previously serving as Cabinet Member for Quality of Life at Newcastle City Council.
We will be continuing the theme of investment in the North of England at our June forum to be held at City Hall, London where Phil Graham, Chief Executive of the National Infrastructure Commission opened our discussions with a speech on the need for joined-up infrastructure and housing.
