MP includes business briefing in her Big Conversation for the first time

For the first time Hull West and Hessle MP Emma Hardy is urging businesses in her constituency to join her “Big Conversation” and share comments and feedback on the issues they face.

She has undertaken a listening tour of groups and organisations every year since her election in 2017, and has this year added a business briefing to the programme.

She will meet owners and directors of businesses from 2.30pm until 3.30pm on Thursday 20 October at Nordic House, the business and cultural venue which is housed in the Danish Church at the corner of Osborne Street and Ferensway in Hull.

Saying that the opportunity was open to all businesses regardless of whether they are members of any support organisation, she added: “The Big Conversation provides helpful information and an opportunity to gather the thoughts and feelings of constituents, businesses and agencies to give me a better understanding of the challenges they face at a local level.

“All the issues raised in the individual Big Conversation meetings then form the basis of my Parliamentary Action Plan.

“The wider Big Conversation programme is engaging with members of the community and local organisations about topics such as the cost of living, loneliness and isolation, youth mental health, Ukraine, immigration, crime and anti-social behaviour, the environment, violence against women and girls and many more.

“Business owners are likely to have their own views on all of those issues and more, and I want to hear about the things that are good and bad for their organisations and their employees.

The invitation is open to all businesses. We are conscious that time is precious so we will limit the event to an hour and we will aim to follow up with people if they need more time than that.

“I always look forward to the Big Conversation because it’s a fantastic opportunity to get out in the community and hear the issues that matter to people most. As part of that I really want to hear how businesses are coping with the challenges they face and what extra support is needed.”
