With our President’s Annual Lunch less than a month away, we are delighted to announce that Minister for the Economy Conor Murphy MLA will be attending and making a keynote speech to guests.

Conor Murphy will join our MC Jeananne Craig to discuss how we can unlock the massive potential of the North West through investment and job creation. The announcement follows on from the Minister’s recent visit to the North West in which he said:

“Regional balance will be a key element of my economic strategy. Derry has a strong entrepreneurial spirit and huge ambitions for the future. The North West has huge growth potential and I intend to see that potential realised.”

Keynote Speaker Conor Murphy MLA

We are looking forward to hearing from the Minister about his plans for the North West in more detail, and welcome his further engagement with the Derry business community.

The Minister joins Chair of Tourism NI Ellvena Graham OBE and Head of Culture at Derry City and Strabane District Council Aeidin McCarter as one of our esteemed speakers – Ellvena and Aeidin will be in conversation with our MC Jeananne Craig for a fireside chat around the value of place. The lunch will focus on our President’s theme of ‘place’ and will also be an opportunity to introduce the President’s chosen charity for 2024.

Panelists Ellvena Graham OBE, Aeidin McCarter and MC Jeananne Craig
