09:30 AM 10:30 AM Main Hall

A skilled workforce, inspirational leadership and a blueprint for growth are important factors for sustaining the health of any economy and Guernsey is no different. There are many financial centres in competition with each other, so it is important to encourage debate on the island about how these factors can help Guernsey prosper. Industry engagement, including the work of voluntary bodies such as Bright Futures LBG, can play a major part in developing this strategy. - Yuri Bender, FT
