AN EXPERT joined Fareham businesspeople at the Lysses House Hotel this month.

Lord Digby Jones attended an event organised by the Solent Business Forum and gave a talk to local business owners.

Fareham MP Suella Fernandes manages the forum which holds quarterly events aiming to provide a dialogue between local firms and their MP.

As a cross-bench peer in the House of Lords, Lord Digby holds a number of senior positions within companies across the UK.

Between 2000 and 2006 Lord Digby held the title director general of the Confederation of British Industry.

Suella said: ‘It was great to welcome Lord Digby Jones to speak at our Solent Business Forum. He spoke about the need for innovation and enterprise as a way of building our economy and that Brexit will provide a great opportunity for businesses in Fareham.’

‘The Solent Business Forum is a fantastic opportunity for business to engage in constructive dialogue with their local MP about the issues which matter most to them.’
