Paul has also been recognised for his outstanding leadership, winning KPMG Chief Executive of the Year for the construction industry and PwC ‘Private Company Chief Executive of the Year’. During his tenure at the helm, Wates Group won the Business in the Community Company of the Year and the J.P. Morgan Best UK Family Business Award.

Paul will be joined by a line-up of leading speakers addressing important issues that we all face. Eight breakout sessions during the day, each lasting 45 minutes, will cover topics such as accessing growth finance, leadership 4.0, accessing talent, innovation strategy, building high performance teams amongst others – all genuine learning opportunities, the subjects crowd sourced from your peer group.
