Andrew Jackson brings leading business figures together to field questions at Humber Business Week

We’re looking forward to hosting a ‘Question Time’ panel discussion next month, which will bring together a panel of the region’s leading business figures to discuss some of the big questions from the audience in an hour of discussion and debate. 

Simon Green, chief executive of Humber Freeport; Jo Barnes, managing director of Sewell Group; Diana Taylor, managing director of Future Humber; and James Doyle, group managing director of J.R Rix, will share their expertise and valuable insight into the issues raised by attendees. Subjects will likely include inward investment and the Humber Freeport, recruitment and retention, social mobility and the potential impact of a general election. 


Business leaders facing questions as part of Andrew Jackson Solicitors’ Humber Business Week event are, from top left, Jo Barnes, managing director of Sewell Group; James Doyle, group managing director of J R Rix; Simon Green, chief executive of Humber Freeport; (bottom from left) Diana Taylor, managing director of Future Humber; host Mark Pearson-Kendall, managing partner at Andrew Jackson and event chair David Laister, PR and media director at Fred Marketing.


The event, which takes place on 5 June during Humber Business Week, will be introduced by our Managing Partner, Mark Pearson-Kendall, and will be chaired by Dave Laister, newly appointed director at Fred Marketing. A familiar face to many, Dave previously served as a senior business journalist across the Humber for almost two decades. 

Mark Pearson-Kendall said: – “We’re really looking forward to hosting what looks set to be a lively and insightful discussion around some of the key issues affecting the region’s businesses. I have no doubt that our panellists will provide plenty of food for thought. 

“Humber Business Week is always a hugely successful week of opportunity for the region, and we are excited to be taking part again in this diverse programme of events.” 

Although free to attend, places are very limited and may be reserved by emailing
