2018 Convention

Contribute your combined skills, expertise and influence


The People are the Powerhouse Convention

20 November 2018

Northern Commercials Stadium, Bradford City FC,  9.30am – 4.30pm

Collaborate. Debate. Network. Share. Inspire!

Following the huge success of our 2017 event, this years’ Convention will continue to inspire change in the North.  Our mission is to bring people together for meaningful dialogue and sharing, be they practitioners, policy makers, opinion formers, young people, businesses, MPs or community groups. 

We believe that by sharing together, understanding the issues, finding solutions and celebrating the great things that are already happening, that better lives for all of us in the North can be achieved. 

It is an opportunity for YOU to share and explore with others, how we can truly deliver a more prosperous and inclusive North.
