Championing the Midlands Businesses
16th August 2023
Mike Wallis attended the inaugural Embassy Luncheon at Kedleston Country House, Derbyshire.
Connecting business leaders from across the region
The Embassy Luncheons have been designed to bring together like-minded entrepreneurs, business leaders and public figureheads from across the Midlands and wider UK. The aim is to highlight the Midlands as a place for investment, culture and tourism, by connecting leaders and entrepreneurs with unique opportunities whilst supporting our region’s ambition to develop and grow our economy and communities. Its goal is to become the region’s premier business forums for business leaders to come together, all whilst supporting charity organisations and championing the Midlands as a thriving destination for business.
"I found the Embassy Luncheon a breath of fresh air when it comes to connecting people in business across the region. Spatial Global are based in Castle Donington, and we work with businesses throughout the UK and internationally. The region really undersells itself, and hopefully events like this and the Midlands Summit earlier in the year are a sign of a change in thinking."
Mike Wallis Executive Chairman of Spatial Global
The Midlands is one of the largest economic regions in the UK
The Midlands is the largest in terms of manufacturing output and diversity of businesses. The area stands as the central hub for manufacturing and advanced engineering in the UK, responsible for 20% of the country's manufacturing production. This is achieved through the presence of renowned companies and sectors such as Alstom, Bombardier, Jaguar Land Rover, JCB, National Grid, Rolls-Royce, Tarmac, and Toyota UK.
