Guest of Honour: Richard Hooper, Chair of the Postal Services Sector Review Panel

This seminar is being structured to offer policymakers and stakeholders the opportunity to discuss issues for the future of postal services in the UK, including those raised in the recent update - Saving the Royal Mail's universal postal service in the digital age. We expect discussion to include views on the impact private capital may have on the postal service, prospects for the modernisation programme and the challenges of the possible move of regulatory functions from Postcomm to Ofcom.

We are delighted that Billy Hayes, General Secretary, Communication Workers Union (CWU); Richard Hooper, Chair of the Postal Services Sector Review Panel and Jo Shanmugalingam, Executive Director, Shareholder Executive, Department for Business, Innovation & Skills will be delivering keynote addresses.

Other speakers include Sue Barton, EALA Postal services Lead, Accenture; Roger Darlington, Board Member, Consumer Focus; Clive Davenport, Chair, Trade and Industry Committee, Federation of Small Businesses (FSB); Jim Latham, Member, Communities Against Post Office Closures (CAPOC); George Thomson, General Secretary, National Federation of SubPostmasters (NFSP); Alex Walsh, Associate Director, Direct Marketing Association (DMA) and Nick Wells, Chief Executive, TNT Post. Further senior speakers are currently being approached.

Nia Griffith MP, Shadow Minister for Business, Innovation and Skills and Mike Weir MP, SNP Westminster Spokesperson for Trade and Industry, Energy and the Environment have kindly agreed to chair this seminar.

This event is CPD certified.
