Our CEO, Paul is joining an impressive roster of business leaders from across the country, including representatives from LEGO, The National Gallery and Ubisoft, to make up the first Policy and Evidence Centre (PEC) for the creative industries.
From advertising to video games, the UK’s creative industry is far-reaching and contributes a great deal to the economy. Because of this, the government is recognising the need for robust industrial policy and is consulting with those who know best.
As an industry champion, Paul will participate in rapid taskforce discussions, speak at panels and policy events, and provide comments on issues and developments in the industry for research purposes.
Speaking about this opportunity, Paul said:
“It is a great honour to be an industry champion for the first ever PEC for the creative industries. It is crucial that the government engages with a wide range of people and organisations to ensure that as a country, we are growing this sector combatting any issues head on.”
As well as contributing to this PEC, Paul is also deputy-chair for Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), co-chair of the LEP’s creative and digital board, and vice chair of Liverpool’s Everyman and Playhouse theatres.
