The Future of Leeds: An EG-hosted production

Jul 13, 2021

Leeds is changing at a rapid pace. From skyscrapers peppering the skyline and bold regeneration projects to new business hubs on the outskirts of town and the largest city centre park in the UK, there is a lot to be excited about. And don’t forget the knowledge-rich employment base fuelled by the city’s universities. It is not surprising that Leeds was voted the best city in the north of England to live and work in.

But, like other UK cities, it is still mitigating the deep impact of the past 16 months. So as we continue to emerge from the pandemic, how will Leeds achieve its ambition of becoming the best city in the UK?

In this pre-recorded production chaired by EG, Mark Jackson, Development Director at Scarborough Group International, talks about how businesses and employees are re-evaluating their priorities, the likely impact on the office market and how Thorpe Park Leeds is perfectly-positioned to accommodate the ‘New Normal’.

“We very quickly embraced the change rather than fighting.”

Mark Jackson, Development Director, Scarborough Group International

Hear from Mark and a panel of speakers from Shoosmiths, Savills, MEPC and Leeds University Business School discussing what the future holds for the city of Leeds.
