NFB Business & Skills announces Tessa Jowell as keynote speaker for IMPACT roadshow events

The National Federation of Builders is delighted to announce Tessa Jowell as keynote speaker for their upcoming corporate social responsibility (CSR) roadshows to be held across England as part of their CITB funded programme, IMPACT.  


The federation’s specialist training and business development unit, NFB Business and Skills, supported by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), is hosting a series of IMPACT: CSR in construction events with the aim of helping SME contractors to develop, deliver and report on their CSR activities in a way that helps them achieve the benefits an effective corporate social responsibility strategy can bring.


Tessa, currently Professor of Practice at the London School of Economics will be a keynote speaker at the forthcoming Roadshows 2017.   Tessa, a well-known and respected political speaker will discuss the importance of being a responsible business in the construction industry by focusing on investment in skills to support corporate social responsibility impacts. 


Tessa, honoured with the Freedom of the City of London in 2014, played an instrumental role in bringing the Olympic Games to Britain. As Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport and was the first in government to back the bid and as Olympics Minister, working tirelessly to keep preparations on track for an outstanding display in 2012.  Her passion for education, public health, employment and equality is driven by her belief that everyone should have the same opportunity to succeed.  With her political career spanning ministerial positions for Women, Public Health, Work and Pensions, and Regional Affairs Tessa will provide delegates attending the roadshows with valuable information to take away.


Registration is now open for the roadshows taking place in Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, London and Bristol.   Other industry relevant and locally relevant speakers will also provide important knowledge on their experiences of CSR and how it is shaping both the sector and the procurement landscape.
