Presented by; Member- David Landsman, Dr David Landsman O.B.E. is Executive Director (MD) of Tata Limited
Every business comes up against Government and many will find themselves drawn into political issues at least occasionally. From the taxman to planning officials, from regulations to Brexit, dealing with the public sector can seem full of bear traps especially for those – a majority in business – who have managed a successful career without ever seeing Government or politics from the inside.
David Landsman, who has worked in both Whitehall and the corporate sector, and has dealt with governments around the world, will lead a discussion to shed some light on the culture, interests and motivations in the public sector.”
