May Chamber Lunch with Qatar Airways and Barclays

This event is proudly sponsored by Qatar Airways

Join us on Thursday 18th May for one of our monthly networking lunches at Beales Hotel in Hatfield. These lunches are intended to provide an opportunity for business networking and each month we will invite a guest speaker to inspire and motivate you all.

We will also be joined by key note speaker William Hobbs, Head of Investment Strategy UK and Europe at Barclays who will be covering the prospects for the world’s economy and capital markets, whilst taking in some of the threats and opportunities from Brexit, the new US administration and a still cluttered European political calendar. 

William joined Barclays in October 2005, working in the Equity Research team, covering the global consumer sector.  He then moved into the Investment Strategy team running global equity strategy for the EMEA division.  He is now head of Investment Strategy for UK and Europe.

William is a fellow of the Securities Institute and has close to 15 years experience in the financial sector.  He has a Masters in international business and economic development at Birkbeck, University of London and is a Chartered Alternative Investments Analyst.


We are delighted to announce our sponsor for this event Qatar Airways.  Qatar Airways is one of the fastest growing airlines operating one of the youngest fleets in the world. Now in its 19th year of operations, Qatar Airways has a modern fleet of 190 aircraft flying to more than 150 key business and leisure destinations across six continents.

Our guest speaker from Qatar Airways is Emma Deering, Manager, Corporate Sales UK & Ireland.
