Join us on 20 June 2019 for our monthly networking lunch, being held at the Cheshunt Marriott Hotel. These events are intended to provide an opportunity for business networking and each month we invite a guest speaker to inspire and motivate you.
We are delighted to announce that this lunch is brought to you in partnership with Ambition Broxbourne and is kindly sponsored by the Hertfordshire LEP.
Our guest speaker for this event will be Michèle Dix CBE, Managing Director, Crossrail 2, Transport for London. Michèle originally spoke at our lunch in January 2018 and is returning to provide an update on progress towards Crossrail 2: the work of the Independent Affordability Review, the latest iteration of the Strategic Outline Business Case, and the process of the Spending Review later this year.
Michèle will be joined by Cherie Norris, Enterprise Zone Manager, Hertfordshire LEP.
Michèle started her career at the Greater London Council (GLC) after completing her PhD in transport and land use planning and became a chartered civil engineer through the GLC’s transport planning graduate scheme. She spent fifteen years in the private sector with Halcrow Fox becoming the board director for urban transport.
She joined Transport for London (TfL) in 2000 as director of Congestion Charging on a job share basis with Malcolm Murray-Clark and Managing Director of Planning in 2007. Michèle led TfL's strategic thinking on the future transport needs of London, testing and challenging solutions; providing clear direction on appropriate transport solutions for the future; she was responsible for the Mayor’s Transport Strategy and transport requirements for the Mayor’s 2050 Infrastructure Plan; coordinating the implementation of local plans and borough partnerships; and developing major scheme interchanges.
Michèle is now responsible for developing Crossrail 2 and gaining funding and powers for it. Michèle is a visiting professor for UCL and is chair of an international committee PRESCOM for the UITP which promotes public transport research and best practice globally. Most recently, Michèle has joined the Major Projects Association as a Board member and has become a Trustee for the London Transport Museum.
