Innovation, Skills and Citizenship: Financial and Professional Services in the Digital Era

Join us for a breakfast with Alderman Peter Estlin, Lord Mayor of the City of London. Alderman Estlin will consider opportunities for the UK to work more closely with Hong Kong firms in areas such as Fintech, Green Finance and Cyber. In addition, he will talk about his focus on championing Digital Skills and addressing Digital and Social inclusion. The Lord Mayor will also take this opportunity to highlight London’s continued strength as an international financial centre despite the uncertainties around Brexit.

Alderman Peter Estlin took office as the 691st Lord Mayor of the City of London on 9 November 2018.

His mayoral theme is “Shaping tomorrow’s City today”, promoting digital innovation and smart cities, alongside the importance of digital skills and lifelong learning, ensuring that we have the talent to support business and innovation into the future, as well as ensuring that no one is left behind.
