Suffolk Chamber’s president, Graham Abbey invites you to join him for a spectacular evening celebrating and networking with the very best of business in Suffolk at our first Prestige Dinner of 2018.


The dinner will take place on 19 March at Wherstead Park and is sponsored by facilities management company and Suffolk Chamber patron, Norse. The guest speaker will be Justin Urquhart-Stewart, one of the most recognisable and trusted media commentators on the world of high finance.

About our guest speaker

Justin’s career has spanned the vineyards of Europe, the docks of Southampton and finance in Asia. He went onto establish Broker Services at what became Barclays Stockbrokers before cofounding 7IM as Head of Corporate Development.

He will be speaking in his usual down-to-earth manner about the state of the global economy including his forthright views on issues such as Brexit, protectionism, the United States under President Trump, growing inequality and cyber security issues.

About the evening event

Our prestige dinner is an excellent opportunity for Chamber member professionals to meet, build new networks, and to relax and enjoy dinner in the splendid surroundings of Wherstead Park. The event will be attended by over 100 of the most senior and influential people from across all sectors and is also an important opportunity for our Suffolk Chamber President to meet colleagues from across the county.

The goody bags are kindly sponsored by St Peter's Brewery and the East of England Cooperative Society.
