THE former chief executive of the Millennium Dome, PY Gerbeau, is coming to Comet country to speak to local businesses.
PY will join businesses in Stevenage for a special event next Thursday, February 23, marking the official launch of the newly independent Gunnels Wood Business Partnership (GWBP).
Hosted by the dedicated management team, GWBP will showcase its plans to boost the local economy and support the local business community
PY is a leading business speaker, professor of entrepreneurship at Imperial College and chief executive of X-Leisure, the largest leisure group in the UK.
GlaxoSmithKline's offices in Gunnels Wood Road will provide the setting for the official launch event and to show his support for the new initiative, PY Gerbeau will be a keynote speaker.
Former vice-president of EuroDisney, PY has a lifetime of experiences and a wealth of business knowledge to share with the Stevenage business community.
He will be joined by Martin Wigley, site operations manager at GSK and Nick Gibson, chief executive of GWBP, who will open the proceedings.
