key note speaker for this year’s forum is Minnie Moll, Joint Chief Executive of the East of England Co-operative and Prince Charles’ Ambassador for Responsible Business in the East of England.

Ray Herring, Chairman of the East Suffolk Partnership, said: “We’re proud to be seeing growth here in east Suffolk and we are also looking to deliver a lot of changes affecting local government, communities, businesses and the people that live and work here.
