Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, my Business Advisory Board has been involved in City Hall’s response to London’s economic challenges and recovery work. The Board met virtually in July to discuss these challenges, our responses and economic recovery. Members’ have contributed in a number of ways from sharing insight and research on Covid-19 economic scenarios and its impact on London and Londoners to giving advice on a range of issues, including supporting the cultural, creative sector and the night-time economy and how to ensure diversity is embedded in all strands of recovery work, such as supporting women back to work. Members have also participated in joint roundtable with the government sharing practical ideas for the capital’s economic recovery.
