Get ready for Tomorrow's Company


The Peterborough Dealmakers will be holding their first 'Networking Lunch' at 12.30pm on Friday, 24 March 2000 at The Great Northern Railway Hotel in Peterborough. The focus of the lunch will be Tomorrow's Company.

Tomorrow's Company will operate in a world changing at a faster pace than ever before. In 1991, Regis McKenna, writing in Harvard Business review predicted -

"In the 1990s there will ONLY be technology companies!"

A challenging thought - but the vision is fast becoming reality. What of people and the skills they will need in this new world? How will companies work effectively if they become "virtual"? How will we cope with circumstances where networks have replaced hierarchies? Can British companies compete with the World's best? And what of the opportunities in the East of England for companies and people to exploit the position of competitive advantage offered to us through our position in one of the world's fastest growing global technology centres?

Alan Barrell, Vice Chairman of The Centre For Tomorrow's Company, will be exploring these issues at this first Dealmakers' networking lunch. Alan will summarise the current status of the East of England in terms of technology base, available finance for technology business growth, the development of a more entrepreneurial culture and the common goal of creating abundance through effective economic development.

Alan Barrel has spent almost thirty years in senior executive positions in technology based industries. Since early 1998 his business life has been spread between non-executive chairmanship of smaller technology companies, engagement with N.W. Brown Capital Partners in raising a new regional early stage venture capital fund of 50 million and work with charities in which he has special interests. These include Papworth Trust and The Royal Society of Arts.

The lunch will be held at 12.3pm on Friday, 24 March 2000 at The Great Northern Railway Hotel in Peterborough and tickets are 18 per head for a two-course lunch and a glass of wine on arrival.
