Controversial columnist and television presenter Piers Morgan will be one of the high-profile speakers appearing at the 2018 Leadership Symposium.

Taking place on 8 November at the Rothamsted Research Centre in Harpenden, the conference will include some of grocery’s biggest names in its lineup, with Tesco CEO Dave Lewis, Morrisons chairman Andy Higginson and Groceries Code Adjudicator Christine Tacon set to take the stage.

On her first attendance at the event in 2017, Tesco’s chief people officer Alison Horner said: “I hadn’t appreciated the quality of the speakers, the breadth of topics and the sheer inspiration of sharing a room with so much youth and ambition.

“I’d recommend the day to anyone in our industry.”

“I was blown away with the diversity of the audience, the sharp questioning and the informal buzz,” added the Co-op’s Allan Leighton.

Tickets cost £695 + VAT and can be bought by phoning 01865 823895 or emailing pauljmonk@inventabrand.com.

All proceeds from the event go to charities GroceryAid and Working Options.
