Lunch with Chairman of the Conservative Party

The Rt Hon Brandon Lewis MP, Chairman of the Conservative Party, will be the guest speaker at a lunch hosted by Ipswich Suffolk Business Club at Milsoms Kesgrave Hall on Friday 23rd November. The event for members and their guests is supported by Milsoms Kesgrave Hall, Greene King and Genesis PR.

Brandon Lewis was appointed Minister without Portfolio in January 2018 and in the same month became Chairman of the Conservative Party.

The son of a factory owner, Brandon is a qualified barrister and a company director and has been Conservative MP for Great Yarmouth since 2010, caring about making a real difference to people’s lives. He was Minister of State for Immigration from June 2017 to January 2018. Before joining the government, he was an active member of several all-party parliamentary groups, including those for enterprise zones and local growth as well as local government. He was co-chair of a group on coastal erosion and continues to work with colleagues who represent other coastal towns to highlight common issues in their constituencies.

Luke Morris, chair of the Ipswich Suffolk Business Club, said: “Brandon Lewis has developed a reputation for ‘getting things done’ and for his ability to achieve compromise and strike a deal. No mean thing in the context of the Brexit negotiations and we very much look forward to welcoming him as our guest speaker.
