Since the Big Bang in 1986 the City has remained an incredibly resilient centre for business, culture and trade. The stereotype that was established at the end of the last century that the City was only home to large corporations has fallen to the wayside. 80% of all businesses in the Square Mile are now micro businesses with fewer than 10 employees and there has been a massive shift towards co-working and shared workspaces. Addressing the theme of ‘identity’, this panel discussion will reflect on how The City of London’s image has changed over the last 30 years.
Panellists will debate how initiatives like One City and organisations like We Work are working towards changing perceptions of the Square Mile and discuss how the City has bounced back after the uncertainty of the 2008 financial crisis and Brexit.
