Transforming childcare: how government and businesses can drive inclusion and productivity in London

The average costs of childcare in London are more than double compared to some other UK regions. This has impacted parents and carers — acting as a barrier for those entering and returning to the labour market. BusinessLDN has been reflecting on these challenges over the last few months, in partnership with KPMG and Central District Alliance, by leading a joint project putting the business lens on the lack of affordable, quality childcare in the capital.



In discussion with Andy Lord, London’s Transport Commissioner – unlocking London’s potential through transport

With the Mayoral election in May and a General Election expected later in the year, transport will be one of the key themes in both elections. Join us for a discussion and Q&A with Andy Lord, Commissioner for Transport for London (TfL) to hear about the key challenges and opportunities that lie ahead and how TfL is seeking to navigate them to unlock London’s full potential.

BusinessLDN at MIPIM 2024: Women’s Networking Brunch

Following last year’s successful event, and one week after International Women’s Day we continue the theme with our Women’s brunch.

Taking place at MIPIM, Cannes.



London LSIP: Transforming London’s health & social care workforce

The government’s NHS Long Term Workforce Plan sets out a vision to train, retain and reform the workforce, and put the NHS on a sustainable footing. Yet as the London Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP) sets out, there are over 30,000 vacancies in the health service in the capital, and the social care sector also faces labour shortages and high staff turnover.

BusinessLDN’s manifesto for the next Mayor

In the run-up to the London Mayoral election on 2 May, BusinessLDN will be publishing its manifesto to set out key priorities that the candidates should focus on to ensure the capital remains the best city in the world in which to do business – working with and for the whole UK. 2024 is expected to be the first time that the Mayoral election takes place in the same year as a general election so it presents an opportunity to drive change at a local, London and national level.
