Outline of the seminar 


1. 1pm - 'Welcome and Introductions' with Professor Andrew Heyes, Dean of the Faculty of Science and Engineering.  (5 mins)


2. 1.10pm - 'Perspectives from:' Dr Ian Kelly, Chief Executive Officer, Hull and Humber Chamber of Commerce. (20 mins plus Q&A 10 mins).

The Faculty of Science and Engineering have the greatest pleasure to welcome guest speaker, Dr Ian Kelly, CEO of Hull and Humber Chamber of Commerce.  Dr Kelly's talk will reflect on the changes borne from the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and the devolution agenda, what the future looks post-LEP, and what we can expect for our region in the future, particularly following the wonderful Humber Free Port announcement.   

Dr Kelly has an extensive knowledge of business, lobbying and regeneration management which he uses to enhance enterprise and investment across our Yorkshire and Humber region. Ian has previously worked at the House of Commons, in the Australian Parliament, as well as lecturing in British Politics at Leeds University..

In 2011 the Secretary of State requested that Ian and the Chamber Board establish the Humber LEP as a step towards devolved governance for the region in line with the Industrial Strategy Northern Powerhouse agenda. The LEP secured the largest Enterprise Zone in the country and helped bring many important businesses to the region. Their success in securing EU and Government funding supported investment in local businesses and people since its inception. The University of Hull has benefitted from much of the work driven by the Chamber, and have joined other Universities in the North in a commitment to collaborate to support a competitive northern economy.


3. 1.40pm - 'Spotlight on:'  'Principles of effective data visualisation’ 

with Nick Lowthorpe, Research and Enterprise Analyst, Research and Innovation Directorate, University of Hull. (20 mins plus Q&A 5 mins).

How we present data has an impact on how it is interpreted and understood. This talk will cover the importance of effective data presentation, and how to maximise the impact of your visualisation.
