ONE of the UK’s most recognisable politicians will address over 150 North East business leaders at an event hosted by the region’s largest business membership organisation.

South Shields MP David Miliband will be keynote speaker at this week’s North East Chamber of Commerce (NECC) President’s Club, at Sunderland Football Club’s Stadium of Light on Friday.

The former Foreign Secretary will speak at the fifth meeting of the President’s Club, at a lunch attended by leaders of the region’s largest employers and influential businesses. NECC president John Mowbray said: “I am delighted to welcome David Miliband to President’s Club.

“ I’m certain members will find his unique insight into the machinations of Government and life in opposition incredibly interesting.”

The President’s Club has proved a huge success with regional business, with attendance growing from 50 originally to 150 for this event.

It has also attracted 191 members since its launch almost two years ago.
