Southwark Business Forum

The Southwark Business Forum brings together large business based in the borough with the aim of improving economic wellbeing across Southwark.

The Forum meets four times a year to:

  • act as an advisory board, to assist the council to identify and address the economic needs of Southwark’s business and its residents
  • help the council and its partners to communicate effectively with the Southwark business community
  • initiate, support and promote stronger and more coordinated relationships between major businesses and the council, educational institutions and community organisations, for mutual benefit

The Forum is chaired by Lorna Gavin, Head of Diversity, Inclusion & Corporate Responsibility, Gowling WLG.  

For enquiries relating to the Business Forum, contact localeconomy@southwark.gov.uk.
