Last week saw the annual Interact Group House of Commons lunch event take place.

National President and Director of Seven Architecture, Simon Parker led the proceedings of this sell-out event, with members from across the UK branches coming together to network and discuss the latest development schemes and property news from across their regions. Simon was pleased to introduce Kevin Hollinrake MP to the room. Founder of Hunters Estate Agents and MP for Thirsk & Malton, Kevin then spoke on the current climate of the residential market and offered his thoughts on the issue of Brexit. Kevin then answered questions from members and guests on a wide range across the course of the lunch.

We also welcomed Roni Savage to the event as the Interact President’s guest. As founder of Geotechnical and Environmental Engineers, Jomas Associates, Roni has been successful in growing her business significantly over the past ten years which has led her to winning various individual and business awards; including the NatWest’s Every Woman Award 2018, EY Entrepreneurial Wining Woman 2018 and the Top 100 Financial Times HERoes Award 2018. Roni also promotes her experience as a female boss, the importance of breaking barriers and growing gender equality in the construction industry and has covered these topics on national news such as Sky News and BBC News.

The next National Interact Group event will take place in sunnier climes, in Cannes, as it welcomes members and guests to its MIPIM lunch on Wednesday 13th March at Vegaluna Plage, Cannes.
