Hosts announced for BMF Member’s Day

Miriam Staley, who kick-started a high profile career at the age of 26 when she made it to the final five of the first series of The Apprentice, will host the Business Conference at BMF Members’ Day on September 20th.


Following her appearance on the TV show she joined Lloyds TSB, heading up their Corporate Sponsorship programme during their partnership with the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.  Since then she has developed her career as a dynamic facilitator as well as an engaging speaker.  Miriam, who is one of the few people Lord Sugar has publicly apologised for firing from The Apprentice, says her life’s purpose is “to communicate and inspire”.


The day-long business programme takes the theme “Building Beyond Brexit” and will include construction industry speakers, expert economic analysis, thought-provoking presentations from business leaders beyond the building industry, and workshop sessions where delegates can raise issues and question experts directly.


Members Day concludes with an Awards Dinner to celebrate the achievements of young people working in our industry, hosted by Dominic Holland.  Described by the Sunday Times as “the UK’s master of observational comedy”, Dominic’s material is accessible to all audiences.  He has performed three sell-out shows at the Edinburgh festival, winning a coveted Perrier Award, written and performed in two comedy series for BBC R4 and appeared on numerous TV and radio shows as well as theatres and comedy clubs all over the country.


BMF MD, John Newcomb said: “Members’ Day has a new look this year with a more in-depth programme of business presentations and, for the first time, our Award ceremony held on the same day.  With this in mind we wanted to refresh the overall presentation of both elements and I know our two great hosts, Miriam and Dominic, will add that extra dimension.”


Members’ Day 2017 will be held at Jurys Inn Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire.  The Business Conference and the BMF’s black-tie Awards Dinner both take place on 20th September.  The BMF’s annual Golf Tournament will be held on the previous day, 19th September, along with our other social activities, Quad Biking and Rifle Shooting


The BMF thanks our Members’ Day headline sponsor, Encon Insulation, and Marsh Industries, Monument Tools and First Event who sponsor the Awards Dinner and Golf Tournament and Social Activities.
