Paul Mason will be talking about the economy and the political landscape at the GCA 2020 annual conference.

Paul will take to the stage on Tuesday, January 28 at the conference at the Mercure Grand Hotel in Bristol.
He said: “I am looking forward to attending the GCA annual conference. As we’re in such important economic and political times currently, my speech will be reflecting this.
“I will talk about how the garden centre industry will be affected by the political landscape. Whatever that may be in January.
“Of course, there will be mention of Brexit also, which is a pertinent subject for all industries. Attendees will be able to take all my advice back with them to their garden centres and use it.”
Paul was Channel 4 News’ Economics Editor covering all aspects of the UK and global economy, markets, labour and commerce. He also served in the same role for BBC2’s Newsnight.
He was also Channel 4’s Culture and Digital Editor, examining the social, cultural and business impact of the new age of digital and online.
Before joining the commercial broadcaster, he took over from Stephanie Flanders as Newsnight’s Economics Editor. This was after several years as Business and Industry Correspondent.
Paul was also Deputy Editor of Computer Weekly. He has won the Workworld Business Journalist and Wincott awards for his China reports. He also won the Diageo African Business Reporting Award for his acclaimed film on how mobile phones are changing the continent.
Iain Wylie, Chief Executive of the GCA, said: “We’re thrilled to have Paul Mason joining us for our conference.
“The economy is a important topic for the garden centre industry. It will be interesting to hear what Paul has to say. We’ll also be keen to hear his views on Brexit and the political landscape and how that can also affect us.”
