The keynote speech at the BMA Conference will be given by MP Iain Duncan Smith.
Smith was first elected to parliament in 1992 and currently is the MP for Chingford and Woodford Green. He was the leader of the Conservative Party from 2001 until 2003.
“We are delighted that Iain will be part of this year’s conference,” said BMA CEO Yvonne Orgill. “He is a well-respected and influential British politician. We are looking forward to his insights into the current political landscape and his views on the UK as a great investment opportunity in the future.
“Other speakers are being confirmed and full details will be announced shortly. Tickets are already selling fast, for what promises to be the industry’s most important annual business event, so save the date and book soon.”
Outside of politics, Smith saw active service in Northern Ireland and Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and served in Canada and Germany, as part of the Scots Guards. His business activities have included working with GEC-Marconi, a defence company, and property specialist Bellwinch. He has also been on the board of Jane’s Information Group, a publishing company.
