Award-winning journalist to speak at BMF Members’ Day  


Award-winning BBC business journalist and broadcaster, Joe Lynam, has been confirmed as the latest speaker at the BMF’s Members’ Day Annual Conference which takes place at St George’s Park on 27 September 2018.  

Joe’s business brief covers companies, the economy, EU, UK and Ireland and he regularly appears on BBC News, BBC Breakfast and Radio 4’s flagship Today Programme. He won the 2018 Headline Money Award for Business Story of the Year after exposing RBS’ mistreatment of its small business customers – a report that led to an enquiry by MPs on the Treasury Committee in the House of Commons. In 2016, reporting for the Money Box programme on Radio 4, he won the prestigious Wincott Award for Financial Journalism for his work on fraud and vishing.  

BMF CEO, John Newcomb said: “Joe has a wealth of knowledge across business and the economy in the UK and Europe and we are looking forward to hearing his take on the factors that will affect the merchant sector in the coming year.”  

The theme of BMF Members’ Day Annual Conference 2018 is “The Future belongs to the Bold”. The Business Conference is followed by the BMF’s black-tie Awards Dinner, which celebrates the achievements of young people working in the industry, both take place on 27 September.   

The BMF’s annual Golf Tournament and other social activities will be held on the previous day, 26 September, when delegates will have a unique opportunity to look around St George’s Park, England football’s magnificent training facility, where Member’s Day is being held.  

The BMF thanks Encon Insulation, the headline sponsor of BMF Members’ Day Annual Conference and Awards 2018, and Marsh Industries and Monument Tools, who sponsor the Awards Dinner and Golf Tournament. There are limited delegate places remaining for the event. To book your place visit the BMF website at www.bmf.org.uk/events or contact: june.upton@bmf.org.uk.
