Podcast 9: Paul Faulkner, CEO, Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce
Paul Faulkner is the CEO of Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce. As the UK’s second city, the Birmingham Chamber covers a huge area with 10 sub-divisions. With major business growth and the recently announced Commonwealth games coming to Birmingham in 2022, there is certainly a lot of change and uncertainty in the region. Paul seems to navigate it with apparent ease and talks about the resilience of his team in doing so too.
Paul says we need to love what we do and it it’s clear that he does. I’ve no doubt that that is replicated throughout the organisation too. From the moment I met Paul, he put me at ease. He’s a genuine people person, a natural leader who cares about his team, his city and everyone he meets. Birmingham is lucky to have someone as passionate and forward thinking to look after its commerce. I definitely think the region is in safe hands.
