On Monday 29th September, the theme was The Economy. This was to relay the news that the party’s polcies for recovery are working and the UK is now the fastest growing major advanced economy. Throughout the day, members attended speeches by:
- Secretary of State for Transport, Patrick Mcloughlin MP
- Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne MP
- Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Iain Duncan Smith MP
- Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government MP
Members also attended other fringe events throughout the day. This included Conservative Future Media Training with the Young Britons’ Foundation and Conservative Way Forward whereby members got the chance to practice speaking professionally in front of the cameras.
Next came the Conservative Future Reception with Party Chairman Grant Shapps. Here, Grant was speaking to young conservatives, where they could meet him and pose questions.
To conclude the evening was the Team2015 Reception. An event filled with committed campaigners and prominent speakers. They talked about the importance of the next few months and how critical it was to gain an outright majority in May. It was the perfect ending to a busy day.
