Charlotte Street Partners is delighted to invite you to a discussion in conversation with Jesse Norman, financial secretary to the Treasury.

Thursday 5 November 2020

15:00 - 16:00


As the mechanics of the Treasury work overtime in response to Covid-19, business leaders face a new fiscal reality. Debt levels continue to reach new highs while borrowing rates remain historically low. Meanwhile, how taxation and regulation might change to deal with the economic backlash in the long term is as yet to be determined.

To give us an insight into the workings of the Treasury, and the historical contexts of where political conservatism and capitalism now finds itself, Charlotte Street Partners is delighted to invite you to a discussion in conversation with financial secretary to the Treasury, Jesse Norman.

The discussion will take place under the Chatham House Rule via Zoom webinar on Thursday 5th November 2020 at 3pm and we ask that you RSVP via the following link. Speaking with Jesse will be our creative director, Harriet Moll, who will pose some short introductory questions before chairing the audience Q&A. We expect to have finished proceedings by 4pm.


Jesse Norman is among the most distinguished intellectual politicians of his generation.In addition to his role at the Treasury, the MP for Hereford and South Herefordshire has variously served as paymaster general, minister of state for Transport, and in other positions for the departments of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, and Transport, and is credited as one of the big thinkers currently serving on the government benches.

Before entering politics, Jesse was a director at Barclays and worked as a researcher and lecturer at University College London. He has written widely on the intellectual origins and future direction of political conservatism and capitalism – most recently in the celebrated biography of Adam Smith: What He Thought and Why It Matters (2018).
