BECGconversation Episode 20: Midlands Matters with Cllr Jack Deakin


BECG Birmingham are delighted to bring you ‘BECGconversation, Midlands Matters’ podcast in which Jonny Hodges and Martha Jennings, Account Managers, speak with a number of influential guests who all have experience in shaping the built environment offering in the Midlands. 

They connect with people across the whole built environment spectrum: from CEOs of prominent local charities to Chairs of business groups in the region as well as prominent local politicians to name but a few.  

The series shines a light of the breadth of the built environment sector, and shares an insight into the careers of those who have shaped the infrastructure offering in the Midlands.  

In this episode we chat to Councillor Jack Deakin, who at 23 is one of the youngest councillors in the Midlands, he is also the Chair of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee for the Commonwealth Games.

We speak to him about what attracted him to politics at such a young age and the important role of legacy when talking about ensuring the Commonwealth Games creates sustainable change in the city.
