Rt Hon. Lord Mayor, Michael Mainelli

During his year as Lord Mayor, Alderman Mainelli will act as a spokesman for the City, leading overseas business delegations to key international markets on behalf of the UK financial and professional services industry.

In the role he will meet government representatives, alongside business leaders and policy makers both at home and abroad. He will look to strengthen economic ties with the UK, identify new business opportunities and promote the UK as a top global destination for foreign investment.

During his year as Lord Mayor he will promote his Theme of Connect To Prosper. This initiative is focused on harnessing the City’s vast knowledge ecosystem – with over 40 learned societies, 70 higher education institutions, and 130 research institutes, in and around the City, it is a dynamic hub for innovation. It is made up of many knowledge miles with expertise in art, media, culture, engineering, research, accounting, law, banking, shipping, insurance, and investment management.

Connect to Prosper will bring together thought leaders from the scientific, academic and business worlds to demonstrate the City’s strengths are in solving global challenges. The 2023-24 Mayoral theme will showcase the City’s leadership role as the world’s coffeehouse, where connections between people, firms and institutions lead to new ideas and inventions that benefit the world.
