New initiative, designed to support businesses within the region

Business growth is integral to successful regional economies. However many firms are constrained by factors such as employee skills, finance, innovation, and strategic planning.  To support companies in addressing these obstacles, Professor Mark Gilman has developed a diagnostic resource which focuses on helping organisations grow quicker, work better, and perform more competitively.

During the event, you will hear how your business can use this diagnostic tool to recover and improve performance during the current economic climate.

Ask your ‘green business’ questions to our sustainability experts 

Becoming greener not only helps improve the environment, but it also enables your business to develop the resilience needed to tackle the global challenges we are now faced with. We know that growing a business whilst being kind to the planet isn’t always easy, so this is your opportunity to ask our panel of sustainability experts your questions.
