Join us on the 7th December, either in person at one of our local business schools or virtually, for our 'Accelerating growth in a complex world ' event, in partnership with BEIS, Be the Business, CMI, ICAEW and five business schools across the East Midlands. The session is focussed on small and medium sized businesses.

As leaders of small and medium sized enterprises, you are facing an ever more complex environment, not least rapid evolution in technology, the war for talent, the perils of inflation and an unclear economic outlook. How can you support your organization's to thrive in this complex world? This event will explore some of those challenges and the practical help available to enable business leaders to be even more successful. A panel discussion will focus on key issues facing businesses and solutions that, you as business leaders, can use. The panel will be followed by an opportunity to discuss these challenges at five business schools* across the region, working with peers to share ideas.
