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. Learn how to focus your efforts for maximum return, based on the needs of your individual organisation.
