Transforming Enterprise – A Collaborative Approach to inclusive growth

  • Transforming Enterprise
     15th April 2019
     4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Entrepreneurship plays a vital role in the region’s economy; the purpose of this event is to bring together leading researchers, policy makers, business and students to share latest thinking in how we can best collaborate to improve growth for Small and Medium sized companies (SMEs) and the economy in general. Subjects such as business ambition, strategy, supply chains, leadership, finance, innovation, productivity and diversity will form part of the discussion. A key focus of the event is to bridge the gap between evidence and practice which informs an inclusive agenda for policy and business practice for small and medium sized enterprises. Collaboration between different types of organisations, expertise and experience is essential in delivering growth. The afternoon will discuss how we can all be effective in doing so.
