Our “Building Stronger Communities” event which took place on the 28th November was extremely beneficial to the local businesses and the representatives of the organisations who took part in the event.
The purpose of the event was to allow speakers from organisations to give talks on the benefits of services they can offer to local businesses and chance for a question and answer session.The event included speeches from Tony Jenkin-Jones from EON and Business in the community, speaking about Responsible Business Practice. We then had Colin Nembhard from IBA giving an overview of IBA and the “Shop Local Initiative.” Following on, Nick Taylor from Enable spoke about Apprenticeships and Workforce Development. Victoria Copestake from First Enterprise and Kelly Norris from NBV gave an over view of the support they offer for local businesses. The last talk was kindly from Alison Simpson, the Business Growth Development Specialist from Nottingham City Council. A question and answer took place which was extremely insightful and answered a lot of questions which the attendees had. The event ended with some light refreshments.
The event will be followed up by a “Relationship Marketing” workshop.
