Business Breakfast Forums: Spring Series #2 - Strategies for Growth

22nd May, 2019

We've teamed up with Eden District Council to invite Lancaster University to co-host a series of three fully-funded (free!) Business Forum events this spring. These breakfast meetings follow the successful format already used by the Chamber, but introduce some external ideas, expertise and challenges from leading academic thinkers. The topics have been chosen to encourage good discussion and debate around important, but often challenging, subjects.

Breakfast rolls, tea, coffee and fruit juice will be available.  Please let us know your preference for your breakfast roll when you book.

Session #2 - Strategies for Growth

The next Business Breakfast Forum on Weds 22 May has a great lineup of speakers and interactive debate.  The subject is Growth, and the aim is to help you learn about - and shape - growth priorities in the region, and how you can benefit from them.

CEO of Cumbria's Local Enterprise Partnership, Jo Lappin, will deliver an opening presentation, talking about the soon-to-be-launched Local Industrial Strategy and its implications for all businesses.  This will be followed by an Eden perspective from Oliver Shimell.  The business engagement team from Lancaster University will then draw together the key insights from attendees, and use this to shape new offers of business support, as well as building the evidence base for local and regional economic planning.

The business engagement team from Lancaster will be on site at each event, and available until 10am to discuss the wide range of business support services offered.

The events will be held at The George Hotel, Penrith.  Breakfast will be served at 7:45, with the presentations starting promptly at 8:00am.  To book your free place, click here.
