The Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has announced details for its flagship event of 2023/24, ‘Worcestershire: The BIG Conversation’.
Taking place on Friday 23 February, ‘Worcestershire: The BIG Conversation’ will be a landmark event for the county, bringing together the public, private and education sectors to discuss the opportunities and challenges that face the county over the next 20 years.
With relevant topics at the heart of the event, attendees whether CEOs, Managing Directors, or business professionals, will not only have the chance to hear about the opportunities but actively engage in discussions that can influence and shape the local economy.
Worcestershire: The BIG Conversation, running from 8:30am until 1pm, will be split into three key themes, skills and training, innovation and growing your business. The conversation will cover workforce planning and how to create your future workforce, innovation and how we can grow innovation within Worcestershire and recognise when it is happening, and the county’s business support package, and how Worcestershire businesses can be supported to grow and prosper.
Each session will provide an overview of the current work being delivered by the Worcestershire LEP and its partners, as well as creating a pipeline with attendees of what future projects could be delivered to further grow Worcestershire.
Discussion and interactivity will be at the heart of the event. The Worcestershire LEP wants attendees to fuel the conversation around these topic areas and engage, debate and influence the LEP and its partners.
Paul Walker MBE, Chair of the Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “I am delighted to be able to invite the community to join us for ‘Worcestershire: The Big Conversation’. We believe in the power of collaboration and the impact it can have on our county. This event is a unique opportunity for stakeholders to come together, share insights, and contribute to the growth and prosperity of Worcestershire.”
“I encourage anyone who lives, works, invests or has a passion for Worcestershire, to join us on the 23 February and help ensure Worcestershire continues to be a connected, creative, dynamic economy for all.”
