Does your business need a tune-up before making its next journey?

Inspiring Growth is a dynamic business support campaign created by Worcestershire Business Central to discover the unique businesses in the county that have strong growth ambitions, an entrepreneurial spirit, and are looking to maximise their opportunities.

As part of our Inspiring Growth initiative, Worcestershire Business Central are delivering two independent but inter-linked series of events, aimed at providing local businesses with information and key issues to consider at the various stages of their business journey.


The first series of events are the Inspiring Growth Roundtables. These roundtable seminars feature expert speakers delivering specific tactical knowledge and skills relating to the pillars of growth: Strategy, People, Execution, and Growth.

Businesses will take away key actions to implement within their business using the information accrued during the session. Furthermore, attendees will have the opportunity to feature on our exclusive Inspiring Growth Business Directory, where peers will be able to share skills and find business support.

The next Inspiring Growth Roundtable will be taking place on 9 May 2019 at the Gainsborough House Hotel from 9:00am to 1:00pm.
