Event description

Description

Join our host, BBC presenter Sian Lloyd, for a day focussing on the needs of smaller businesses in North Wales.

We will be covering three main themes:

• Fair work and employability – hear about the Welsh Government’s new “fair work” agenda and how this will affect small firms, HMP Berwyn’s approach to rehabilitation of offenders and an inspiring case study from Prince’s Trust Enterprise Programme which supports and funds young people to explore their ideas and start their own businesses.


• North Wales Growth Deal and what this means for North West Wales -- get an update on the Growth Deal from Iwan Trefor Jones of North Wales Economic Ambition Board, hear from Sasha Davies (Horizon Nuclear Power and Chair of the N Wales Regional Skills Partnership), on delivering the skills needed to support regional economic growth and learn from a local North West Wales business about its view of how business growth in North Wales can be supported.


• Innovation and the “missing middle”—why is there a lack of medium sized firms in Wales, and what does that mean for the Welsh economy? Does this “missing middle” impact on the development of new products? Hear from Bangor University’s innovation and product design champions and get an update on what MSparc – the Menai Science Park will be doing to support business growth.
