Description

We are delighted to announce the speakers for the September 2018 SBP Briefing will be: Alison Griffin, Chief Executive, Southend on Sea Borough Council, who will be launching the Ambition Southend Skills strategy for Southend on Sea. Skills are central to the economic success of Southend on Sea and this publication is the result of a major consultation exercise to ensure this meets the needs of business and supports a happy and prosperous community.

Yvonne Blucher the Managing Director of Southend University Hospital will be talking about Southend Hospital and its role within the changing Healthcare sector and how this impacts on the local community and business. Given the recent changes to the NHS procurement process Richard Phillips from The Association of British Health Tech Industries (ABHI) will be talking about these changes and how this is affecting the associated Medi Tech industry including the potential for new business relationships to be formed.

At so many of these briefings Olympus Keymed is mentioned as a major employer and investor in Southend, we are pleased to announce that Richard Cherry - Director of Corporate Services will be presenting at the event about the importance of Southend to their Business, their community engagement and priorities for the future.

The Briefing is being hosted at the Forum in the centre of Southend. The Forum is the result of a unique and exciting partnership project which brings a brand new state-of-the-art library and learning facilities to the heart of Southend Town Centre. Never before in Britain have three organisations worked in harmony together on such a prestigious and ambitious scheme. The £27m enterprise is delivered jointly by Southend-on-Sea Borough Council, the University of Essex and South Essex College was completed in 2013 and we are now working to deliver Forum II. We look forward to welcoming you to this amazing facility in the heart of town. Map
