Event description

Description

In an increasingly competitive market for excellent employees, how will your business continue to win new contracts and expand into additional markets?

You run a successful business but would you like to know more about regional plans for the roads, airport and international port trade?

Keynote speaker Gary Jeffries, Chair of Solent LEP will introduce guest speakers Neil Garwood, MD Southampton airport and Mike Sellers, Portsmouth International port director who will share their plans.

Discover the wealth of new opportunities for UK & global growth and expansion; hear real life examples + make new business contacts from across the Solent region during business networking.

We guarantee you two lively, interactive sessions:

'Winning new business across borders'

The ‘business across borders’ session will discuss the ever changing world of the global marketplace. We will explore traveling and businesses overseas – discussing the different protocols, cultures and how to personally prepare, as well as the opportunities of trading and undertaking business on a global scale, providing you with the practical tips to prepare. The University of Portsmouth and Solent University will explain the support available from both institutions.

'Winning new business through learning and skills'

The 'learning and skills' session will provide you with the opportunity to hear from Solent University and the University of Portsmouth on the various hands-on ways you can personally develop your skills, as well as developing staff as an employer. This informative, cooperative session will help you evaluate gaps in your current workforce, support with workforce planning as well as self-evaluation of your own development to become a future leader.

Note: Delegates will have the opportunity to attend both sessions

This will be THE regional business event for the summer.

Places are limited and restricted to 2 representatives from each organisation - reserve your place NOW!
