Woking Borough Council hosts a 'Working for Woking' breakfast briefing every year, to help inform members of the business community as to what the Council is doing to support the local economy.
The event is part of local authorities' statutory requirement to consult local business rate payers on its proposals for expenditure for the forthcoming financial year. In addition, topics for discussion include efforts to grow the economy, and major developments in the Borough.
This year, speakers include:
Cllr John Kingsbury, Leader of Woking Borough Council
Ray Morgan OBE, Woking Borough Council Chief Executive
Douglas Sprinks, Woking Borough Council Deputy Chief Executive
Kathy Slack, Director, Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership
Matt Baker, Senior Operations Manager, Skanska Facilities Services
The Council has an important role in providing a strategic and political lead in encouraging business development growth and inward investment, and creating jobs.
All business rate payers are encouraged to attend the consultation, and add their views to how the Council can stimulate the local economy and create wealth and opportunities that the whole community can share.
Spaces are limited, so please book in advance.
