Humber LEP unveils Business Week events calendar

22nd May

Whether you’re a start-up, an SME or an established enterprise, or even if you’re just interested in the direction of the Humber region – the Humber LEP’s daily events will have something for you to sign up to.
As Business Week kicks off on Destination Monday on Monday, June 3, businesses are invited to a half-time team talk with a difference at the KCOM. Using the stadium’s changing rooms, Dave Pendleton (left) of Trans2 Performance, which has delivered leadership programmes for Hull FC and the Combined Forces Sports Team, will deliver a fast-paced 45-minute session on the characteristics of outstanding team leadership. Sessions take place at 11am and 12.15pm.
Also on the Monday, Growth Hub Live is a chance for SMEs to drop in and connect with business advisers from the Humber Business Growth Hub and its partner support and funding organisations – such as the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund, Skills Support for the Workforce and the Department for International Trade. This will help businesses discover how to access the support to scale up and continue their journey to success.
On Tuesday, June 4, Kishor Tailor, chief executive of the Humber LEP, will be giving a presentation entitled “A digitally enabled region, a sustainable future” at Transforming the Humber 2019 – the CIPD Humber Branch Conference between 8am and 1pm at the Mercure Hull Grange Park Hotel.
Meanwhile, Wednesday, June 5 sees the arrival of the LEP’s Annual Business Summit, where business leaders from across the Humber discuss growth in the region throughout the past 12 months, and the LEP will unveil the first proposals for its ambitious new Industrial Strategy for the Humber.
This will be followed by another opportunity to access the Growth Hub team and learn more about the support available to SMEs throughout the Humber. Both events will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Forest Pines Spa & Golf Resort in Broughton near Scunthorpe, with the summit taking place between 8.30am and 10.30am and the Growth Hub Live event taking place between 11am and 1pm.
For those in the construction industry, on Thursday, June 6, Building Excellence for Contractors…You Need to Be in It to Win It takes place at 8.30am at Country Park Hotel Hessle. This is a chance to learn what it takes to win more construction bids, get onto the supply chain and become part of the construction success across the Humber.
Finally, Friday, June 7 sees the arrival of the Business Day at Bridlington Spa. As one of the main sponsors of the event, the LEP will be on-hand providing information and engaging with guests on its Industrial Strategy, while a “breakout session” with the Growth Hub will provide an opportunity to let businesses better understand how the LEP is able to help them in practical ways.
Lord Haskins, chairman of Humber LEP, said: “Humber Business Week is a great demonstration of what the region’s business community can achieve when we all work together.
“We will be supporting this collaborative approach in our events this Business Week, including at our Annual Business Summit. Our Humber Business Growth Hub’s £6m #GrowMySME programme will also be delivering events throughout the week, and we will again be supporting the Business Day at Bridlington Spa on Friday.
“We will also be launching our Industrial Strategy prospectus during Business Week, which will set out the next stage of the Humber’s plan for growth. I hope you will take part in discussing this important business-led strategy with us.”
