BusinessWorks – here to help you navigate a path to future success

21st Jan

Covid-19 has wreaked havoc with business plans nationwide – but it hasn’t stopped the team at BusinessWorks Worcestershire and the Black Country.

Our winter edition, produced at the height of the pandemic, is available online, highlighting inspiring examples of expertise and enterprise that help to power the economy of this exceptionally diverse region day in day out, year in year out, regardless of the obstacles created by the UK’s worst medical emergency in living memory.

Due to the current national lockdown we have been unable to deliver the second edition of BusinessWorks WBC to many hotels, restaurants and other venues forced to shut their doors in the face of the pandemic.

But our commitment to producing a top-quality regional business publication remains as strong as ever, and digital technology enables us to showcase more examples of great entrepreneurship that will help keep the region’s economy buoyant long after Covid-19 becomes a distant memory.

In a world as uncertain as today’s, where so many plans have been put on hold, it is more important than ever that the spirit of entrepreneurship, which continues to bring growth and prosperity to Worcestershire and the Black Country, is highlighted, however difficult the business climate.

The team at BusinessWorks is committed to delivering top-class content across multi-channel platforms, both print and digital. We are here for the duration, and have invested in a sparkling new website that will focus on delivering a regular mix of news and views from the region’s business community.

If you have an inspiring business story to tell, don’t hesitate to get in touch at We can help shine a light on the countless small businesses and ranks of never-say die-entrepreneurs who are vital to helping steer the region – and by extension UK plc – towards a prosperous future.
