Businesses in Blaby District are invited to attend a free breakfast meeting in October to share ideas for boosting the local economy, funding opportunities and apprenticeship incentives.
Blaby District Council is hosting the “Blaby District Means Business” event for local companies on Wednesday 16 October at the Hilton Hotel, Leicester.
The meeting starts at 7.30am with the promise of a free tasty breakfast on arrival followed by a brief speaker programme with topics on growth and priorities for economic development, funding programmes plus incentives on offer to help employers to recruit an apprentice.
Cllr Tony Greenwood, portfolio holder for Planning, Economic Development and Housing Strategy at Blaby District Council, said: “The Council has produced a priority action plan for economic development and needs the input of our local businesses to shape this and really make a difference for our local economy.
“Small to medium sized enterprises are encouraged to book up to hear news of funding and support programmes that may benefit them.”
The programme includes speakers from Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership, Leicestershire County Council and South Leicestershire College, plus the chance to network with local business people.
