A dedicated website has been set up and over 100 bookings already received.


Entitled ‘Driving Worcestershire Forward’, the proceedings will be chaired by TV Presenter and champion rally driver, Penny Mallory.  Also featured will be presentations by local carpet manufacturers, Brintons, and Holywell Malvern Spring Water and profiles of several other Worcestershire based organisations, including  Evesham Vale Growers and Worcestershire County Cricket Club.

WLEP will provide an update on achievements to date and inform the audience of progress towards its bid for funds from the Growth Fund, European Regional Development Fund and European Social Fund.

The conference will feature many opportunities for delegate interaction, including live text polls, a twitter feed (#drivingworcs) and the opportunity for businesses to ‘tweet up’  with on-line colleagues.

Gary Woodman, Executive Director at WLEP, says:  “This year’s event promises to be even bigger and better than last year’s.  We’ve got a great line-up of confirmed speakers and we’re sure that Worcestershire businesses will have a very interesting, informative – and enjoyable – morning.”

Please spread the word among your colleagues and business associates and for further information, visit the website or contact the LEP office.
