What are some of Worcestershire’s recent successes?

We’ve got lots going on, it’s the Young Enterprise finals this evening, where we have 9 teams that are coming together to go forward to the regional finals and then hopefully the national finals. We’ve had some really good news around the Queens Awards in terms of 3 companies in Worcestershire that have won – Thorlux Lighting, JMDA ltd and Seada Technology winning awards. A real highlight this month is the Worcestershire brand launch of the Worcestershire 1000 ambassadors that we are looking to recruit to promote the county.

There you can access lots of marketing material that you can use yourselves but also you’ll hear updates about events and news about how we are promoting Worcestershire as a great place to do business.”
