Worcestershire LEP Chair, Mark Stansfeld: 20 March

First published in the Worcester News on 20.03.20

Last week we made the important decision to postpone the Worcestershire LEP Conference planned for the end of this month. This is in view of health concerns around bringing large groups of people together.

However, it is always important to focus on the good news in situations like this. Here at the Worcestershire LEP we plan to deliver our planned programme content and more to registered delegates and the wider Worcestershire business community through brand new video and audio content, available in a new on-demand format.

The team and I are thrilled to be able to offer some fantastic content we have lined up on our vision of a connected, creative, dynamic county for consumption at a time to suit you and your businesses situation.

We will share great news stories, business successes, and topical conversations together with what’s happening behind the scenes from the WLEP, key partners and business enablers. With this new content the team will be on-hand to answer any questions, provide information, advice and guidance on the content. There will also be an opportunity for members of the business community to be a part of future content sharing their advice or stories.

To stay updated and have access to this new content going forward, stay tuned to the Worcestershire LEP website where we will be sharing updates in the coming days. www.wlep.co.uk

This is a tough time for businesses, and I would also like to make businesses aware that there are a series of funds available to support them in a variety of ways during this difficult period.
