Free event to inspire business growth in Peterborough

Monday 11 July 2016

Businesses in Peterborough will receive specialist advice on the funding and support available to facilitate business growth at a free event taking place in the city on Wednesday.

The free, interactive workshop, organised by Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce, has been designed to help local businesses understand the support that’s available to help develop a full-trained, motivated workforce. It will also provide advice on how to access specialist funding to support capital investment plus an update on forthcoming changes to the funding of apprentices, and specifically the introduction of an apprenticeship levy in 2017.

John Bridge OBE DL, Chief Executive of Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce, said:
“This thought-provoking workshop will provide a catalyst for business owners to consider their own business growth ambitions and identify steps they can take to achieve their short and long-term growth goals.

“Two local companies will also be on hand to inspire others by sharing their own growth successes.”

The event is being sponsored by the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and is supported by Peterborough Regional College.

Neil Darwin, Chief Executive of Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough LEP, said:
“Supporting the growth of our local businesses is an important part of the work we do here at the LEP. We understand that an appropriately trained and motivated workforce makes all the difference in business, which is why we are sponsoring this Grow Your Business event.

“Our Signpost 2 Grow team will be on hand during the event to help connect businesses to the help, support and funding they need to grow – from local training opportunities through to grant funding for new equipment. I would encourage as many businesses as possible to attend the event to find out how they can grow their business.”
