Southend Business Partnership Briefing - 26th November

The next Southend Business Partnership briefing will be held "virtually" on Thursday 26th November from 8:30am – 10:15am. The theme will be “ South Essex – Still a place of opportunities and for optimism”.

Given the latest lockdown and its impact on the UK economy the briefing will be an opportunity to look forwards to the opportunities available within the South Essex area which will support recovery and growth. With this in mind we have the following speakers:

  • Getting Building Fund and Local Growth Fund Projects across South Essex - Ian Lewis, Executive Director, Opportunity South Essex

  • Thames Estuary Freeport - Perry Glading, Chair Opportunity South Essex and Thurrock Business Board

  • The Local Plan and associated opportunities - Ali Griffin, Chief Executive Southend on Sea Borough Council

  • Business Support across South Essex - Jon Birkett, Growth Hub Manager

  • Upskilling South Essex - Ian Lewis, Executive Director, Opportunity South Essex

We hope you are able to join us for this "circuit breaker of positivity" and to see how the opportunities exposed by the projects above could support your business through supply chain opportunities, increased construction investment and employment opportunities. As with all these events there will be the opportunity to ask questions to our panel.

The event will be held virtually but will be an interactive session with the opportunity to discuss how the opportunities could impact your business.
