The Business Growth Lunch will be in Bury on Thursday 30 March
Our guest speaker Bill Jenkins, Managing Director of Jenkins Design Services will be sharing his 35 years’ experience of working within an ever changing business environment that has seen some truly unique challenges he has overcome. He will highlight why innovation is vital to any business with growth aspirations.
Bill has been responsible for the design and construction of many incredible projects, including the Coronation Street & Emmerdale Production Facilities, and managing the historic move of the nation’s favourite street brick-by-brick to its new home in MediaCityUK for ITV Plc.
Bill and his Team have also been appointed as Lead Consultant for the Rebuilding of EastEnders' Walford film lot for the BBC.
Our advisors will also be on hand to explain why now is a good time to trade abroad, what measures you can put in place to save on energy costs as well as provide an overview of all our fully-funded services*.
As always our Growth Lunches provide a great opportunity for you to network with an ever-growing community of Greater Manchester-based SMEs, partner organisations as well as all the speakers and members of the Business Growth Hub Team.
