Registration & refreshments
Welcome, Martin Hirst, Barclays Business Manager
Cyber Crime, Gareth Godard, Barclays Digital Eagle
We have seen huge advancements in technology over the last decade and the internet has completely transformed the way we live our lives and do business. However as we become increasingly connected through devices and technology, it can leave us all more exposed to fraud, scams and other online threats.
Gareth will provide you with information to help you identify and manage the risks that could affect you and your business.
Q&A on cyber crime
Energy efficiency, Claire Scott, Environmental Business Advisor
Government research indicates that SMEs are missing out on savings of up to 25% on their energy bill – just from simple low or no cost measures. The Business Growth Hub has launched a fully-funded support package to help Greater Manchester SMEs become more efficient, productive, and sustainable.
Claire will share top tips to cut energy use in your operations and will also explain how the Growth Hub’s expert advisors can help you optimise your energy usage, get ahead of the competition, and build resilience against rising energy prices.
