On Friday 13th November 2015 I attended the Worcestershire LEP Annual Conference along with 400+ other delegates. The annual conference aims to inform and engage business delegates including public and third sectors to hear first-hand about recent progress and priorities for the future of Worcestershire’s long term prosperity and the support available for local businesses to enable everyone to be a part of future growth. The proceedings were hosted by BBC Midlands Today presenter, Mary Rhodes, and featured respected guests from many specialist fields including keynote speaker, Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP, Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills. Although I felt a little ‘out of my league’ at the conference it again proved to be a great networking opportunity. The day, although not directly beneficial to my business; was fascinating, informative and even entertaining! As a ‘mind and body wake-up’ delegates were taught and took part in a New Zealand Hakka as you can see in the photos below.
