Technology is focus of business event

Posted onPosted on 3rd Oct

Business leaders from Ashfield and Mansfield have come together for the latest business networking event aimed at using technology to support business growth.

The event, organised by Ashfield District Council was all about technology and how to best utilise technologies to support business growth and sustainability, and a case study on how the pandemic has help accelerate digital transformation.

The morning event featured three guest speakers – Shehzad Chaudhary, of the Department for International Trade (DIT); Jacqueline Taylor, of Sherwood Forest NHS Hospital Trust; and Paul Humphreys, head of scale up services at East Midlands Chamber of Commerce.

The networking events are designed for business leaders to come together, share knowledge, contacts, and resources to help support business growth and sustainability. The network is a place to share experiences, gain contacts, and learn new strategies for innovation.

Coun Mathew Relf, executive lead member for Corporate Transformation and Regeneration at the council, said: “In Ashfield we work hard to help local businesses access the support they need to help them grow. These events are a key part of this where businesses can not only hear from very knowledgeable speakers but also connect with each other to share experiences and boost local working.

“Our three guest speakers talked passionately about how technology can help businesses to grow and also gain access to new national and international customers.

“I encourage all local businesses to connect with our business support pages and get in contact with our excellent business support team to see what help and support is on offer to help you and your business to thrive.”

Ashfield District Council has recently developed a series of new webpages that can be found on the council’s website under ‘business support’. This has the resources to help new businesses and established organisations with ongoing news, information and support.
