Future proofing Doncaster businesses

Anna Round

Local business people will be attending the Doncaster Business Insight Breakfast Briefing on Thursday, April 4, to discuss how Doncaster businesses are making themselves more robust, sustainable and productive during these changing economic, political and environmental times.

Anna Round from the IPPR North will talk about the think tank’s research work into the productivity of small and medium sized businesses in the North of England including how they are building resilience in these challenging times, responding to the productivity challenge, and interacting with business support and policy interventions such as the Industrial Strategy.

Anna said: “Small and medium-sized businesses make up more than 99 per cent of the north’s business population and employ 3.3 million people across the region. They’re a vital part of our economy and they need the right support to make sure they can fulfil their potential.”

Attendees will also hear the latest results of the Doncaster Business Insight Survey for Quarter 1 2019 to gain the latest snapshot of local business sentiment on hot topics including understanding apprenticeships, barriers to international trade, and creating local supply chains. Plus they will hear about the local trends in sales, employment, investment, business challenges and other economic factors.

This will be followed by a panel discussion between business leaders from high profile organisations including Michelle Wightman, Keebles, Ashley Granter, Natura, and Terry Parker, DCLT who who will further share how they are making their businesses sustainable in more ways than one.
