Jim Stewart, chair of Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership said:

Dorset is at an exciting stage of economic development and change.  Our business conference provides the chance to debate local priorities, issues, asset capitalisation, productivity and outlook for the region.  We want to hear from businesses from across the county – large or small, new or established – about the key challenges and opportunities they face. We want to capture their views on shaping Dorset’s future and how we can improve our support to help grow the local economy.

“Our free conference is set to be a lively and stimulating business event – I encourage Dorset’s businesses to attend.”

Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership’s business conference: ‘Ambition & Vision’ takes place on Friday 13 April, 8–10.30am at Bournemouth University Talbot Campus.  Businesses and interested parties can register for Dorset LEP’s free business conference via dorsetlep.co.uk
