In a break from tradition, the next Castle Point Business Forum is going virtual!  So please join us ‘virtually’ at our business forum on Tuesday 19th January 2021 at 2pm.  The Forum is aimed at helping local businesses look towards the future of business in 2021 and offer support for your business to survive and thrive.  As part of this we will also be covering the comprehensive range of support available to businesses during these unprecedented times. We have an interesting and informative line up of presenters including:

• The BEST Growth Hub and Back to Business Essex who will provide updates on the various business and financial support schemes that can benefit your business.

• USP College who are leading the way on the latest teaching and learning technologies, will be introducing their new Centre of Excellence for Digital Technologies and Immersive Learning.  There will also be information on Apprenticeships and the new Government KickStart scheme which aims to create new, fully subsidised jobs for young people across the country.

• James Wilkinson, Digital Skills Partnership Co-ordinator, South East Local Enterprise Partnership will be making a presentation about the Digital Skills Partnership, outlining offers from the likes of Digital Boost and Amazon (via their Small Business Accelerator program)

It is sure to be an interesting and worthwhile event.
