Lets Talk Real Growth Event Update

08 December 2017

On the 7th December Wakefield Council in Partnership with JLL successfully ran a growth event at Mount Park Wakefield. It was a unique venue with great networking and support from Works Better, Ad:Venture, Access 2 Innovation, Resource Efficiency program, Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund, the Manufacturing Growth Service, Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce.

The Event focused on companies that were looking at expanding in the district from a manufacturing background. The event saw over 50 delegates attend. A big thank you goes to Richard Harris from JLL and David Master MD of OE Electrics for their great presentations. It was a real pleasure to see the development of a home grown Wakefield company expand and grow in the district.

The economic development department are planning a further four events next year relating to expansion and growth with the support of partners in other logistic and distribution hubs around the district.

Thank you for everyone who supported and helped with this event. We look forward to seeing you at our next event.
