LEICESTER BUSINESS FESTIVAL BROCHURE NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE
Ahead of this year’s events, The Leicester Business Festival (LBF) 2020 digital brochure has now been released. Packed full of festival news and events, it highlights the extensive range of support available to businesses across Leicester and Leicestershire.
Headline partnered by De Montfort University (DMU), the LBF, starting on 2 November, is set to play an important part in helping to re-energise and revive the local business community. The bumper brochure, which is available on the LBF website, reveals more than 100 different business events over the fortnight, with nearly 40 offering business support in a variety of different ways.
There is help for businesses looking to identify what type of insurance they need; what to expect from an accountancy service; getting access to finance and grants, demystifying business contracts; how to turn ideas into reality and what to look for to avoid website hacks.
Several events aim to support businesses through the pandemic, such as the impact on opportunities for growth; managing change in uncertain times; adapting employee engagement in a pandemic and implications on corporate governance. The Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) will also be sharing a preview of the region’s economic recovery plan.
All events in the Festival are put on by independent companies and Leicestershire’s main business support groups, East Midlands Chamber, the Business Gateway and FSB are all heavily involved, from running events through to supporting at an organisational level.
Business Festival events are free and are live on the LBF website www.leicesterbusinessfestival.com as well as in the brochure. Tickets must be reserved in advance and can be booked on-line right up until the day before each event.
