Support event for Lichfield District businesses
Local businesses are invited to secure their free place on a webinar that will set out support and development opportunities.
Presented by Greater Birmingham and Solihull Growth Hub and Lichfield District Council, the virtual Lichfield Business Support event is taking place on Wednesday 3 November from 8.30am to 10am.
The free event is aimed at businesses based in Lichfield District that want to find out more about available support and future growth opportunities.
The webinar will be introduced by Councillor Iain Eadie, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member responsible for local Economic Development. He said:
"We want to help businesses thrive now that the economy is growing again. There is funding and support on offer, some of which we want to get into businesses’ hands before March 2022, and some that will flow over the coming years from the council itself. There is help on offer to take on new staff and upskill existing ones.
“I would encourage any business to sign up for the webinar to find out what is on offer to support you, as we try to help our high streets, our tourism and hospitality sectors and importantly our wider economy to succeed in the months and years ahead.”
The interactive event will also feature information about business support on offer from the GBSLEP Growth Hub, and employment and skills support offered by the GBSLEP Skills Hub. It will end with a question and answer session.
Ian McLaughlan, Director of Greater Birmingham and Solihull Growth Hub, said:
“This is a great opportunity for Lichfield District businesses to be updated on a range of resources and initiatives that will help to support, promote, and develop their businesses as we continue to emerge from the pandemic post national lockdown.”
