Flintshire’s in Business
Flintshire County Council’s flagship business event has a new look – Flintshire
in Business was launched at a Business Innovation Breakfast held recently.
The Mersey Dee Alliance meeting was the perfect venue to introduce the new
programme of events for 2017 – changing from a week of events, to a programme
of events scheduled throughout the year.
Included in the line-up are events covering social media and online presence,
finance, business growth and opportunities for promoting local opportunities to
school and college students.
The ever popular Flintshire Business Awards will still take place at Soughton
Hall on 20 October.
Flintshire County Council Chief Officer for Community and Enterprise, Clare
“Flintshire Business Week has grown from strength to strength during the past
10 years and has welcomed over 23,000 delegates during that time. We felt that
this was now an opportunity to develop the programme and introduce events
throughout the year to encourage even more businesses to take part.”
President of Flintshire in Business, Lord Barry Jones, said:
“This is a magnificent initiative which will only further promote the brilliant
economy of North East Wales. The marvellous thing is that there is a cross
border connection of great importance and the County, with membership of the
Mersey Dee Alliance, is showing considerable wisdom. We are the most effective
manufacturing location in Britain and the only cross border economy in Britain
– our manufacturing capability is staggering.”
