One week to go until businesses to gather for North Wales conference

Next week, businesses from across North Wales will be gathering in Wrexham Glyndwr University for the third annual FSB North Wales Small Business Conference.

The free event, hosted by BBC News presenter Sian Lloyd and held in the Catrin Finch Centre in the university on Wednesday 18th July and will focus on a number of issues affecting smaller businesses in Wales.

“My business journey” will highlight inspiring stories of how business owners started up and overcame challenges and built their businesses. Delegates will hear from Mario Kreft from Pendine Park, Frankie Hobro from Anglesey Sea Zoo and Alan Cooper of Blue Fox Technology, who has recently been working on a major contract in Guinea, mapping the country for the first time since the Second World War.

The second part of the day will focus on supporting young people into work. FSB are launching a report on Generation Z and how this new generation of entrepreneurs will need to be supported in order to build the businesses of the future. There will also be a presentation from the Young Enterprise team from Pengwern College, on how the YE programme helped build their skills and confidence.  Finally, there will be the F1 Team Drive from Llangefni High School, who will shortly be competing in the world finals in Singapore.

FSB’s UK National Chairman, Mike Cherry and FSB activist and chair of the Welsh Government Female Entrepreneurship Board, Helen Walbey, will also highlight business issues and campaigns, and why we should encourage more women to take on leading roles in business.

The conference looks set to be a fascinating insight into various business issues affecting firms today. Limited places are still remaining, for more information contact northwales@fsb.org.uk  or telephone 01745 362492
