Our Business Schools can provide the local and regional centres of excellence that not only develop leadership skills but connect and network businesses to research, provide support for key industries, drive innovation and upskill a generation of managers and business leaders to drive growth in the domestic and international economy.
This conference will look at the role Business Schools can play following the Heseltine Report, what they are doing to support business and what role they can play locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. In a global economy you still need a local starting point.
Key speakers include:
The Rt Hon. David Willetts MP, Minister for Universities and Science
The Rt Hon. The Lord Heseltine CH
Rt Hon Lord Young of Graffham, Adviser to the Prime Minister on small business and enterprise
Professor Richard Thorpe, Professor of Management Development and Pro Dean for Research and Innovation, Leeds University Business School.
