    In an ever-changing world, collaboration, innovation and the ability to adapt are increasingly the key to business success and sustainability.

    At the West Somerset Business Conference, organised by West Somerset Council, champions of business, skills and community regeneration will showcase successes and discuss how other businesses can adopt these approaches to take advantage of local, national and global opportunities.

    As well as discussing fresh approaches to doing business, delegates will hear how grass-roots community regeneration is helping support the economy of the area, and join the debate on how to drive up skills for local employment.

    Council Leader, Cllr Anthony Trollope-Bellew and economic development Lead member Cllr Karen Mills, will introduce the day and highlight what is being done to build opportunities in West Somerset.

    Chris Langdon, from Somerset Chamber, will highlight the Hinkley Supply Chain to demonstrate what can be achieved in winning contracts through collaboration.

    Harry Singer, from Singer Instruments, will speak on new project management approaches while experts in digital technology and marketing will share their experience.

    Q&A sessions with keynote speakers will be followed by a networking lunch, and opportunities to speak one-to one with business support organisations.

    Cllr Karen Mills, said: “The conference will explore how change, such as that in digital technology and approaches to management, can be effectively utilised by small businesses. It will also discuss how community regeneration is helping build opportunity within the District with local organisations who are embracing this change.”

    The conference takes place at St Audries Park, West Quantoxhead, on Wednesday November 16 from 9am-2pm.  Booking is essential and places cost £15 (inc VAT).
