This year’s conference will be hosted by author, BBC reporter and radio expert, Kate Russell, who has also been voted in the ‘Top 50 most influential women in UK IT’ for the past two years by Computer Weekly Magazine. Kate will be welcoming over 500 delegates to this year’s half-day event from 8.30am to 1:30pm on Friday November 30 2018 at the Chateau Impney, Droitwich.

Business leaders also have the opportunity to attend the business breakfast, sponsored by Bishop Fleming, which will be taking a look at the county’s investment successes and available support, from 7:30-8:30am on the morning of the conference.

Tiffany St James, Digital Transformation Strategist and keynote speaker for the WLEP18 Annual Conference, said: “I am delighted to accept the invitation to speak at the Worcestershire LEP Annual Conference 2018. It’s fantastic to hear about the good work they are undertaking in creating a connected, creative and dynamic economy and it is a huge opportunity to connect with 500 businesses and organisations who are making a difference in their community. I am looking forward to sharing how their business challenges can be addressed through the smart use of digital and social media.”

Kate Russell, author, TV and radio expert and host of the WLEP18 Annual Conference, said: “As a business owner it’s easy to feel like you’re on your own in a world that gets ever more complex and challenging. This event is a fantastic opportunity for local businesses to meet, network, get support and maybe even go on to collaborate to make the enterprise space in Worcestershire stronger than ever. I have known Tiffany St James for some years and am delighted she’s joining the line-up. She is a brilliant speaker and has a wealth of experience in this space. I’m sure all participants and delegates will take away a lot more from this event than just a bulging wallet full of business cards and I look forward to meeting everyone there”.

We look forward to hosting another highly-attended event for businesses that are looking to grow and make new contacts.
