Kirklees Business Conference was a huge success

Kirklees Business Conference on 15th October at John Smith’s Stadium was a huge success, with hundreds and hundreds of delegates through the door from 08:30 the stadium was alive with the buzz of local business.

Social networks were awash with references to the conference with many suggesting it was the best turnout and conference ever attended in Kirklees.

Tweeters said “it brought together education and business, encouraging start ups like us!”, “the best Kirklees business Conference I’ve been to so far”, “enjoyed the State of the District session and met some good businesses exhibiting. It bodes well and brings confidence to Kirklees”, “fantastic conference with inspiring speakers, clinics and exhibition stands - a definite recommendation to businesses”, “fantastic listening to Fraser Doherty at Kirklees Business Conference, an inspirational and challenging seminar from this young SuperJam entrepreneur.”

The State of the District Panel concluded that action is needed to make manufacturing more attractive to young people – and help tackle a looming skills shortage across industry in Kirklees.

With Kirklees Business Week over for another year, the first ever Calderdale State of the District Summit will take place November 19th at Dean Clough Mills.

Taking place on Wednesday 19th November from 07.30 in partnership with Calderdale Counciland Dean Clough, we will bring together leaders from various sectors to debate the state of the Calderdale district and a Q&A session.
