HUNDREDS of delegates will be attending Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) seventh annual conference later this week.

The LEP is holding the conference this Friday, December 1, but only limited spaces are available.

More than 450 delegates have already registered to attend the half-day conference taking place from 8.30am to 1.30pm at the Chateau Impney in Droitwich.

The conference is being hosted by the BBC Midlands Today’s main presenter, Mary Rhodes, who will be joined by keynote speaker and technology expert Dave Coplin.

Other high profile speakers include Marcus Burton – non-executive director at Yamazaki Mazak, Keith Robson, chief operating officer at University of Surrey, and the three previous winners of the Worcestershire Apprenticeship Awards.

Mark Stansfeld, chairman of Worcestershire LEP, said: “I am looking forward to meeting with businesses and partners to celebrate another hugely successful year for the local community and to look ahead to the county’s future with positivity and enthusiasm.

“We have recently seen that Worcestershire is leading the way in terms of growing workforce productivity and growing higher level workforce skills and we have many exciting projects to showcase to attendees including digital connectivity, skills and business creativity, all of which will help to benefit all parts of the Worcestershire community.

“We have already received over 450 registrations and, with a limited number of spaces remaining, I would urge all interested parties to register as soon as possible.”
