A Shropshire business network is urging people to secure their tickets for an event later this month which will allow them to re-vision their business for the future.

Shropshire Business Partnership is hosting its ‘20:20 Business Vision’ event on Friday 27th February at Shrewsbury Town Football Club, where attendees will be encouraged to look ahead to the next five years and re-vision their business, as well as prepare for any challenges and opportunities.

energyGuest speakers include Jacqui Casey, Partnership Manager at the Marches LEP, Mark Pembleton, Business and Enterprise at Shropshire Council, Steve Williams from Impetus, and Andy Duxbury, Chief Executive at Aaron and Partners.

Paul Bennett, Chair of Shropshire Business Partnership, explained: “This is a great kick start to the series of breakfast events we’re running throughout 2015, and we’re really pleased to be welcoming such a great panel of speakers. Ultimately, we’re going to cover off what challenges, risks and opportunities that guests and their businesses could face in the next five years – giving them 20:20 vision and allowing them to prepare.”

The speakers are set to talk about changes across the social, economic and technology landscapes are impacting on the way many people do business, and how additional changes expected in the next five years are going to affect business owners even more. In addition, speakers will be talking about the growing need for businesses to embrace these changes, including increased demands from customers, new technologies, more complex working processes, as well as the ever growing need to gain an edge over competitors.

“We have Keith Winter of Dyke Yaxley and President of the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce, and Mandy Thornton MBE, Chair of the Shropshire Business Board, joining the forum alongside our guest speakers. Tickets to the breakfast event cost just £20 per person and guests will have the chance to network with 80 other professionals from across the region.
