Two Weston-super-Mare heavyweights have teamed up to launch a new speaker series that will bring leading business figures to the town.
Business Leader Magazine – which is part of the Ascot Group and employ 70 people from its HQ at Worle Parkway – and Weston College have rolled out the NextGen speaker series in order to bring high-profile experts to the town and create a new type of event.
The series will start on Thursday June 7 from 8am until 10am and will be held at the Winter Gardens.
A representative from Google’s Digital Garage will be the first speaker in the series.
Dave Crew, Business Development Director, comments: “We are delighted to be partnering with Business Leader Magazine to bring a series of high profile speakers to North Somerset.
“With Google Digital Garage being part of our inaugural event – and an exciting line-up to come – I am looking forward to creating a buzz for business in a region. Weston College continues to build a strong relationship with leading businesses across the region and this is our way of deepening those ties; and creating a platform that share knowledge and inspires.”
Oli Ballard from Business Leader elaborates: “There are some excellent networking and business events in the town but historically, what you would consider big ticket speakers have gravitated towards Bristol. We wanted to create an event that was a little different and very aspirational and high-energy. Weston-super-Mare and North Somerset can’t operate in isolation, so the event is also looking to bring in business leaders from outside to attend the events.”
