Brought to you by Barclays

As the world begins to open up and in-person events can be added to our calendars, we’re proud to be partnering with Barclays for a short in-person conference to provide a timely update on the key business sectors driving growth in the South West.

Ashton Gate plays host to this one-of-a-kind conference suited to business leaders, changemakers, investors and professionals.

Change, sustainability and talent will be amongst the subjects discussed and the aim of the event is to highlight the opportunities and challenges we all face, in an increasingly uncertain but connected world. Leading speakers in their respective fields will give short presentations to the audience with the opportunity to also ask them questions.

We’ll also seek to find out what difference can South West businesses make and how can they continue to create jobs, opportunities and stand tall in their communities?
