Four exciting initiatives launched to stimulate business success

Our next Guest Speaker is Caron Kendall, Business Engagement and Marketing Officer for Central Bedfordshire Council. Caron is also involved with business investment & marketing and economic growth & regeneration.

Caron will give a brief overview of her responsibilities before talking in some detail about four Council initiatives:

• Business Timebank: A “bank” of mainly local professional service providers who are prepared to offer consultation, mentoring, training or coaching sessions on a range of business related areas such as financial planning, sales and marketing, cash flow forecasting, property and human resources.

• The Soft Landing Service (TimeBank Plus): Packages together highly attractive incentives and information. As with the TimeBank , this service will be provided at no cost to the end user. The service is targeted at companies that are looking at setting up or relocating to Central Bedfordshire and high growth businesses.

• Pilot 10: This involves 10 local companies with potential for high growth taking part in Central Bedfordshire’s High Growth programme. The idea is that these businesses will help create sustainable job growth in the area.

• “Lets talk business” Newsfeed: Businesses sign up to recieve Central Bedfordshire’s business news which keeps them in touch with the latest business opportunities on topics such as financing and funding opportunities, contracts and tenders, information on free seminars, workshops and opportunities for one to one advice, updates on key infrastructure, networking events and business news.
