Bury St Edmunds - 28 July 2011
About the seminar
|Seminar suppoorted by:|
Local Enterprise Partnerships are under huge pressure to drive sustainable economic growth and realise the business and economic potential of the local community, but it would be hard to achieve these goals without sufficient engagement with the communities in which they are based. Engagement is vital in order to develop sustainable business models.
The Government is keen that these partnerships move forward quickly and establish their boards, of which business representatives are expected to form half. LEPs now face the challenge of extensive engagement with a broad range of groups before their start date next April.
This seminar will consider how those already involved in town centre economies should understand and approach LEP engagement. With a basis in understanding governance structure, the main focus will be on tourism, historic, and market town economies.
