Henley Business School at the University of Reading is proud to stage ‘Supporting SMEs Businesses to Grow’ Forum on Tuesday 24th June 2014 starting at 17:30 and finishing at 21.30.

The Forum will provide insights into how and what the School is doing/can do to support SMEs in the Thames Valley region to grow their business through collaboration.

The Forum will feature an opening speech from Richard Greenhalgh, Chairman of the National Centre for Universities and Business (established by the Department of Business Innovation and Skills and funded by four funding councils and TSB to strengthen the ties between universities and businesses to drive economic growth) which will be followed by a panel with David Gillham (Director of Research & Enterprise Development at the University of Reading), representatives from the Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (TVBLEP) and leaders of SMEs including Dan Daly (CEO and Founder of Lein Applied Diagnostics), Paul Lindley (CEO and Founder of Ella’s Kitchen) and Karen Ovenden (Co-Founder and Operations Director, HireServe) who have benefited by collaborating with Henley Business School and the University of Reading.

This event will help answer the questions that you’ve always wanted answered and importantly get you connected and networking with participants and peers.
