Swindon and Wiltshire has seen a period of strong sustained growth by focusing on creating high skilled jobs in its core competencies in recent years – from pharmaceuticals and life sciences, to digital tech and sustainable engineering.
How will the area maximise these strengths in the coming months and years as the nation tackles its recovery from the Covid-19 outbreak and the economic stagnation it created?
Insider will bring together a range of prominent business leaders, key stakeholders and experts from the region for an interactive online question and answer-style audience debate to examine the area’s recovery phase and the challenges and opportunities ahead.
What will the big planning opportunities around infrastructure and how the right kind of landmark regeneration projects could raise the county’s aspirations in the coming years? How can the region best maximise the unique strengths of its specialist clusters and the great selling point of its particular geography – well-placed between the powerhouses of the M4 corridor but with easy access to stunning countryside and with an excellent standard of living.
There is a lot to discuss in what promises to be a fascinating debate, focusing on key goals and driving the region back on to the road to recovery.
We look forward to welcoming you on July 1st.
