Solent IET Local Network – Business Links Forum

Solent IET Local Network – Business Links Forum

Thu 18th May 2017

About this event

The purpose of this information sharing and networking event is to explore whether businesses in our area can benefit from stronger links through the local IET network.  It is free to attend.
In addition to the networking element of this event, a range of topics will be introduced, for example how member products and services can indirectly benefit companies; the value of the IET’s agenda and events programmes; apprenticeships; and the merits of businesses building STEM links. It is also planned to hear from a select number of businesses about what they do and what they think.
From this the intention is to discuss what benefits might be derived from putting in place local IET network based initiatives.

Reasons to attend

Whether you run a business based locally or have technical responsibilities within one, we want to engage with you to explore potential benefits from stronger links through the IET Solent Local Network. In doing so there is an opportunity to get an up-to-date overview about what the IET does and how this can help businesses and member employees. Or maybe you are simply passionate about building stronger engineering and technology business success and have something to say – in any case we want to listen.
With the UK embarking on a new chapter in its politics and relationship with Europe, and with business and trade taking centre stage in many national and regional conversations, arguably this sort of debate is more important now than for at least a generation.
