Welcome to the 2012 Bucks Business Breakfast programme, continuing the success of this business-focused speaker event. We always aim to attract an audience containing a healthy mix of regular attendees, together with some new faces. There is ample opportunity for informal networking, before we enjoy a traditional “Full English” breakfast [or vegetarian alternative !] and then settle down to listen to our expert speaker.
Each month, we welcome a guest with specific expertise, to guide us through some of the many the challenges facing us in business today. As well as the learning opportunity contained in the presentation, you can exchange referrals or simply catch up with colleagues and associates in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
- Charles Brocklehurst, Major Projects & Property Executive, Wycombe District Council
- Sector Heads from UK Trade & Investment
- High Wycombe – A Business Location for the Future
Local Government can influence radical change in the economic landscape and bring huge benefits to the business community. Several high-value projects are planned for the area immediately around Handy Cross and its attractiveness as both a business and a transport hub are well-documented.
The business community has a key role to play in securing the economic future of High Wycombe – and the whole of the County of Buckinghamshire. The high-value investment projects planned for High Wycombe will help ensure the town and the wider area remains attractive and competitive as a leading business location.
You can also meet with Sector Heads from the premier national investment promotion organisation UK Trade & Investment, as they tour key business locations and centres of excellence across the whole country. Now we can showcase the strength of our business community, the fantastic capabilities of the local area and the County!
Our main speaker today is Charles Brocklehurst, whose current role at Wycombe District Council puts him right at the heart of these issues. The future prosperity of the district is at stake and the business community has a key role to play in securing the economic future of Wycombe and the whole County.
Charles’s presentation will bring us up-to-date with progress on the Cressex Gateway, Handy Cross and Hughenden Quarter Regeneration projects, as well as allowing the opportunity for questions, as Charles is also responsible for the Council’s property portfolio and its acquisitions and disposals programme.
The UKTI Sector Heads are touring the whole of the country, gaining first-hand knowledge of our capabilities at local level and promoting their findings to the world’s business community.
