Accounting for 99% of all UK businesses and contributing £2 trillion in annual turnover to the economy, SMEs are an indispensable element of British industry and must not be underestimated.
Our first Bondholder Breakfast of 2023 will excite and inspire, bringing together SME founders, owners, large business leaders and young talent to discuss the pivotal role of SMEs, entrepreneurship and innovation in the success of the Humber.
We will celebrate our region’s success stories, putting a spotlight on our impressive SMEs while discussing the hottest topics for existing and developing SMEs around starting up, sustaining, and scaling up small-to-medium businesses in today’s constantly evolving world.
It will showcase our region’s unique entrepreneurial landscape, offering opportunities and support to SMEs, both nationally and regionally. Exploring the critical challenges shared amongst our local enterprises such as workplace culture, sustainability and finance, the event will embrace the Humber as a hive of activity in which businesses of all sizes can thrive.
Now, more than ever, SMEs must make use of disruptive thinking to push limits and cut through the noise. It is necessary in everything from creating a working environment that is a great place to be, to futureproofing with technology and green innovation. With 668,000 employees in Yorkshire and the Humber now working to a hybrid schedule, a 26.2% increase, creating a positive culture, which encourages employees to ‘show up’, is a top priority for business leaders.
Our panel of speakers will explore these themes and share how innovation and adaptation, across all areas of business, can and does lead to success even during times of uncertainty. Inspiring case studies will promote now as a critical time, full of opportunity.
The Humber region is bursting with energy, expertise and innovation, with SMEs playing an essential role in this.
Now is the time to unite our small-to-medium and large businesses and celebrate the unique innovation and entrepreneurship our region has to offer.
