North Notts Business Club hears from D2N2 Chairman about trend for greater teamwork

D2N2 Chairman Peter Richardson told a North Notts Business Connections’ (NNBC) audience today (May 27) how the economy is shifting towards a greater degree of collaboration between public and private sector.

Mr Richardson was a guest speaker at a business breakfast event this morning, organised by NNBC to help mark its seventh year of operation. The free membership business organisation, set-up to aid networking in Bassetlaw and North Nottinghamshire, held its Spring Conference breakfast event at Edwinstowe House.

The D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership – which covers Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire – brings together businesses, local authorities, and education providers in collaboration, to drive forward economic growth in all parts of its area. Its over-arching aim is to create 55,000 (private sector) jobs by 2023.

D2N2 recently published a Provider Charter, which actively encourages businesses, and training and skills providers, to pledge to work more closely together; to create learning programmes which teach the skills needed to fill ‘skills gaps’ identified by employers in their workforce.

The Local Enterprise Partnership was also a key sponsor of Venturefest East Midlands 2015, in April this year; an event which brought together innovators, business organisations and investors.

D2N2 is currently promoting its European Structural Investment Funds (ESIF) programme; which also encourages businesses to collaborate on projects around business competitiveness, skills and training, entrepreneurship and other areas, to access millions of pounds in funding.

Commenting on today’s event, D2N2 Chairman Peter Richardson said: “It was a real pleasure to discuss how the Local Enterprise Partnership can work on behalf of small businesses.” 

A North Notts Business Connections spokesperson said:“Local business clubs like this one are hugely important as communications points for micro businesses. It’s all about getting businesses together, to collaborate, do business and grow.””
