Enterprise M3 Growth Hub to wave the green flag for connecting and collaborating at 'Let's Talk Growth'


'Let's Talk Growth' is specifically designed for businesses that serve high-growth companies in the Enterprise M3 area

Enterprise M3 Growth Hub is to host a special 'Let's Talk Growth' breakfast meeting at Mercedes World, Brooklands, Surrey, from 8:30am to 11:30am on Friday 7 October, for local companies and organisations that provide services to the local SME market to help them connect with policy makers and potential new clients.

Organised in association with BQ magazine, 'Let's Talk Growth' will be chaired by BBC News Home Editor Mark Easton, and feature keynote speeches by Emma Jones, Founder of Enterprise Nation, and Kathy Slack, Director of Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership, as well as Enterprise M3 Growth Hub's own Growth Champions.

Enterprise M3 Growth Hub is an expert advice and resource network that helps businesses achieve results quickly through a personal, tailored service focused on growth.

'Let's Talk Growth' is specifically designed for businesses that serve high-growth companies in the Enterprise M3 area. Example types of businesses are legal and accountancy firms, the banking community, through to community-based organisations such as chambers of commerce and universities.

"Our interest is connecting with these types of businesses and organisations in the Enterprise M3 area that provide services to high-growth businesses so they can add even more value for their clients," said Roya Croudace, Director of Enterprise M3 Growth Hub.

"We're looking to reach out to this audience for the first time through this event."

As an additional incentive to attend, early registrants will have the opportunity to be driven rather fast round Mercedes' test circuit.

Adding value for clients

In sectors such as space, aerospace, defence, 5G Telecoms, pharmaceuticals, IT, digital innovation, computer gaming and virtual reality, the Surrey and Hampshire economy is a significant success story due to the right conditions being in place locally. In place are globally competitive research facilities, high levels of innovation and a strong talent pool - plus the types of local networks that help facilitate productive exchange of knowledge and generation of ideas.

Enterprise M3 Growth Hub is looking to broaden its connections with businesses that sell services to other high-growth potential companies, and discuss how the Hub can assist in adding value for their clients, especially for navigating business the support on offer from the public sector.

"We'd like to help connect these businesses more effectively and profitably with clients that we've identified as showing high-growth potential", added Roya.

‘Spirit of Brooklands'

Mercedes-Benz World is located within the famous Brooklands circuit, the world's first purpose-built banked motor race circuit. The site includes the Spirit of Brooklands museum that celebrates the glory days of motoring and aviation, and Mercedes' AMG Performance Centre houses a display of Mercedes-AMG performance cars.

Mercedes-Benz World is just a few minutes from Junction 10 of the M25 on Brooklands Drive, Weybridge, Surrey, KT13 0SL.

'Let's Talk Growth' - Registration

"We're really excited to welcoming local business leaders and we're sure the opportunity to try out the Mercedes test circuit should raise the pulses for quite a few we know are coming", added Roya.

"There's opportunities for new synergies that we're in a unique position to provide. For instance, our inside knowledge and expertise of our ‘Growth Champions' can show the way and offer intelligence on connections and skills resources as well as client acquisition and retention."

"We therefore look forward to setting the scene for what we'll be doing to help high growth potential businesses in the Enterprise M3 region, and helping make new connections, at Mercedes World on Friday 7 October."

Limited places available so register today for 'Let's Talk Growth', from 8:30 to 11:30 including time for networking, on Friday 7 October 2016 at Mercedes World, Brooklands.
