Build a Dynamic Team: Develop Your People, Talent and Skills

About This Event

Are you looking to empower your staff, attract and maximise talent within your business? 

Designed to help women entrepreneurs unleash their full potential, our Breaking Barriers Series brings together industry experts and female leaders to help your business get inspired, break-through roadblocks and supercharge growth.

Finding people who have the required technical competencies and soft skills, plus the entrepreneurial, visionary and risk-tolerant traits to take your business to the next level is a key challenge facing many women-led businesses today - so how do you attract the best talent as an SME?


Why should you attend?

Join us as we share first-hand knowledge on bridging the gap between skills and talent to enable SMEs to leverage one of their most important assets, their people.

Newable's Breaking Barriers series, part of the Fuelling Ambition Programme, in partnership with Innovate UK EDGE and with support from JPMorgan Chase, have designed this event to help women entrepreneurs to develop an effective recruitment strategy and take away definitive strategies and tactics to help identify, attract and retain the talent you need.

As your business grows and model evolves, you will require a higher degree of adaptability from team members to deliver maximum sales, profits and company valuation. 

Discover how to build a cohesive and well structured team by empowering your staff and getting a solid grip on your recruitment strategy, enabling you to grow and leverage talent within your business.
