Secure your tickets for the Growing Gloucestershire Conference

The Growing Gloucestershire Conference is now just days away and it's not too late to ensure you are part of the action.

This year, Growing Gloucestershire is being staged at the monument to the business boom that Cheltenham enjoyed in the 18th and 19th century - the Pittville Pump Rooms.

The historic surroundings will be turned over to the business community on Tuesday, October 15 for a day of keynote speeches, breakout sessions and networking for like-minded business professionals.

Jonathan Nicholls, chairman of Gloucestershire Professionals, who are running the conference said that the packed programme of events made it an event not to be missed.

He said: It's a chance for business professionals across the county to learn something new that can apply to business.

"The conference also offers a chance to strengthen and renew connections and catch up with those people we haven't seen for a while.

But also, to build new connections with people where there is a mutual benefit."

This year, the theme of the Conference is Sustainability, Connectivity and Technology with a host of keynote speakers delivering speeches on the theme.

Top of the bill is Peter Cheese, the chief executive of the chief executive of the chartered institute of professional development, who will kick the conference off at 9.15am.

Mr Cheese will be followed by keynote speakers, Sophie Bennett from the Cranfield School of Management before breakout sessions and lunch is taken.

The third keynote will be delivered by Tarra Simmons from the Midcounties Cooperative before Rick Sturge of the Bloodhound Landspeed Project takes to the stage for the final speech.

In between the keynote speeches there are three seminar sessions covering a wide-range of subjects, alongside ample time for networking.

The conference opens for registration at 8.15am with the official close scheduled for 3.30pm.
