Being held at Harrogate College on Monday, July 11, the three expert speakers are Steve Bolton, Amrit Choda and Danny Wild.

Steve, is a lead consultant for Harrogate Borough Council delivering on the Welcome Back Fund, which involves working collaboratively with SME’s and partner organisations across North Yorkshire.

Amrit is an Aspire2lead job coach and mentor. A2L is a project part-funded by the European Social Fund which aims to provide free support to women to boost their skills and confidence, and to help them achieve their potential and contribute to the growth of businesses in the York and North Yorkshire Local Enterprise Area (LEP).

Danny Wild is Principal of our host venue, Harrogate College, which in September is to launch a new student-workers programme.

This has been made in direct response to feedback the College has received from local businesses. It will benefit both the employers, by fulfilling their staffing needs, and the College students, who will accrue invaluable work experience.

Harrogate District Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive, David Simister, said: “For Harrogate businesses seeking information about what financial grants, practical support and staff training they can access, then our July meeting is a must attend event.

“And I’m delighted to say this meeting is open to non-members too. The aim of our meetings is to educate and inform, and this is what July’s speakers will do.”
