11:30, Thursday, 15 March 2018
You are invited to attend our Networking HUB taking place at Basepoint Tewkesbury on Thursday 15th March 2018 at 11:30. The event will be hosted by Centre Manager, Claire Vagges and will feature a talk by Professor Lindsey McEwen, Centre for Floods, Communities and Resilience, University of the West of England, Bristol. Small businesses are critical for the functioning of the UK economy and disproportionately affected by floods. This talk shares research on motivators and barriers for small business adaptation to flood risk. It shares SESAME’s practical guidance for SME business continuity (http://sesame.uk.com) and introduces SESAME’s e-learning tool (www. floodresilientbusiness.co.uk) developed working with small businesses in Tewkesbury to promote longer-term business resilience. We are now keen to secure feedback on this e-tool from other small businesses in the wider region.
The talk will be followed by a complimentary light buffet lunch and plenty of opportunity to network with other attendees. Basepoint also provides a business card prize draw. This is a bookable event and places are limited. To reserve your space please call Claire or Emma on 01684 854444.
