Leveraging Swindon's Talent

Chamber invite businesses to attend their Corporate Insite Dinner 2014

Paul Briggs, Chief Executive, Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce Group, is inviting local businesses to take part in the Swindon Corporate Insight Dinner for 2014
 
The Pear Tree at Purton
Tuesday 01 July 2014

An expert panel will scrutinize leveraging the emerging talent for Swindon. The evening will be an elite collaboration between business, the Army, a key training provider and the UTC. It will follow a round table format.
 

Employers consistently tell the Chamber that there is a mismatch between what they are looking for in their staff, and the skills and attitude offered by candidates. The Prime Minister regularly refers to a global race, and the British Chambers of Commerce believes that in the 21st century, it is the countries with the most skilled workforces – both young and old – that will be the winners.
 
Panellists include:
 
Brigadier Piers Hankinson
Employer Engagement, Wessex Brigade of the Army
Recruitment of skilled ex-Army personnel - transferring to the non-military world
 
TeeJay Dowe
Founder, Back on Track Strategies
Development of the young workforce
  
Marc Bayley
Construction Director, Beard
Apprenticeships: why this works for them!
 
Paul Holmes
Director, UTC
A view of the emerging talent - crucial for business!
 
Jacqueline Grubb

New & exciting business models
 
Under discussion: ensuring that ‘employability’ skills are at the heart of schools and colleges; investing in quality careers education for all young people, including regular contact with employers; clear, universally understood qualifications for numeracy and foreign languages; and ensuring university courses are relevant to future job opportunities.
 
Lifelong recruitment of skilled workers will also be examined.
