Swindon Business Leaders' Forum
Cautious optimism the concensus
Over sixty leaders from both major and smaller Swindon businesses took the opportunity to learn more about - and ask questions - on a raft of key issues today.
Speakers at the the Swindon Business Leaders' Forum, held at the Marriott Hotel, covered subjects such as economic outlook, training, forthcoming legal changes plus progress on the planned redevelopment of Swindon town centre, the latter which many see as the barometer of 'better times'.
'Cautious optimism' the general concensus, as our SWTV vox pop confirmed after we asked people in the key sectors of finance, construction, law and advertising their opinions.
