Reducing Costs & Carbon Footprint

The subject of how to grow and save money during the economic recovery was the subject at the latest business forum at Fast Forward last night.

The “Lean & Green Business Forum” included guest speaker and industry expert Mark O’Neill, who shared his thoughts on best practice and offered tips on practical ways to reduce business costs as well as carbon footprint.

Business courses & apprenticeships

The topic of efficiency and productivity benefits, as well as recruitment savings, when companies employ an apprentice was also discussed.
 
Daniel Knapp was on hand to talk about the benefits he has experienced two years into his own apprenticeship, which was arranged with Aligra Personnel through Fast Foward.
 
“The feedback from those who have attended has been excellent," commented Sinclair Brown, Business Services Manager at Fast Forward.
 
"We organise these free forums to help provide ideas and information for businesses looking to expand in the most efficient way."
