The theme of the Hambleton Business Conference 2018 was:
The speakers were
- Barry Dodd CBE, Chairman of GSM Group and Lord Lieutenant for North Yorkshire
- Annabel Jelley, Head of Skills, York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Enterprise Partnership
- Martin McTague, National Policy Director FSB
- DS Newsham, Regional Cyber Crime Unit
- Sue Cross, Roseberry Training
As a business, what worries you in the early hours?
- Skill shortages?
- Employing the right people and keeping them?
- Cyber security and IT?
- All of these and more?
- enabled businesses to learn from one another, discuss challenging issues and leave with ideas and solutions.
- provided an opportunity to hear inspirational presentations from very successful businesses
It is also with great sadness, that our key note speaker Barry Dodd CBE, was killed a few weeks after he spoke at our event. At the time of Barry’s death Hambleton District Council put out a press release - Hambleton District Council Leader, Councillor Mark Robson, has paid tribute to Lord Lieutenant for North Yorkshire Barry Dodd CBE who tragically died on May 30.
“Barry was always very supportive of Hambleton and instrumental in facilitating a number of key projects in our district – the district in which he also lived,” he said.
“This is a tragic loss not just for us but for the whole of North Yorkshire – we will miss him greatly. Our thoughts are with his wife Frances.”
