More than 50 local businesses met at the Borderville Sports Centre on October 6 to discover how investing in their workforce could help them grow their business in the future.

A first-hand account, of the positive experiences from hiring an apprentice, from Cummins Generator Technologies was amongst the presentations delivered at the event, which attracted businesses from a wide range of industry sectors. Delegates also heard how RAF Wittering works with the local business community and how the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership is helping businesses to expand their skills base.

Richard Olsen, chairman of Stamford Chamber of Commerce, said: “It was inspiring to see so many local businesses coming together to learn from the experiences of others and explore how they too could grow their business by investing in their workforce.

“They all seized the opportunity to identify the challenges they face and develop a greater understanding of the work already being undertaken to help businesses meet those challenges.

“The thought-provoking workshops were particularly popular and I’m confident that we will see local businesses increasingly motivated to extend their internal skills base in the very near future.”
