Future-proof your business with Bangor University – skill-share sessions
On 8th March Bangor University held its first skill-share session, at the new science park, M-Sparc in Gaerwen, Ynys Môn.
Despite the heavy snow staff and participants attended the breakfast event, designed to encourage companies to think strategically about their business, to share ideas, and secure their business’ future.
During the event, Chris Walker facilitated a practical session: ‘kick-starting innovative ideas for future-proofing yourbusiness’. In this highly interactive session participants explored the skills, tools and knowledge required to develop innovative and long-term sustainable solutions for businesses to thrive and survive.
Chris is highly experienced with supporting and mentoring businesses; from SMEs to global companies, both nationally and internationally. Chris is part of the core NWBA team – delivering and mentoring on the SBA module, as well as on some Phase 2 modules.
