As part of the Business Engagement Centre’s Business Growth Forum, we’ll be launching a series of drop-in support clinics giving businesses the opportunity to tap into the expertise of specialists in their field on specific business issues. From finance, international trade, employment law and business intelligence, as well as how to link up with the University of Huddersfield for academic and technical support and student placement opportunities.
The first drop-in support clinic is being held on Wednesday 30 March 2017, from 2pm-4pm at the Business Engagement Centre in the 3M BIC.
