INVITATION: Cumbria Voices: Aspiration and Excellence World class business in Cumbria, 15th July 6-7pm.
We would like to invite you to the first of a new series of Cumbria Voices events organised by the Community Foundation’s Cumbria Club, in partnership with Armstrong Watson.
Aspiration and Excellence: World class business in Cumbria which will take place online on Thursday 15 July from 6 to 7pm.
Cumbria may be best known for its stunning lakes and mountains, but it is also home to a number of world class businesses working across a number of sectors. We are delighted to bring together some of the leading figures from Cumbria’s business world to explore the themes of aspiration and excellence.
Join us online from the comfort of your own home or office to hear from:
- Martin Rayner: Director of Lakeland Ltd – Cumbria’s very own retail royalty supplying kitchen products that can be found in virtually every home in the UK.
- Matt Mellor: Managing Director of Createc – an intellectual property and technology business perhaps best known for developing technology to support efforts in containing the destroyed nuclear reactor at Fukushima.
- Phil Wild: CEO of James Cropper – makers of quality paper (including poppies for the Poppy Appeal) and also a leading-edge technology business operating in the aerospace and motor sectors.
- Jo Lappin: Chief Executive of Cumbria’s Local Enterprise Partnership.
We will also learn about the vital work of Oaklea Trust supporting people into employment. Sue Green: Director of the Oaklea Trust, speaking on behalf of Right2Work.
