March for Business returns for 2019
An annual month-long series of events to support businesses returns this March.
The Council's March for Business month returns with 25 events offering more than 100 hours of business support at venues across the county.
The business month, held throughout March, includes social media and retail skills training, networking events with the Federation of Small Businesses and the West Cheshire and North Wales Chamber of Commerce as well as events with Superfast Business Wales and the Development Bank of Wales.
A chance for food buyers to sample local food and drink produce to secure more contracts for local businesses will also be held, Blas Lleol - Meet the Producer is being organised in conjunction with the Clwydian Range Food & Drink Group and the Llangollen and Dee Valley Good Grub Club.
Other events include a session for businesses to make the most of the Urdd Eisteddford when it is held in Denbigh in 2020 as well as an event to help businesses who export.
Councillor Hugh Evans OBE, Leader of Denbighshire, said: “Our March for Business programme has been designed to meet the needs of businesses in the county.
“March for Business offers firms the chance to network and get expert advice around issues that matter to them.
“They can then take this knowledge forward and help grow their business, making a real difference to the county’s economy.
“There is also a focus on helping young people with the transition from education into business, something the Council believes will help the county’s young people develop the skills they need.
“The focus of March for Business was devised following feedback from our annual business survey and shows the Council is listening to businesses and offering them support to suit their needs.”
March for Business is part of the Council’s work on developing the local economy to make sure the county’s communities are resilient and residents have access to goods and services.
