Barclays Driving Aspirations: The High Growth Ecosystem
November 17, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Barclays is proud to once again be sponsoring Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW).
In support of GEW 2015 which runs from 16 – 22 November, Barclays will be running a series of events around the country focused on the specific ‘gaps’ or challenges facing businesses as they seek to grow, as identified in Sherry Coutu CBE’s scale-up report.
The Barclays event in Birmingham will focus on the Skills gap. Skilled candidates are essential for rapidly scaling businesses. However, the skills gap is cited as scale-up business’ most significant challenge to growth. In ‘The Skills Crunch’, the Prince’s Trust found that 73 per cent of employers believe that skills shortages will lead to a significant skills crisis across the UK in the next three years. The panellists investigate how to challenge the skills gap.
Barclays would be delighted if you could join them for a discussion on the Skills gap and to hear how your region is dealing with the challenges in this space.
