BUSINESS leaders, academics, politicians and entrepreneurs will be gathering at Anglia Ruskin University’s Lord Ashcroft International Business School in Chelmsford next month April to take part in a conference designed to boost the region’s economic performance.

The Building Business Success conference, on Wednesday, April 24, will give 200 delegates a chance to share insight, strategy and practical advice on how to achieve business growth.

Speakers at the event will include Michelle Mone, one of the UK’s most successful female entrepreneurs and founder of international lingerie brand Ultimo.

The award-winning “Bra Queen” and co-owner of MJM International has built her success on determination, self-belief and hard work. She was voted Britain’s most powerful woman in business by Glamour magazine and received an OBE in 2010 in recognition of her services to UK business.

Other speakers include Lord Parry Mitchell, Opposition Spokesperson for Business, Innovation and Skills in the House of Lords and the former chairman of Syscap plc.

Alongside the presentations there will be a “Business Answers Your Questions” panel debate, chaired by BBC Essex presenter Dave Monk.

Companies will also hear how working in partnership with Anglia Ruskin can help drive sustainable business performance. Delegates will meet businesses already benefiting from Anglia Ruskin’s expertise as well as learn about the Government funding available to support businesses.
