H&W events get a new life

Young people in Hereford and Worcester wil get the chance to attend another networking event in the New Year, as the local chamber of commerce takes over the longstanding Apprentices in Business series of events.

The events began their life in 2013 and have since gained traction among employers, training providers and young people in the region.

Chamber chief executive Mike Ashton said: “The Chamber believes apprenticeships are a vital way to enhance both the local economy and the younger generation and are excited to take on this fantastic project to support young professionals across Herefordshire and Worcestershire. AiB is a free event which takes place on the last Wednesday of every other month to inspire young professionals to network with other apprentices and local businesses. Each event will have a relevant theme and speaker to motivate and develop individuals in their careers.”

The first event organised by the Chamber will take place at Worcestershire County Cricket Club on Wednesday January 25. To book a free place, contact AiB@hwchamber.co.uk.
