Cumbria Business Owners and Leaders Forum

Welcome to Cumbria Business Owners and Leaders Forum

Join us in 2019 for our successful Cumbria's Business Owners and Leaders breakfast events held at Carlisle Racecourse.

If you're a Cumbrian business owner or leader then this is a great opportunity for you to hear from some top local guest speakers and discuss the pressing issues facing businesses.

Attracting and Retaining Talent through Inspiration, Recognition and Reward

Businesses across Cumbria continue to face a growing skills shortage. The reasons are varied, however there are strategies organisations can take to help combat this issue, from developing and ‘growing your own’ talent, through to creating an environment and culture that nurtures and rewards loyalty and success.

Join us as we hear from retention strategy and people engagement specialist Shelley Hayward from ‘People Keepers’ as she highlights some of the actions business owners can take to engage with upcoming ‘stars’. We’ll also look at how the apprenticeships and accredited degrees can be utilised to develop talent, with Carlisle College Principal, Grant Glendinning, providing an overview of the opportunities available.

Dominic Gaunt from Armstrong Watson Financial Planning and Wealth Management will also explore Tax Efficient Benefits, alongside Armstrong Watson Tax expert, Becky Bowness, who will offer an overview of employee share ownership and how financial benefits - outside of salary and bonus - can be used to incentivise employees.
