Employment Minister at Tees Valley Business Summit
It’s been another busy month for Recognition, including the firm providing PR support for Tees Valley Unlimited’s inaugural Tees Valley Business Summit.
We also arranged for Employment Minister Chris Grayling to give the keynote speech at the high profile event, which attracted hundreds of local businesses.
As a result, the event was well covered in the regional media including newspapers, business websites and magazines and broadcast.
Mr Grayling talked about the importance of private sector business growth to an area’s economic wellbeing.
He also spoke about helping long-term unemployed people find work, including the provision of work experience and work placements, strides being made to simplify business regulations, such as health and safety, and the significance of apprenticeships.
The Summit also featured 50 exhibitors, as well as ten workshops, including one delivered on PR campaigns by Recognition partner Jamie Collis, and 16 one-to-one appointments with business advisers.
