Your post Covid-19 route to business recovery
We are delighted to be working with Barclays on a series of webinars which offer advice to small business start ups and which promote growth within the region. This new series, which began on the 1st June, will look at how to make the most of new technology and navigate a post-Covid-19 landscape.
The webinar programme is part of our Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), a network of SMEs that the School of Management has built over the last ten years. Our support of the KTN is part of our continued commitment to the city, the economy and quality of life in the local community. We are engaging with 10,000 SMEs to conduct research and build programmes aimed at identifying and responding to key issues faced by those in business.
Zahir Irani Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic, Innovation and Quality), from the University of Bradford, said:
"We are pleased that Barclays is able to support our established KTN network that plays a significant role in contributing to thought leadership and providing a platform for businesses and entrepreneurs in the Bradford and broader region to learn and collaborate with leading academics and practitioners".
These sessions are just the start of a series of different webinar events. Other sessions will focus on:
- How AI and machine learning can improve your business
- Why businesses which promote a ‘confidence mindset’ among employees have better staff retention
- How Covid-19 has affected employment rights in the UK's gig economy.
Our Barclays colleagues from the Bradford and West Yorkshire teams are proud to be supporting the Knowledge Transfer Network events. Through our relationship with the University of Bradford and the School of Management, we are delighted to help our local economy to grow sustainably, while nurturing the next generation of entrepreneurs Mike Gorman, Market Development Manager for Barclays
