Pitmans launches business future-proofing campaign
The unprecedented growth of Reading and the opportunities and limitations presented by the development projects in the town will be debated at four roundtable discussions hosted by a top law firm.
Pitmans is holding four events in October and November as part of its “Reading. Future proof for business?” campaign and is inviting C-suite level executives of local businesses and clients to take part and discuss what doing business in Reading means to them.
The roundtables will cover four main topic areas:
• Achieving sustainable growth – Thursday, October 11, 8.30am-10.15am, The Forbury Hotel, Reading
• Attracting and retaining talent – Tuesday, October 16, 8.30am-10.15am, Thames Valley Science Park, Reading
• Investing in commercial property – Tuesday, November 13, 4pm-6pm, The Forbury Hotel, Reading
• Developing infrastructure – Tuesday, November 20, 8.30am-10.15am, Thames Valley Science Park, Reading
The aim is to debate how the developments are working for ambitious businesses, entrepreneurs and investors. All the events, hosted in conjunction with the CBI, will feature guest speakers and will be chaired by key Pitmans representatives.
The findings from each of the roundtables will form a business report to be launched in March 2019.
John Hutchinson, Managing Partner at Pitmans, says: “With the future arrival of Crossrail, high tech offices and business parks being built and the new Western Rail to Heathrow in the pipeline, Reading is set to transform at an unprecedented rate. We understand the opportunities and limitations presented by the various developments taking place which is why we want to help by launching this dynamic and enterprising campaign.
“These events and the final report next year will provide vital insight for businesses in terms of future-proofing their plans for the next decade and beyond.”
