Aimed at the regions professionals and business leaders, to gain insight and discuss the latest business issues with guest experts, they will offer an opportunity to network with like-minded people and develop valuable connections.

You are warmly invited to attend the free launch breakfast event on Wednesday 22nd February at The Colmore Building.

Esteemed academic Dr Andrew Glencross of Aston University will be delivering a presentation on the latest research and thinking on different Brexit scenarios and reflecting on his recent publication ‘Why the UK Voted for Brexit: David Cameron’s Great Miscalculation’.

The new event for the regions professional sector comes at a time of exceptional growth and recognition for both BPS Future sponsors.

Aston University announced this week it has one of the best business schools in the UK, according to new rankings results. The Eduniversal 2016 Business School Ranking Results placed Aston Business School 11th out of 154 business schools in the UK and 2nd in the Midlands. The University was placed 4th for having the most ‘significant international excellence’ out of all business schools in Western Europe. The rankings look at the top 1,000 business schools in the world based on accreditations, position in other major rankings, links internally and the opinion of other business school deans.

Multi-award winning West Midlands recruitment specialists, SimkissGuy Recruitment has grown both its Birmingham team and office space following its most successful year to date. The company, which expanded into Solihull last year, is also moving into larger premises in The Colmore Building following a 40% rise in new business. The move sees the four-year-old company triple in size to a 12 person office in the last 16 months.

The Birmingham team has been bolstered with the appointment of four permanent team members and two new interns. The team is set to continue its rapid expansion in February with the imminent arrival of two further interns. In addition to its continued business growth the company has also increased its charitable support, donating almost £6,500 to regional charities in 2016.

Rebecca Simkiss, joint managing director said: “2016 was a fantastic year for us and it was exciting to see the company take such huge steps forward. This was our second office move in as many years and we’re delighted to be building such a strong team. With a number of new business partnerships and events already on the horizon we’re looking forward to seeing where the next twelve months will take us.”

The event runs 8am to 9:30am and is completely free to attend.
