Join the Lancashire Forum Creative Extra Business Growth Programme

Join the Lancashire Forum Creative Extra Business Growth Programme that starts on 27 February 2018.

This is a new business, leadership and innovation development programme from University of Central Lancashire, designed specifically for Lancashire-based Creative and Digital SMEs. It’s not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ programme – it’s been designed from the outset with the needs of creative and digital SMEs at its core.

Delivered by an expert team, the programme brings together industry-specific expertise from across the university together with specialists from industry.

We work with delegates to co-design parts of the programme, use innovative facilitation tools like Lego Serious Play and creative collaborative events like ‘Technology Hacks’ to work on topics identified by participants. Alongside our expertise, experienced facilitation and technology, a supportive network of like-minded peers underpins the programme. This means you will work with other business leaders at every step.

What previous participants say about the Lancashire Forum

“Being part of the Lancashire Forum Creative has boosted my confidence, empowered me to address the issues I’m currently facing in my business and work with others to create solutions. We’ve learned from guest speakers and factory tours, and also from each other’s personal experiences and, collectively, it’s become evident that there’s a wealth of experience and support between the group.” Andy Neale, Founder, Global Amigos
