Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


3rd May – Port Talbot
The Leadership Conversation: Learning to Grow



The inaugural 2017 Port Talbot Enterpise Zone / ION Leadership programme had a huge impact on all involved with 70% of companies reporting a significant increase in turnover.

With funding recently announced for a second fully-funded Leadership & Business Growth Programme in Port Talbot, join us at this free to attend event to hear from successful business leaders and network with fellow business owners in the Port Talbot area.
