The Times Britain’s Energy Coast Forum will be chaired by Times journalist Magnus Linklater, and will bring together business leaders and elected representatives from around the county.

It takes place on March 19th at Energus, Lillyhall, from 1.30pm - 5pm and will be followed by networking opportunities and wine and nibbles.

The event will showcase the fantastic opportunities and discuss the challenges that lie ahead as West Cumbria looks to build a robust and diverse economy for a low carbon future. It is supported by the Centre for Leadership Performance and Britain's Energy Coast, with Energus acting as a sponsor.

The theme of the event is understanding, creating and maximising opportunities for your business in West Cumbria, and developing your business culture, strategy and partnerships in order to achieve this.

Guest speaker Deirdre Bounds has been voted as one of the North's top 100 entrepreneurs, she is recognised as being in the top 50 influencers in the region.

A Centre for Leadership Performance spokesman said: “The Centre for Leadership Performance recognises how difficult it is for business men and women to take time away from their businesses to explore new ideas and ways of working.

"This free event offers a chance to use that time effectively to engage in an interesting and informative session about developing opportunities in West Cumbria. Delegates will hear about different perspectives and ways of thinking from an eminent speaker followed by a question and answer session where a panel of local experts will discuss the challenges ahead. We think they will find it an afternoon very well spent.”

Welcome coffee or tea available from 1pm, and places for this event are limited.
