Around 70 senior executives attended a CBI lunch hosted by Staffordshire University at Birmingham’s Botanical Gardens.

The theme of Lucy’s talk was Universities and Business and how to engage SMEs more actively with Universities.

Deputy Vice Chancellor Paul Richards said:”This was a first class event and directly relevant to the audience of business leaders and those attending from Midlands Universities. We were delighted to join forces with the CBI in hosting the lunch and hope to make it an annual event.”
