Join Connected Places Catapult on Tuesday 29 June as we look at how small businesses can harness COVID Recovery Trends and rebalance the supply chain. From SMEs to corporates, all businesses have been impacted by these global disruptions and as we emerge towards recovery, it is important to take the time to re-assess for resilience.
Attendees will hear from experts Richard Miller (Associate Director, Connected Places Catapult) and Dr Daniela Paddeu (Senior Research Fellow, University of the West of England Bristol) who will share their insights and research through this interactive session. In addition learning about harnessing post-COVID recovery trends and implementing sustainable solutions in the transport sector, attendees will get the opportunity to implement their learnings in an interactive workshop with the speakers and fellow SMEs.
