Advent backs #CWRocks

Advent Communications is the latest company to back the Chamber’s fresh, new business expo.

#CWRocks is taking place at the Ricoh Arena on Friday, March 9, and as well as including the opportunity to exhibit and network, there will be a chance to listen to and learn from a range of experts.

Advent Communications, which is based at Electric Wharf, and has been raising the profile of the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce for well over a decade, is sponsoring the event.

The company’s Managing Director, Adam Dent, will also be facilitating the four sessions in the #CWRocks Learning Labs programme, which is being sponsored by WCG Apprenticeships, that will be running throughout the day.

The Learning Labs will hear from a triumphant David Burbidge, the Chairman of the Coventry City of Culture Trust, who will explain the benefits of the UK City of Culture 2021 title and how businesses can get involved.

That will be followed by a panel discussion on Future Proofing Your Business and growing in 2018.

The Chamber’s hugely influential Brexit Club will be holding a session that looks at the latest developments on the UK exit from the EU and where businesses stand in the One Year On…One Year To Go discussion.

The final element of Learning Labs has seen the Chamber partner with the Digital Garage, delivered by Google, which is a digital skills training platform designed to assist companies in growing their business, career and confidence, online.

A Google digital expert will deliver the session to teach firms what is needed to gain a competitive advantage in the ever-changing digital landscape.

Adam said:

“Advent has been working with the as part of the Chamber team for many years and have helped it maintain and grow its position as the voice of business across the area. CW Rocks looks set to be another highly successful event and we are very much looking forward to the whole day.

“I am looking forward to hosting the Learning Labs and we are proud to be sponsoring the event in our 20th anniversary year.”
