By Anita Jaynes on 10 August, 2019

The Swindon & Wiltshire Business Growth Summit is a well-established annual event considered not to be missed by influencers, decision makers and leaders from across our region. This year it will be held at Cineworld, Regent Circus, Swindon on Thursday 3rd October 2019. 

The theme for 2019 is ‘Growth from Resilience’ and speakers include WHSmith’s CEO Stephen Clarke (read our exclusive interview with Steve here).

BBC Wiltshire’s Graham Rogers will be MC for the event as part of BBC Wiltshire’s 30th birthday celebrations, and Ben Prater’s Breakfast Show will be broadcast live from the Summit.

Delegates also attended from local and regional government bodies, education, training providers and not-for-profit organisations. 83% of delegates rated their satisfaction with the conference as ‘High’.

Here is what some of the delegates said about the 2018 event.
