Join the University of Exeter Business School for an afternoon of celebration, inspiration and learning

You are warmly invited to the Business School’s first Help to Grow alumni event, focused on supporting local SMEs to learn, connect and grow.

Join us on 19th June at Winslade Manor in Exeter and hear from a range of inspiring speakers:

  • Bella Collins, part of an all-female ocean rowing team and, until recently, Managing Director at Flexi-Hex in Cornwall, who will share her ocean rowing story and how it inspired her leadership at an innovative and sustainable packaging company
  • Laura Whyte from Whyfield accountancy firm in Cornwall on their experience over the past 12 months of piloting a 4 day week
  • Hear from inspiring Devon-based businesses Naturalmat and Two Drifters Distillery, on their efforts to create purpose-driven businesses
  • Learn more about the Help to Grow programme and SETsquared and connect with colleagues at the Business School

The event is free and open to businesses eligible for, and interested in, taking part in future Help to Grow cohorts, which will run in Plymouth from September and Exeter from January 2024.  Alumni who have completed their Help to Grow programmes are also invited and we’ll be celebrating their successes.
