Boosting business with Cheshire East

 

Traders are being offered the chance to learn how to boost business during the economic recovery.

Two procurement training workshops are being hosted in Macclesfield and Sandbach later this month.

They are designed to help businesses gain a better understanding of how to tender for work with Cheshire East Council and other public sector organisations.

The events – at Macclesfield Town Hall, on January 20, and Sandbach Enterprise Centre, on January 25 – are being co-hosted with Melanie Bryan of WhyNotChange, a company which offers leadership and management training.

Councillor Jamie Macrae, Cabinet member with responsibility for prosperity, said: “These two events have been organised in response to feedback from local businesses and as part of the Economic Recovery Task Group.

“The Council is holding a series of procurement events to help local businesses through the economic recovery and to learn more about tendering for public sector contracts.

“They focus on how to ensure a business is ‘tender ready’ and to understand the processes and what is involved in putting a tender together. 

“I would urge businesses to get one of these dates in their diaries and get them booked as soon as possible, as they are extremely useful.”

To book a place, businesses should contact Jacqueline Wilson, business engagement co-ordinator, on 01270 685911 or email: jacqueline.wilson@cheshireeast.gov.uk
