This conference provides an opportunity for a variety of local businesses to network and discuss the exciting things happening within the Borough and sponsoring the conference enabled the college to support the Chamber in continuing to connect local businesses.
Commenting on the Richmond Entrepreneurs Conference, Robin Ghurbhurun, CEO & Principal for Richmond upon Thames College, says that “it was an honour to be part of such a fantastic event for the second year running and to see so many people come together to celebrate the success of our Borough.”
He continues by saying “it was inspiring for both the staff and students in attendance to network with the many local businesses that continue to achieve so much” and feels “it is important to be part of the Chamber in order to assist the continued support for the local business community.”
A selection of students from RuTC attended the Richmond Entrepreneurs Conference to hear the inspiring stories from successful local entrepreneurs and find out about how current affairs are affecting their business. The students had the chance to attend seminars that discussed key business lessons and provided advice for their future careers.
A key topic of discussion at the conference was Apprenticeships and the importance of their role in shaping the future for both young people and businesses in the Richmond Borough.
Eileen O’Gara, Head of Employer Engagement at Richmond upon Thames College, believes that “Apprenticeships provide a number of benefits for both the employer and Apprentice” and feels it “was a great opportunity to meet with local businesses and discuss how we can help them with their search for an Apprentice in the future.”
Richmond upon Thames College is proud to play its part in supporting the Chamber and will continue to build relationships with its local business community.
