Technological innovation and digital adoption present key growth opportunities for businesses in Greater Birmingham. The technology sector in the West Midlands comprises more than 65,000 employees. 41% of digital jobs in the tech sector locally are filled by under-35s, and 21% of roles are performed by BAME employees. This growing sector can provide unique insights on inclusivity, the upskilling of local talent and sustainability.
This event will review the latest results of the GBCC’s Quarterly Business Report and explore the role that technology currently has in the Greater Birmingham economy. It will also explore ideas around the future potential of technology to help the area innovate, diversify and grow.
The Quarterly Business Report offers an up-to-date snapshot of the performance of the Greater Birmingham business community. Our flagship economic publication, it is the most comprehensive regular report of its kind in the city-region. Underpinning our report is data gathered from quarterly surveys completed by businesses from across the Greater Birmingham area. This briefing will launch our QBR Report for Q2 of 2022.
Now a well-established feature in the local business calendar, these high-quality events attract a senior level audience of c.60- 80 for networking, discussion and intelligence sharing.
The Quarterly Business Report is sponsored by Birmingham City University.
