At the Chambers, we often hear about how our region is experiencing a “renaissance” and resurgence of growth and confidence. After a review of the latest GBCC Quarterly Business Report results, this event will assess Business Confidence in Birmingham and how businesses across the region are responding to uncertainty caused by national political and economic trends.
Now a well-established feature in the local business calendar, these high quality events attract a senior level audience of c.50 for networking, discussion and intelligence sharing.
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 event will launch our QBR Report for Q1.
