How can good leadership drive regional and national growth? 

Are you interested in building successful economic regions and nations and levelling up the UK? Join us to shape our Thriving Regions and Nations work by gaining and sharing insight on how leadership is critical for creating and leading successful clusters and unlocking growth, in association with Tortoise Media.

Strong leadership is critical to the success of clusters and the role of business as local leaders of place influencing regional economic policy, use of devolved powers and generating the right balance of public sector ‘pull’ and private sector ‘push’.

This event will focus on:  

  • The characteristics needed for effective place leadership across businesses, including balancing collaboration versus competition
  • How businesses can understand the stakeholders within a place and bring alignment to drive growth and cluster development
  • What ‘good leadership’ needs to look like in a cluster
  • How businesses can better engage with local and regional economic policy, including devolution, to get the right outcomes to drive cluster development

This event is invite-only and will be a maximum of 1.5 hours, including time for networking. Tortoise Media will be facilitating this session and there will be a write up of the discussion, as well as film and audio used to create to resources for the Clusters Playbook, which will be built up as we undertake the roadshows.

What is a Think In?

A ThinkIn is not a panel discussion but a forum for civilised disagreement, designed to reach a better informed opinion based on the experience and expertise of everyone in the room. Together, we’ll aim to answer questions like: What is a cluster? What role do they play in the levelling up agenda? And how can businesses and policy makers work together to make them a success?
