skill, distortion and contortion!"

Policy Session - Solving the Talent Equation

With thousands of vacancies across the UK, East Midlands and Derbyshire, the shortage of talent is a very real challenge for organisations of all shapes and sizes.  With Engineering, IT and Digital economies currently worst affected, the problems will soon be felt across all sectors due to the highest levels of employment in living memory.

This session will offer you insights, help and positive solutions to the Talent Equation.

Bringing together thought leaders from across the region, we are going to be discussing the problems and providing insights and practical advice on what you can do within your business to attract, retain, hire and grow. 

If together we can find a solution to The Talent Equation we can look forward to thriving people and a thriving place.

Sir John Timpson CBE is the chairman and owner of Timpson, which has over 2000 UK outlets specialising in shoe repairs, key cutting and engraving, as well as dry cleaning and photo processing.

John Timpson's philosophy is  "If you treat people well, it is blindingly obvious that they will do a good job."

The business has won countless awards, and has been in the top 10 of The Sunday Times '100 best companies to work for' every time it has entered. The company has a policy of employing ex-prisoners and runs pre-release  training in several prisons.

John and his wife Alex had three children, adopted two more and fostered another 90 and he was knighted in the 2017 Birthday Honours for services to business and fostering.

Copies of John's book will be available to purchase at the event (Cash transactions only).

Bondholder Breakfast: Mazars

mazaars.jpg

Marketing Derby Bondholder Mazars, in conjunction with Bondholder Connect Derby, is delighted to invite fellow Bondholders to a breakfast event focusing on Research and Development (R&D) tax reliefs.

R&D tax credits are a valuable government tax relief that rewards UK companies for investing in innovation. Companies that spend money developing new products, processes or services are eligible for a cash payout or Corporation Tax reduction.

Mazars, one of Europe's largest accounting firms, with 300 offices worldwide, believes that many businesses actually have activities and expenditure that qualifies for the relief and encourages all Bondholders to come along and see if they are eligible.

Following an arrival breakfast, the experts from Mazars will walk Bondholders through the rules which are far more generous than most businesses perceive and will explain which sectors can benefit.

There will be ample opportunity to ask any questions during the morning.

Email lindsey.hatfield@marketingderby.co.uk to book your place.

Date: Tuesday 22nd May
