Burnley College Means Business. The Number One College in England* Announced as Patron of Lancashire Business Day
Celebrating the pioneering business of Lancashire – Burnley College is putting its skill, knowledge and experience into a day recognising and sharing success stories.
Lancashire Business Day 2022 takes place on Friday 25 November at the fabulous 1968 Lounge at Accrington Stanley Football Club and is proudly sponsored by Burnley College.
The prestigious event is organised by Lancashire Business View, the bi-monthly publication which brings together the news stories from the local business community, offering the most comprehensive, refreshing and well-connected guide to industry in the region.
It’s taking place in person for the first time in three years after the last two events were held online due to the pandemic.
Guests will enjoy a celebration of Lancashire’s business roots, share in its success stories and discuss its ambitions for the future.
There will be a drinks reception, a luxurious meal representing Lancashire’s finest food and drink, local entertainment as well as a vibrant and passionate roundtable debate featuring guest speakers.
This year’s round table will be filmed for attendees to use for their own marketing campaigns – alongside a suite of professional photographs captured throughout the day.
Director of Skills, Innovation and Employer Engagement at Burnley College, Neil Burrows, says it’s an honour to be sponsor this prestigious event:
In the world of education, having a strong connection to business is vital.
Without the skills, the knowledge and the experience of centuries of industry in Lancashire we would find it hard to offer the exceptional education we’re privileged to be able to deliver at Burnley College – across all of our A Level, Vocational, T Level, Apprenticeship and Degree-Level courses.
“Working hand-in-hand with the leaders of industry to explore new technologies, fill vital skills gaps and to share our experience to ensure success for everyone is a privilege we do not take lightly.
“Lancashire Business Day is the perfect opportunity for everyone to get together and celebrate how fruitful that relationship has been and how we can continue to grow and ensure we keep delivering successful outcomes for everyone long into the future.
“And what a venue! We’re so grateful to Accrington Stanley for hosting us. It’s going to be incredible.”
