On behalf of Mr Sheibani (Chair of Deeside Business Forum) and the newly appointed Board of Directors we wish to thank all of those who attended our Flintshire Business Week event on Friday September 30th at Coleg Cambria.

Mr Rob Turner, Associate Director for Grant Thorton gave a fascinating presentation entitled, “Making Growth Happen”. He revealed several data points and arguments surrounding economic growth with one of his key arguments that growth is a scaling problem rather than a start-up or a survival problem.
