Be Ready is ready to launch!

We’re delighted to announce our launch event

What will you be doing on Friday 6th March 2020? Hopefully you will be joining the project team and 200 other business people at our launch event at Exeter Racecourse.

Thanks to the support of the South West Business Council, they are handing over a part of their spring conference to enable us to ‘show and tell’ what the Be Ready Employer Hub free-to-use services will be doing for Devon-based employers.

We are especially delighted to have as our Keynote Speaker Mike Adams, OBE – the CEO of Purple founder of Purple Tuesday and the Purple Pound. Plus the opportunity to hear from Mike Matthews, MD of Lineal Software Solutions Ltd – a north Devon based business that has embraced the benefits of employing people with a disability.

Our event concludes with the launch of the Great South West Prospectus with speakers Bill Martin (Editor of the Western Morning News) and David Ralph (CEO of the Heart of the South West LEP). Event timings:

  • 11am to 11.30am – arrival/refreshments/networking
  • 11.30am to 12.45pm – Be Ready Employer Hub service launch with overview provided by the project team plus guest speakers Mike Adams OBE (Founder and CEO of Purple and #PurpleTuesday) and Mike Matthews (MD of Lineal Software Solutions Ltd)
  • 12.45pm to 1.15pm – lunch and networking
  • 1.15pm to 2.00pm – Great South West Prospectus launch

Our launch event is free to attend but you will need to book your place via our Eventbrite booking page.

Come along and see how our free-to-use service can help your business understand and benefit from a more diverse workforce.
