Sheffield City Region Growth Hub Conference

A half day conference to provide an update on the activities of the Sheffield City Growth Hub so far and to explore some of the support offers available to businesses. 

WHAT THE CLIENT WANTED / THE ASK

Sheffield City Region Growth Hub provide a central point for business advice and support across the region with the aim of helping businesses to grow. They came to us to run a half day event to provide an update on their activities and an overview of their plans for the future. The event needed to take place in a venue easily accessible from the wider region and the format included a larger plenary session with 6 breakouts, which would run simultaneously, networking opportunity and an interactive element to the day.

HOW WE ACHIEVED THIS / THE OUTCOME

The event took place in a venue called The Source, which is ideally located just off the motorway with ample parking and has both a tram stop and train station within walking distance. Delegates came together to attend both an opening and closing plenary session, but were then free to choose an additional 2 breakout sessions based on their objectives/interests. The opening session included a polling system, which collated responses from the audience in real time and we also had a live twitter wall displayed throughout the day. We had a total of 90 delegates attend on the day and received positive feedback from both attendees and the client.

“Working with the team at Freshly Squeezed was like a breath of fresh air. Nothing was too much trouble and it was great knowing that whenever we had a question or possible issue – the team were there to deal with it, leaving us headache free to enjoy our event as we should.”
