Initial feedback from Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster (BECBC) workshop on 3rd August highlighted a strong level of commitment to the West Cumbria Economic Blueprint, with over 100 members attending the event.
The workshop, which was facilitated by Catherine Eve of Core Training and Development, included sessions focusing on the four key blueprint objectives: Optimising worldwide nuclear investment, business expansion and diversification, physical infrastructure support and growing the asset base.
Each of the sessions included animated discussion and written contributions from those present, and to ensure all members had a voice; members were also assured that feedback from those unable to attend will also be included in the overall output summary.
Barry Watkinson from Morgan Sindall led one of the groups, he said “This is a fantastic opportunity for businesses and it is in our own interest to make it happen. Catherine Eve is currently reviewing the huge amount of information we have collated and we have steps in place to marshal the data ready for analysis. This process is
likely to take a few weeks. We are looking to articulating the data using benefit mapping so any initiatives identified can be measured.”
Steve McClure, Vice Chairman of BECBC said “We were pleased to see so many people getting involved, voicing ideas and potential projects - the afternoon session indicated some exciting opportunities. The outputs from this first workshop mark the start of the start of the engagement process we are conducting in partnership with Britain’s Energy Coast and we look forward to feeding back as soon as the data is available.”
