Enterprise Week 2018 – Review

28/09/2018

We are very pleased that the fifth Enterprise Week, held in September, brought together business leaders from prominent organisations in Jersey to discuss the future outlook, opportunities and challenges for the Island. The positive feedback we have received has emphasised how important it is to provide an opportunity for business leaders to talk about the difficulties they are facing and share their knowledge, experiences and insights. Most importantly, Enterprise Week is the one time in the business calendar when the leaders shaping our economic outlook across all our industry sectors, are in one room talking about the issues that are or will be a challenge to all of us.

In the 2018 keynote seminar the BBC’s Business Editor Simon Jack focused on the changes that have established themselves since the crash in 2008. He emphasised:

Following Simon’s address, a panel made up of

discussed the challenges of leading organisations in an increasingly complex business environment. All agreed that change is intensifying and unavoidable and so:

We organise Enterprise Week with the specific intention of stimulating our leaders to think about the future and their role in shaping their organisation for long-term success. By sharing knowledge and establishing new collaborations we hope to make a difference to the long-term success of organisations in all sectors of Jersey’s economy. This year’s Keynote event highlighted the key strategic challenges facing our economy and our aim is to find mechanisms to enable the business community to address these throughout the rest of this year and next.

Other events during the week included a cyber security breakfast event on how to identify & respond to current online security threats, a marketing event focused on what to spend your marketing budget on and a masterclass on delivering accelerated, sustained and profitable business growth.

We’d love to hear your own takeaway, light-bulb moment or favourite photo from the week so please feel free to share it with us by Email, Twitter or Facebook!
