James Newman, Chairman of the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Board Partnership, was interviewed on Sheffield Live’s Business Live show this morning.
The twenty minute interview, conducted by Paul Gregory in the Sheffield Live studios yesterday (14 November), covered the scope and scale of the Partnership. James is well-known across the City Region’s business community and his career spans more than 35 years, with senior roles in a large number of different industries including manufacturing, services and utilities.
The show also featured live studio guests Fiona Greaves and Johnny Reay talking about the Start Up Loans scheme – which encompasses business support too. Fiona ran through the practicalities of this scheme, which can offer loan finance – and vital mentoring / business support – to help entrepreneurs to launch businesses.
Today’s show came the the day after the announcement of a £5m cash injection to the City Region to help young people into jobs, and ahead of next week’s Global Entrepreneurship Week and Social Enterprise Day.
