On Thursday 14th September, Cranfield School of Management is hosting its annual Venture Day

Smith and Williamson are long term sponsors of this particular day and, more generally, their business growth programme. For this event they are running two sessions in the afternoon (one after the other) on the topic of talent, titled "It’s the People, Stupid!". As your most important and valuable asset, your people need to be recognised and rewarded; supported and stretched; encouraged and enthused. So what can you do to ensure the best return in the short, medium, and long term? This lively and interactive panel session will offer practical insight into recruiting, retaining and developing talent to support your next phase of growth. Delivered by professional advisers and scale-up entrepreneurs, we will look at tips and tactics for getting the right people on the bus, retaining top talent and how culture eats strategy for breakfast. Sarah Hunt will be on the panel for these sessions.
