Russell Hughes-Pickering, Corporate Lead Officer for Economy and Regeneration, says:

“One of the key priorities for Ceredigion’s Economic Strategy is to see those who wish to stay and develop a career in Ceredigion to realise there are opportunities to do so. We want to create an entrepreneurial focused culture for the county. Working with other agencies these events will present an opportunity for you to discuss your ideas and find out about the support available. You will have experts and local businesses on hand to answer any questions you may have.”
