A shared agenda for economic growth: Norfolk and Suffolk Chambers of Commerce a manifesto for jobs and wealth creation

The challenging economic environment and Chamber network's response

Norfolk and Suffolk Chambers have been supportive of the Coalition government's determination to tackle the UK's debt burden. We have supported the cuts in public spending and have also been consistent in calling for policies and measures to stimulate and nurture economic growth. Our economy needs the private sector to be in a position to create wealth and job opportunities.

Our agenda

We will focus on what we believe are the five pillars supporting real and lasting economic growth:

• the economic development environment

• cutting unnecessary red tape

• creating a workforce with the skills to meet future demands

• providing a modern day infrastructure

• providing more energy from more sources

Working together, the voice of business in Norfolk and Suffolk believes that based on these five pillars, the economy can return to sustained growth and wealth creation.

EMBA Mini Masterclass: Leadership in an Uncertain World, University of Suffolk

01 Aug 2016

The next Executive MBA Mini Masterclass will be held on Monday 1 August, 6pm - 7:30pm, in the Boardroom, Waterfront Building Ipswich. Following on from the last EMBA Mini Masterclass the topic will be Leadership in an Uncertain World, lead by Dr Tom Vine, EMBA Course Leader.

Tom says, “We regularly hear calls for 'strong leadership', not least in times of uncertainty. But what of followership? We rarely ever stop to think what followership involves. In much the same way as politicians are having to acknowledge following the EU referendum an analytical focus on followership will better equip us as leaders. This short session explores the psychological dynamics between leadership and followership and in so doing suggests ways in which we can enhance organisational cohesiveness in times of economic uncertainty.”

If you are interested in attending, please could you email Laura Messer (l.messer@ucs.ac.uk) or telephone on 01473 338616.

MBA and Executive MBA - What's the difference?

25 Jul 2016

While a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) and an Executive Masters in Business Administration (EMBA) gravitate around the same arena of disciplines, there are key differences between the two which potential applicants should consider when thinking about which course is right for them.

Business professionals who take on a good MBA or EMBA programme will find their studies are dynamic, innovative and practical. The time of dry academic studentship in this area is thankfully over and the focus on relevant and useful skills acquisition for a successful career has transformed how business professionals learn and shape what they learn to work for them.
