On Friday 19th June, Synapse Information CEO Brian Donnelly attended the Greater Birmingham and Solihull LEP annual conference at Birmingham Town Hall. The Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP) is a partnership of business, local authorities and universities come together to support private sector growth and job creation.

Brian was joined on the panel by David Hardman, CEO of Innovation Birmingham and Andy Street, CEO of John Lewis. Up for discussion was the development of Birmingham into a city able to compete with any in the world, as well as the wealth of opportunities and support provided for new businesses both by the city and by the Innovation Technology campus in particular. This is a topic particularly close to Brian’s heart as our office is based in the Innovation building and the support of David and the Innovation Birmingham team has been invaluable to our success.
