Business Leaders Discuss youth Unemployment

DCCI Food for thought

Published at 9:06am 2nd January 2015.

Businesses in the county have been given food for thought about issues like youth employment after a top-level lunch at Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Members at the DCCI's Business Partners heard from the Executive Director for Commercial Services from the British Chambers of Commerce.

David Riches also spoke about how local businesses could improve their exports and transport links too.

He also praised DCCI for its achievements over the past year and urged members to tell the BCC about issues affecting their businesses when he spoke after the lunch.
Ian Girling, DCCI chief executive, said: "David was an engaging and lively speaker who touched on many subjects of interest to our Business Partners.
"He triggered an absorbing debate about the value of apprenticeships and degrees, skills sets and gaps, training and the need to ensure young people are ready to enter the workplace.
"We were pleased that he accepted our offer to attend and we look forward to continue to hold such high-calibre events for the business community across Dorset."

Some 40 directors and managers from DCCI's Business Partners attended the lunch at the Highcliff Marriott Hotel in Bournemouth.
