The 2017-2018 'Ignite Programme' has now come to an end but plans are under way for the new 2018-2019 programme. 

Each year the Economic Development team at Signal Centre finds out whta the current needs and requirements of local businesses are through one-to-one meetings, focus groups and online surveys and plans the programme around this.  This programme reflects what you told us.  Our aim is to deliver a Programme that is of value to you and that will ultimately help you achieve business growth, improvement and success!  Please take the survey for our 2018-2019 Programme here.

The next programme will as usual consist of Know How Modules, Masterclasses, Connect@Signal, 1-1 mentoring sessions and Mini programme workshops and will be launched in September 2018.  Our programmes also provides the opportunity to network with business people from across the Borough, share ideas, raise profiles and develop business opportunities.
