The Northern Powerhouse has been a hopeful phrase thrown around for years, but what actually is it? Well, the Northern Powerhouse is a government initiative to help grow the North as a business powerhouse. The government are investing a whopping £3.4 billion to growth deals in the North, £13 billion on transport and £70 million to the northern powerhouse schools strategy, designed to harness and grow talent, skills and innovation in The North.
We are tackling the challenge of building the Northern Powerhouse from the ground up. It started with the idea to host a conference for Yorkshire based businesses, students and entrepreneurs alike to come together as part of a northern powerhouse collective. The event will host seminars talks and workshops from industry professionals with the opportunity to meet, network and grow both personally and professionally. We named this event DigitalU because it is an inspiring event about the future of businesses in the Digital age, with U in mind.
The task was getting together leading professionals from all over Yorkshire to share their skills and experiences of the digital business world. In doing so, we have brought together some of the most exciting and diverse business owners and professionals to discuss everything from cyber security, to digitally marketing your own business.
Leed’s premier events space Aspire will be the host for this exciting event, come along and help power the Northern Powerhouse!
Grow. Learn. Inspire.
