Bank sem­i­nars to give firms a cut­ting edge

Belfast Telegraph - Business Telegraph - - News - BY STAFF RE­PORTER

BANK of Ire­land UK has launched a new part­ner­ship with the Cen­tre for Com­pet­i­tive­ness to help firms im­prove their per­for­mance.

The bank and the cen­tre — a not-for-profit busi­ness im­prove­ment or­gan­i­sa­tion — will hold sem­i­nars to give com­pa­nies ad­vice and in­for­ma­tion on en­hanc­ing their com­pet­i­tive­ness.

Busi­nesses will be urged to look be­yond Brexit and fo­cus on strate­gies such as in­no­va­tion, digi­ti­sa­tion and the adop­tion of spe­cific le­gal ap­proaches to en­sure they can main­tain a com­pet­i­tive edge.

The an­nounce­ment came as Bank of Ire­land UK pre­pares for En­ter­prise Week, which runs from Fri­day, with the theme ‘help­ing busi­nesses to thrive’.

Gavin Kennedy, head of busi­ness bank­ing at Bank of Ire­land UK, said the sem­i­nars were “prac­ti­cal and timely”.
