Business Advisory Group

In these challenging times, it is ever more important that universities and businesses work together for growth and prosperity. Developing more impactful and productive relationships with local organisations, employers and businesses is vital.

The Business Advisory Group was created with this in mind, and has developed relationships with a variety of stakeholders from across the region. First set up in 2017, it strives to Work Better Together with business, putting collaboration opportunities into place to develop talent, innovation and knowledge capabilities in Hertfordshire.

Led by Hertfordshire Business School, the group meets regularly in a relaxed format, and aims to drive lively conversations on key business/university drivers around Talent, Innovation and Knowledge. Staff and student invitees are welcomed into the conversations.
