AN AWARD-WINNING business school is hosting a series of virtual breakfast events to help industry leaders face the challenges of Covid-19.

Cambria Business School – part of Coleg Cambria – is hosting six sessions with leading companies offering free guidance and support in response to the challenges of Covid-19.

The first covered employment law during the pandemic with Claire Brook and Michael Redston from Chester-based solicitors, Aaron & Partners.

The second takes place on Wednesday December 9 with mental health and wellbeing professional, Cheryl Parker.

Business Development Manager Amanda Holmes said the programme will bring together industries bi-monthly to share best practice and advice when they need it most.


“Given the ever-changing landscape in employment law – especially at the present time – we felt a virtual question and answer session would support our local businesses and partners and allow us to engage virtually,” she said.

“Over the coming months we will discuss numerous topics and welcome representatives from leading organisations, offering advice and sharing expertise.

“It is free and open to employers across the region, so we look forward to welcoming as many as possible to the next event. Now more than ever we need to come together.”

Cambria for Business is focused on collaboration and delivery of apprenticeships, short courses, professional development, access to funding and helping to develop and upskill the workforce of tomorrow.

Employer Engagement Officer Gari Thomas said: “Having Aaron & Partners as a key collaborator in the sessions will allow the college to impart specialist knowledge from a sector-leading business.

“Claire and the team are always so supportive of such events and we are extremely grateful for their input and time.”

Claire added: “I am very pleased to provide regular employment law webinars for Coleg Cambria’s partner employers covering the latest updates, particularly relevant in these times of increased uncertainty and rapid change. I look forward to the next event in December.”
