Colleagues from the BNP Paribas Personal Finance recruitment and brand teams took part in the first ever Solihull Business Expo on 27 March held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Solihull. They were also joined by Lawrence Dallaglio’s foundation of Dallaglio RugbyWorks with whom BNP Paribas Personal Finance has a three year partnership to help young people excluded from mainstream education remain in sustained education, training or employment.
BNP Paribas Personal Finance was one of over 25 exhibitors at the event, which was organised by the Solihull Business Improvement District (BID) to raise the profile and open connections to the wealth of businesses in the area. The event, opened to the public and businesses, celebrated the skills and services Solihull has to offer and also included LinkedIn demonstrations and several digital marketing and social media sessions run by Google.
The Director of Solihull BID, Melanie Palmer, said: ““The first ever Solihull Business Expo promises to be one of the networking highlights of 2019. We have such a wealth of talent and innovation on offer with our workshops and exhibitors and we are so thrilled to have so many great partners on board. It’s an event not to be missed.”
Jayne Licari, Brand and PR Manager at BNP Paribas Personal Finance, said: “The Solihull business community is thriving and it’s an exciting time for growth in our region. As a leading employer in Solihull we’re delighted to support the Solihull BID Business Expo. The event showcases the wide variety of businesses in Solihull and so many people who make Solihull a success. It’s also been a great opportunity to highlight some of the social issues in our region and how through our partnership with Dalalglio RugbyWorks employers in the region can make a positive impact by hosting a career taster day for some of the most vulnerable young people in our society.”
