Businesses from throughout the County Borough enjoyed a thought-provoking course on leadership skills at a special event organised by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Business Club.
More than 60 delegates attended the event at Llancaiach Fawr which was jointly organised by the Elevate Cymru project which is part of the Work Based Learning programme, funded by the European Social Fund, through the Welsh Government.
Martyn Rowling of Elevate Cymru explained how the project aims to build a Pan-Wales approach to the leadership and management of high level skills needs of micro, small and medium to large sized businesses.
They also offer a wide range of training for managers, including employment law, finance, change management, social media and customer service.
The event was also a perfect opportunity for business people to network with other successful firms in the Rhondda Cynon Taf area and to hear what the guest speaker had to say.
Cllr Paul Cannon, Council Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Safer Communities, said: “We are very proud of our Rhondda Cynon Taf Business Club and were delighted to welcome Martyn Rowling of the Elevate Cymru project.
“The Rhondda Cynon Taf Business Club is one of a number of initiatives the Council has developed to encourage entrepreneurial spirit and support local business, with the obvious aim of helping to grow the economy and create jobs.
“We are fully committed to playing our part in having the right environment for businesses.”
