We believe that through working together we can all achieve so much more.

UWIC has worked with more than 5000 companies and brought over 500 new products to the marketplace over the past ten years

That’s why we’re working with our extensive network of partner organisations to ensure our skills, knowledge and state-of-the-art facilities are deployed to help Wales to realise its full economic, social and cultural potential.

Currently working with us is Captain Phill Hall-Davis, the Chief Pilot at Veritair – a commercial helicopter operator and the first organisation to sign-up for UWIC’s ambitious ‘20 Twenty’ Leadership Programme.

Over the next decade the business environment will be particularly challenging and the Creative Leadership and Enterprise Centre (CLEC) at UWIC’s Cardiff School of Management is leading the £3.9m project to drive forward growth and productivity in more than 200 enterprises across South East Wales.

Commenting the programme, Captain Hall-Davies said: "As a small to medium sized enterprise we are not in the position to invest in our own management programme, yet we require top quality leadership skills to run the business successfully. The 20 Twenty Leadership programme will enable me to acquire the skills needed to boost our business partnership and, in turn, lead to offering more and better services for our customers."

Supported by the European Social Fund (ESF) through the Welsh Assembly Government, encourages  business leaders to adapt flexibly to change and to provide them with the skills to compete in an increasingly difficult trading environment.

At the launch of the 20 Twenty programme Ieuan Wyn Jones, Deputy First Minister and Minister for the Economy and Transport, said:

“The 20 Twenty Leadership programme will help generate a step change in the performance of companies, and contribute to improving prosperity across the region. This demonstrates how our effective use of European Structural funds is being invested to boost the Welsh economy.”
