An exclusive invitation-only club for top bosses has been established by Sheffield’s two universities to spark new collaborations.
The Managing Director’s Club is targeting ‘leading region business figures’ with a view to strengthening links between business and academia.
The launch event at Sheffield Hallam included a speech by Prof Roy Sandbach, chair of the Innovation Board for the North East Local Enterprise Partnership.
Michael Parden, managing director or B Braun Sterilog Ltd said: “I have been really impressed with tonight’s launch event. I have made some great contacts with other businesses and academics from both universities.”
