PROSPER MAGAZINE: AUTUMN 2019 | EDITOR'S WORD
WELCOME TO THE NEW PROSPER MAGAZINE
OUR INTERACTIVE, ONLINE MAGAZINE IS BIGGER, BETTER AND BOLDER!
Welcome to the very first edition of our new look Prosper magazine, the region’s longest-running business publication with a completely new look.
News, views, interviews, opinions and debate from across the Black Country and beyond its borders; a culmination of months of research, hard work and the incredible creative work of our publishing partner, Interactive Magazines.
We’ve been working behind the scenes to bring you more up to date news, commentary and insights on topics which matter to the business community, and now, with over 30 years of heritage, Prosper has relaunched with a contemporary new look and feel, its own interactive online magazine and reaches out in innovative and engaging ways with things that matter to business readers.
As Prosper goes to print the country teeters on the brink of Brexit, parliament has been suspended after its longest session since the Civil War and the party-political conference season is now upon us.
In light of the continued political turmoil and relentless uncertainty, businesses continue to cry out for clarity during these uncertain times; you can read the thoughts and opinions of the region’s business leaders, respected academics and the Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street, throughout this first edition.
Our first Prosper Profile features an interview with Dr Adam Marshall, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce, who tells us about the importance of linking top-level government with senior business leaders, how flexible working practices can help a company’s best asset, its people, and how he never shies away from the challenges the role brings.
Produced by the Black Country Chamber of Commerce, Prosper also features news from across the Chamber organisation, including the announcement of recent sponsorship links for key Chamber initiatives, news from across the membership and an array of articles from the many business sectors in and around the Black Country.
