About the event

RTC North are excited to bring this event to Durham Businesses.

This transformative workshop, delivered by Phil Atkinson Managing Director and Nigel Freeman Operations Director of BTS Facades & Fabrications, is designed to guide you on a journey of embracing change as a catalyst for success and growth in your business.

In today's rapidly evolving business landscape, adaptability is not just a skill – it's a strategic imperative. This workshop is your compass for navigating change and turning it into a powerful driver for success.

BTS have set standards in world-class manufacturing excellence, automation, innovation, renowned quality, carbon neutrality and its accelerated net zero ambitions. They have done this successfully by embracing change and by focusing on the culture within the business. Their PEOPLE were a key driver of their outstanding achievements.

The last two years of developing and implementing over 20 initiatives across the business is truly an amazing journey to hear about.

This workshop is open to all business sectors to attend as many of the initiatives embraced by BTS can be implemented across any business.

There is a level of power from hearing from peers that cannot be underestimated, hearing from those who have lived through the challenges and addressed concerns.

Prepare to be inspired!
