UpRising helps celebrate the Vibrant Economy in Wales

April 6, 2018

On the 15th March Cardiff Senior Programme Manager Louise took part in a panel discussion at the launch of the Vibrant Economy Wales event, organised by Grant Thornton.

Grant Thornton are seeking to stimulate ideas and actions that can create a vibrant economy – one which realised the shared potential of companies, cities, people and communities across Wales. The Vibrant Economy Index sought a new way to measure the success of the economy. Not only considering prosperity, but also dynamism and opportunity; inclusion and equality; health, wellbeing and happiness; resilience and sustainability; and community, trust and belonging.

Also on the panel were Sacha Romanovitch, CEO Grant Thornton; Stuart Ropke, CEO Community Housing Cymru; Caroline Thompson, CEO Be The Spark; Huw Morgan, Non Exec Director of Huw Morgan Consulting; and Alun Jones Head of Social Investment Cymru at WCVA.

The event was a great opportunity to contact with new and old friends and spread the UpRising message further in Wales.
