Following the successful launch of the Staffordshire Story and new placemaking identity in November last year, this month we held our first Ambassadors event, sharing business success stories and key developments across the county to 180 businesses in Staffordshire. You can watch the event back in full, here.

A central aim of the Staffordshire placemaking work is supporting businesses located across the county, through promotion of business success stories at events, in the media and across digital channels; bring a variety of businesses together to foster collaboration and opportunities to work together, and help businesses shout about Staffordshire across the UK and internationally.

As part of this important work, Staffordshire County Council has funded and recruited a new Place Brand Manager to drive this forward. Louisa Grocott started in post this month, so please do reach out to her with any suggestions or questions on how you can get involved with the Staffordshire placemaking work, or become an Ambassador for the county.
