London’s local business survey – West London Focus: Assessing the capital’s skills challenge

For a second year LCCI and London Councils commissioned leading polling company ComRes to undertake a survey of Greater London businesses. The survey focuses on recruitment, training, skills needs and apprenticeships.

This event will look at the results, zooming in on the specific issues for West London. The event will be an opportunity to:

  • Learn about the key issues from the 2018 survey and shape the priorities for the 2019 business survey;

  • Hear about London Councils' campaign to secure the funding capital’s public services need.
