More about the Festival



Leicester Business Festival

Leicester Castle Business School is proud to be the Headline Partner of the Leicester Business Festival.

The Leicester Business Festival (LBF) offers an extensive and wide-ranging programme of more than 120+ impressive events each year over a two-week period, and is currently the region’s largest business event.

By business and for business, these events are hosted by the dynamic leaders of the business community and are programmed to showcase the developments and innovation coming out of the region.

Founded in 2014 by the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP), the core objective of the LBF is to place the region’s activities on a national and international platform in order to attract inward investment that will facilitate economic growth.

With a market reach of around 12.7m, LBF 2017 hosted 150+ events with c.12,500 visitors.

The benefits of our partnership and shared vision are outlined by Professor Dana Brown of Leicester Castle Business School:

"The LBF is something of which we were determined to be part of and we are proud to have been headline sponsors for 2016 and now headline partners for the next three years.

The festival’s key aims of promoting the region and supporting the drive for economic growth falls into perfect harmony with the university’s own strategies and initiatives."

Leicester Castle Business School

Set in the stunning Great Hall of Leicester Castle, Leicester Castle Business School (LCBS) has undergone a £4.2m transformation to meet the needs of 21st century business.

Under the leadership of Professor Dana Brown, the school goes beyond business as usual, offering a unique learning environment where students are encouraged to challenge convention and are given the opportunities and tools to think, create and inspire.

By committing to the Leicester Business Festival for the next three years, it demonstrates that The Leicester Castle Business School is very much part of, and a resource for, the city’s business community.

Our programmes are predicated on an understanding that to be successful in business today, it is essential to have deep knowledge of the business context and how it is changing and evolving in relation to political events and social changes in our time.

In highly competitive and changing global businesses, all employees need to embrace continual learning and to know how to use information wisely, to reach decisions, communicate, negotiate and work in team-based environments. Success in business in the 21st century requires creativity, cultural sensitivity and empathy, all of which we foster through unique educational experiences for undergraduates through to senior executives.
