Sign up for Collaborate Cornwall


The first annual conference organised by Partner to Succeed and YTKO takes place in Falmouth later this month.

Collaborate Cornwall will be held at Tremough campus on Friday September 24. It will showcase successful business collaborations and feature a host of inspirational speakers, as well as unveil findings from the first ever collaboration market research carried out during the summer.


Collaborate Cornwall is designed to highlight the importance of collaboration on every level, from small scale, one-off local projects, to mass-market international business opportunities. People attending can discover firsthand the many practical and financial benefits of companies working together in collaboration.

The conference has commissioned speakers from across the UK to present practical and pragmatic advice on how and why collaboration works well, particularly in this challenging economic and political climate.

Those presenting will include television’s longest-serving business and economics editor, Michael Wilson and worldwide adventurer, yachtsman Pete Goss.

“The event looks to the future, too, showing how even the smallest firm can benefit from collaboration”

Collaborate Cornwall will also offer a timely opportunity for Cornish bosses to hear from Cornwall Council’s chief executive, Kevin Lavery and the South West RDA’s head of business development, Stephen Bohane, about the latest local and regional plans affecting business in Cornwall.

Peter White, managing director of business development company YTKO, said: “Collaborate Cornwall marks the first year of the Partner to Succeed programme in Cornwall. We’re delighted to showcase the wide and diverse business collaborations that Cornish businesses have embarked upon over the past twelve months. The event looks to the future, too, showing how even the smallest firm can benefit from collaboration, and grab national and international business opportunities.

“If you’re an aspiring Cornish business, I’d encourage you to sign up on the Partner to Succeed website and come along to the event, which is free to attend. There’s everything to gain.”
