Welcome to Shaping the Future of Portsmouth

 Shaping the Future of Portsmouth is an affiliation of business people in the city, who have come together to offer their time and expertise to help support the ambitions and aspirations of Portsmouth City Council.

These aspirations and ambitions are laid out in the PCC regeneration strategy, and the Business Growth and Skills Plan.

The Shaping members have established a number of work streams, each of whom have selected areas where they think they can take action to help to improve the city for the benefit of all.

We Need You

The Shaping initiative would not exist without the time and expertise gifted by the business community. The workstreams and sub groups are always looking for more business people to join them, and there are two in particular who urgently need new members.

The new Skills work stream has the important job of supporting and helping to realise the challenges set in the new Business Development and Skills Plan. Information about the workstream and the Plan is on our website.

The other new workstream, Future Generations, would really benefit from some young managers joining their ranks, to support their exciting but challenging tasks. Again all details are on the website.

Please feel free to give me a call if you would like to talk through how you might be able to help us.  I can be contacted by calling 07968 590714. Or email   This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
