Interview with Nigel Tipple, Chief Executive of OxLep

Nigel Tipple, Chief Executive of Oxfordshire LEP, talks to B4’s Richard Rosser about how OxLEP has, and continues to, support companies across the county, as well as highlighting key themes that the county’s businesses should engage with.

Following a year-long transformation to a ‘digital business model, Nigel was talking at OxLEP’s new offices on Harwell Campus, one of the world’s most prominent science and technology locations. Nigel explained how OxLEP has supported a huge number of businesses during COVID and Brexit and how OxLEP’s events schedule is designed to help businesses during this critical time, with new support programmes in place and a number of existing programmes that can provide ongoing support for the business community both during and after the Coronavirus pandemic.

‘Resetting’ the county’s economic future has never been more important and Nigel highlights a number of key strategies and plans which will determine how Oxfordshire – and the wider region – will grow and develop over the next few decades.
