Come along, be inspired, catch up & re-focus on your business connections.

Our September event will focus on the Manchester business scene. We’ll hear plans for the region and how businesses could best work alongside the values of the council to enable the region to become stronger than ever. We’ll also hear how one North West business made a massive leap onto the Stock Market and isn’t looking back!
