Join us for the next 'Helping your business grow' breakfast event which will be held on Thursday 13 October at MediaCityUK, Salford.
This month we are delighted to welcome Salford's newly elected City Mayor Paul Dennett to our event. Paul served as local councillor in Langworthy before he became the second directly-elected City Mayor on 6 May earlier this year. We look forward to hearing Paul's take on the future for business growth in Salford.
We will also hear from Alan Purvis, Managing Director, Mettler Toledo Safeline, who were recent winners of the Business of the Year Award at the 2016 Salford Business Awards. This session will offer a unique insight into one of Greater Manchester's most successful manufacturers.
Richard Jeffery, Director of the Business Growth Hub will also be on hand to talk about the latest Hub developments, and the University of Salford will be speaking about how businesses can engage with the University.
Our breakfast events are a great opportunity to understand how the Business Growth Hub can support your business, whether it is a growing business, a start-up or merely a great idea.*
There is also a chance to engage and network with the growing community of SMEs and partner organisations that work in your region.
Please be aware that while we welcome bookings from all companies, priority will be given to businesses that the Business Growth Hub are fully funded to support
