2015 has been the most successful year so far for our ‘Helping Your Business Grow’ breakfast events which feature guest speakers from growing Greater Manchester businesses and our partner organisations. The next in this series of breakfast events will be in Salford on 17th November featuring local creative talent from two of our clients in the area – The Bearded Fellows and Seven Bro7hers Brewery.
Joe Gosling - aka Bearded Joe – is director of The Bearded Fellows, a media production studio that ‘makes videos that people want to watch’. Joe will outline how, with the help of the Hub, the company has strengthened its business plan, especially around sales and marketing, and won a series of new, long-term contracts as a result.
Also speaking will be Keith McAvoy, one of seven siblings behind the Seven Bro7hers Brewery, a craft beer company offering ‘beers for people who think outside of the box.’ Keith will also talk about his work with the Hub and how the company has taken on the latest business thinking to help streamline their operations.
We will also hear from:
Hilary Centeleghe at Business Growth Hub, who will outline the different types of support available from the Hub.
Salford City Council will explain how they work closely with the Hub to support the growth plans of local businesses.
Bookings are now open and as ever we expect demand to be high, so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
