Join us for our Business Growth Lunch Event which will be held in Salford.

We're pleased to announce Chris Irwin, Managing Director of education software company EdStart, as our guest speaker.

EdStart was launched in 2007 by former rugby league player turned teacher Chris Irwin, with a mission to get more children active by making sport in schools as accessible as possible.

Chris developed ground-breaking software to provide teachers across the country with a cost effective and interactive way to deliver PE and sports provisions in their schools.

As well as sharing his experiences of growing the business over the last 10 years into a team of 30, Chris will also talk about the challenges he's faced setting up high quality EdStart franchises.

Joining us will be Becky Edwards, Business Customer Liaison Manager, Salford City Council and Joe Flanagan, Consultancy Manager, University of Salford to each talk about the business support available in Salford.

The event will be hosted by Richard Ousey, our Green Growth Manager who will provide an outline of the Hub’s wider business growth support offering*. It will also be an opportunity for you to network with an ever-growing community of Greater Manchester-based SMEs, partner organisations, speakers and members of the Business Growth Hub Team.

Don’t hesitate to book your place as our Business Growth lunch events are highly popular and the number of places is limited.
