Learn to give your business a lift at Expo event

Have your say

The inaugural Northumberland Expo is fast approaching and seats for the seminars are filling up.

Organisers describe the business networking event as ‘an amazing opportunity to listen to what the experts have to say on a range of subjects and to network with like-minded business contacts’.

Network Northumberland takes place on Thursday, October 30, at the White Swan Hotel, in Alnwick, with the aim of promoting the county as a thriving business community.

Julie Johnson, regional business expert, will be helping delegates to energise themselves in business, particularly pertinent as winter approaches.

Sara Raad, who many will know from the wonderful world of Twitter, is lifting the lid on some of the secrets of making Twitter work for businesses.

John King from enterprise agency NBSL (Northumberland Business Service Ltd) will be speaking about funding and training opportunities in the North East for both start-ups and growing businesses.

Other speakers include Andrew Swan, a regional debt solicitor with an unrivalled track record at reclaiming business debts, Beth Wyatt, who is speaking about business printing and ways to make you stand out from the crowd, and local butcher and successful businessman Mark Turnbull will be making your boat go faster. No, he’s not taking you to the river for a row, he’s talking about the methodology used by the British Olympic Team.

Delegates can also spend 90 minutes with local StartUP Britain Business Champion for Northumberland Paul Wakefield, who is going to be sharing his success stories and finding out exactly what’s holding companies back from achieving great things.

There will also be 24 trade stands exhibiting and two speed networking events but booking is essential.

The whole day is free to attend.
