Join us for an exciting opportunity to expand your professional network and build lasting connections with other business leaders in your local community. Our upcoming in-person networking event is the perfect opportunity to meet new people, learn about other businesses in the area, and share your own expertise and ideas.

At this event, you'll have the chance to connect with other professionals across a variety of industries, all while enjoying a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Whether you're looking to find new clients, explore partnership opportunities, or simply meet like-minded individuals, this event is one not to miss.

In addition to the valuable networking opportunities, we'll also have teas and coffees, savoury and sweet nibbles, plus engaging speakers to offer valuable business advise and support.

Our June speaker is Debbie Porter from Destination Digital Marketing.

Leading on from the May session that helped delegates brush up their photography skills, Debbie will be leading a hands-on session in social media marketing for businesses, focussing on making content for Instagram, including how to use Reels for business.

Debbie's team handle social media and digital marketing for many brands across the UK, and have picked up a few tricks along the way. If you have a burning question about social media, then seize the chance to get an answer.

We will hear about the latest developments at the Peak District National Park Authority, who are our venue hosts for the evening.

You will be hosted by FSB Membership Advisor Ian Pownall and Debbie Porter, FSB volunteer and founder of Destination Digital. Free parking is available at the venue.

To enable FSB to deliver a high level of customer service at our events, and to tailor the content where appropriate, we will share your full name and business name with the host of the event you have registered to attend. The event hosts are representatives of FSB who irretrievably delete your details following the event.  Should you not consent your full name and business name being shared with the event host, please contact [email protected] within three working days of the event taking place, with details of the event.
