Event Details

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 May speaker is Victoria Wilcox from Pictoria:

Do you struggle to take a decent photograph on your phone, pull your hair out when you see the awful picture a stranger took of you at that trade event, wish you knew a better way to pose and would you love to have the skills to capture better of your products or service on the fly? Victoria will be sharing top tips to help you get better moments in the bank, when you are out and about, and how to think about how YOU look in a portrait too. Bring your phone and make sure it still has battery left!

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.
