Small business owners in and around Staffordshire: connect with other local entrepreneurs, online

Event details

We are back with our free to attend virtual networking morning for businesses in and around Burton. This is your opportunity to meet with other entrepreneurs, self-employed people and small business owners, to continue to network, collaborate and support each other.

Our speaker for September will be Paul Laffey, Chief Executive of Burton Upon Trent & District YMCA.
In his 10-minute talk he will cover: a snapshot overview of YMCA's services; the impact of the pandemic from the YMCA perspective; the relationship the YMCA has with local businesses and how businesses and their owners can engage with the charity.

Our meeting will be hosted by our FSB Area Lead and Burton business owner Elaine Pritchard, of Caittom Publishing. She writes articles, blogs, case studies, speeches and more for people and organisations. She has been an FSB member for nearly 10 years and a Staffs & West Midlands volunteer for the past two.

Attendees will each be given 30 seconds to introduce their business in a supportive, unpressured environment.

In addition, FSB representatives will be on hand to talk to you about ensuring you get the most from your FSB membership during this very difficult time.
