Event Details

A TV business guru, the Chief Executive of one of the UK’s largest outdoor visitor attractions and the owner of a unique sports fitness centre will be among the special guest speakers at this year’s D2N2 Business Breakfasts.

The D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) will run six free Business Breakfasts in October and November, across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. The annual series of events are run to update businesses on work being done to grow jobs and the economy across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire; by the private sector-led partnership of business, local authorities, higher and further education providers, community and voluntary services, and other organisations.

Each event will feature speakers for the D2N2 LEP – including its Chief Executive David Ralph or Chair Peter Richardson – and senior LEP officers speaking on its activities; including a strategy to make the best economic use out of a proposed HS2 line through Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, European funding projects, skills and employment development, the funding of the area’s economic infrastructure, the D2N2 Growth Hub’s activities to help businesses, and on environmental work. There will also be a short video on recent D2N2 activities.

The free Business Breakfasts will also include guest business speakers from the area in which the events are held, talking about their experiences and companies, and what help they believe business needs from regional and central bodies to flourish.
