Event description


Once again, this annual event brings together key speakers from the heart of local business, putting emphasis on the future of manufacturing and business within our region.

Following the Brexit decision, we expect the focus of this year's manufacturing and business seminar to concentrate on the possible impact on the Sheffield city region. The seminar forms the latest in a program of annual events jointly hosted by the Manufacturing and Trade Group, sponsored by Banner Jones Solicitors, NatWest and Shorts.  Held alongside Destination Chesterfield’s ‘Made in Chesterfield’ program, this event is open to all businesses owners within the local and Sheffield city region.

With initial speakers confirmed, more names are expected to be announced closer to the event.  Places are offered free of charge and early booking is always recommended.

Time:               Refreshments from 8:00am for 8:30am start

Start:               Presentations and Q&A to close 10:00am
