Furness Branch Event
CALLING ALL YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS
(AND EXPERIENCED BUSINESS PEOPLE!)
Abbey House Hotel, 5.30pm on Monday 17 October 2016
In a bid to encourage young entrepreneurs, the Furness Branch of the Federation of Small Businesses has planned an event on Monday 17 October at Abbey House Hotel.
The event has two key objectives. Firstly, it is about encouraging young business people to come together and build a network of their own. The modern day business world is much more about communicating via Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter and although these have been a huge benefit to business, nothing can replace face-to-face networking. Secondly, it is important to pull the whole of the business community together, regardless of age or experience, so that the area as a whole can benefit from a collective, wide-ranging and varied input.
“We have arranged this event specifically aimed at the younger generation of business owners and entrepreneurs. We have two really dynamic speakers in Dan Austin (29), managing director of Lake District Farmers and Kerry Kolbe (38), co-director of Signal Film and Media, who will share their respective journeys through business and how to overcome the barriers that age might present to a young person starting out in the business world.
“I believe that we really need to be harnessing this young generation of business people as, not only are they the business leaders of tomorrow, but for me, business is best developed as a collective and whilst the event is aimed at these young entrepreneurs, everyone is welcome to attend as I firmly believe that not only can these youngsters learn from established and experienced business people but that we can learn a thing a two from them!”
The event will start at 5.30pm with a free glass of fizz on arrival with canapés and an opportunity to network, with the speakers starting at 6pm. The event will close around 7.30pm.
As with all FSB Furness Branch events, entry is FREE and the event is not restricted to FSB members.
We look forward to seeing you there!
