About this Event

Join us on 28th November, when two inspiring Cumbrian businesses will be opening their doors and providing a very unique kind of access.

From engaging their teams in dynamic ways to creating new revenue streams, Kendal Nutricare and Low Sizergh Barn want to share their proven approaches and invite you to be part of a day filled with ideas ready to be tested in your own companies.

Brought together by Be the Business and the Family Business Network, the Open (to new ideas) Business day event is a chance to get out of the day-to-day operations of your company and meet like-minded leaders ready to collaborate and share learnings.

By attending, you will:

  • See how two successful firms really operate
  • Get tips on everything from operational efficiency to people management
  • Get honest answers to the business questions you want to ask

Register today to secure your place alongside fellow business leaders at this exclusive Be the Business event.

Full day tickets are £15 per person including refreshments and lunch.

Half day tickets (including a visit to one business either in the morning or afternoon) are £10 per person including refreshments.

By entering this event you agree that Be the Business may use photographs or video footage taken of yourself during the event for marketing purposes including video production, posting on Be the Business website and/or social media platforms, or future Be the Business events.

Can I get a VAT receipt?

Unfortunately, the Eventbrite platform does not produce receipts unless they are VAT receipts. You can use your order confirmation as proof of purchase. Be the Business is not VAT registered, so there is no VAT receipt available:

“Event organisers can only send tax receipts to attendees if they are charging tax on tickets, which Be the Business is not. In this case, Eventbrite is required to collect VAT on the Eventbrite Service Fee from all organisers if their payout country is in the EU. As this is charged from the event organiser’s payout, and not to the attendee directly, there is no receipt available to send to customers.”

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please email us at familybusiness@bethebusiness.com.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes, please let one of us know when you arrive, and you will be able to register on the day. As our events usually sell out we would be grateful if you could let us know if you are unable to attend so we can pass your ticket on.
