Event Details

Derbyshire Towns & Business Forum

Brought to you on behalf of Derbyshire County Council & Business Peak District

Please join us in the splendid surroundings of The Carriage House at Thornbridge Hall on Wednesday 6th July for a stimulating afternoon of ideas, information, and conviviality. The theme, this time, is ‘Small Enterprises with Big Ambitions’ with a  (with a Christmas twist) and we’d love you to come prepared to share your own hot tips ... and pet hates.

As you can see in the Agenda below, we will once again enjoy topical speakers, interactive exercises, networking, and the now famous ‘Cake Break’. The Derbyshire & Peak District Towns & Business Forum includes that very rare thing – a free lunch, refreshments and beer tasting! (and we have free parking as well!), but more importantly, it is a chance to take a step away from your daily business, learn, exchange ideas and mix with your peers.

We know how valuable your time is and we make every effort to ensure that it is an afternoon well spent. Please register here – there is no charge and no ticket to print off or bring, but we do need to know that you will be coming. Feel free to bring any literature or business cards to put on the bring & share table and to pass this invitation on to colleagues or friends you think might like to come along too.
