Breakfast Banter – Business Networking Events

Business Banter is an opportunity for local businesses to meet and network in a relaxed informal setting four times a year. The Banters are held from 8am which allows businesses to catch up over a breakfast roll before the work day begins. There is usually a guest speaker who talks for approximately 15 minutes on any range of business related subjects from employing apprentices to the budget. These events have proved a great success over the years and the people who attend tell us they get a lot out of them. We welcome any local business to attend these free sessions.
