FSB Connect event in Sheffield

11 Aug

You are cordially invited to the next meeting of FSB Connect – the regular monthly business network – which will take place on Wednesday 6th September.

“FSB Connect” members meet at Farm Road Social Club, Sheffield, S2 2TP at 6.00 – 8.15pm on the first Wednesday of each month. Attendance is open to all businesses large and small; start-up and pre-start businesses are especially welcomed.

The main focus of every event will be personal networking – (the event will be about YOU, not US!) Everyone attending will join their fellow business owners and entrepreneurs over a buffet supper in a friendly, informal environment. Aside from this, the event will feature a presentation from Julie Tattershall of SFSY. She will be introducing the South Yorkshire broadband Connection and Innovation Voucher Scheme. Darryl Carpenter, a Director at Sheffield insurance broker IFM, will also be our guest and he will be warning of the perils of under-insurance. There will also be the regular feature of our resident business mentor Rob Taylor of 0114 Marketing who will offer his monthly “Top Tips” presentation.

There is a £10.00 charge to assist us with the catering costs, but this could potentially be the best £10 you’ve ever invested! We do hope to see you there!

Attendance is by pre-booking only.
