Mansfield 2020 business networking organisation

A networking meeting with a prominent speaker with great news and a well-developed local business looking to share its positive news and growth.

First the group heard from Alastair Cunningham, agent for the East Midlands, Bank of England. Alastair has over 550 business contacts in the East Midlands that he regularly liaises with to understand the current trading environments and to find out about their plans.

The economy is growing. However, the big question is: ‘Is this growth sustainable?’  The growth has been driven by construction and consumer confidence.  In addition an increasing amount of business contacts are now making investments.

Alastair conducted a Q & A session providing the opportunity for members to ask business-related questions for guidance.
