  • D2N2 Growth Hub activities to help small and medium-sized enterprises
  • work to engage business in environmental activities.

The free Business Breakfasts will also each feature a guest business speaker from the area where they are being held, talking about their experiences and companies, and what help they believe business needs from regional and central bodies to flourish. There will also be a short video shown giving an overview of recent D2N2 activities.
