Mansfield & Ashfield 2020: Business breakfast

22 November, 2018, 7:15 am - 9:10 am


Mansfield & Ashfield 2020 hosts regular monthly breakfast meetings on the last Thursday of every month.  These run from 7.15am to 9:10am in the Eastwood Suite at Portland College.  Furthermore, these meetings regularly attract over 120 local decision makers from various sectors.  Each session commences at 7:15 for optional speed networking, breakfast and refreshments are served (with more networking) between 7:30 and 8, culminating in the official presentations at 8 until 9:10.

This month’s meeting

The autumn meetings traditionally deliver a high turnout of members.  This month, Vision West Nottinghamshire College will be sponsoring the breakfast meeting and they will be delivering the main presentation.  In addition, there will be an update from Ashfield District Council.  In short, they will be talking about their new place shaping identity: Discover Ashfield.

The detailed agenda is as follows:

Thomas Owen, Vision West Nottinghamshire College

Thomas will be sharing some tips for recruiting the right apprentice for your business.

Marcus Schofield and Gary Blurton, Mansfield and Ashfield Chad

Marcus and Gary will be talking about how local news-brands and websites are more trusted than some other forms of media – particularly with the rise of fake news and social media.

Brian Stopford, Stopford Associates

A quick update following the recent budget.

Martin Rigley MBE and Theresa Hodgkinson

Delivering their talk “Discover Ashfield.”

Each 2020 meeting has a sponsor who delivers the main talk.  This could be the ideal opportunity to showcase your business.  Whether you are just looking to generally raise your profile or you have something specific to celebrate.  Maybe you have a marketing campaign to promote or you just want to introduce yourself to 2020’s vast membership.
