Blaby District Council is hosting its first business networking meeting of the year for local companies on Tuesday 25 February at the Marriott Hotel, Leicester.

The “Blaby District Means Business” meeting starts at 7.30am with the promise of a free tasty breakfast on arrival followed by a brief speaker programme, with news of apprenticeships plus free skills development and support programmes for businesses in the area.

Councillor Tony Greenwood, portfolio holder for Planning, Economic Development and Housing Strategy at Blaby District Council, said:

“The Council recognises that local businesses can benefit from support and they may not realise what is out there to make a difference locally.

“Small to medium sized enterprises are encouraged to book up to hear about funding, skills and support programmes that may benefit them.”

The programme includes speakers from South Leicestershire College and Nottingham Business Venture plus the chance to network with local business people.
