BUSINESS LEADERS BREAKFAST *online*
Guest Speaker - Mark Bolton - Principle Yeovil College
What is this special Online 'Business Leaders Breakfast'?
The BLB was devised out of our member surveys which consistently indicate a requirement for big-picture insight and interaction with key figures. A top-level networking event, targeted towards business leaders and owners. Headlined with a keynote speaker discussing what they do for the local business community.
The standard Q&A session is also included, allowing you to ask those vital questions that affect you within your business. Please submit your questions before 3pm on Tuesday 11th May, due to the online format of the meeting these will be asked on your behalf. If you would like your question to be asked anonymously please state this in your email.
