Mid-Counties Waste First Ever Breakfast Networking Event
2nd March 2018 By Jan Johnson
Even though the snow fell 3 days in a row before the event myself and Mark Osborne were determined for the breakfast event to take place. Guests were dropping like flies; however, our 3 guest speakers were still on track to come…. So the show must go on.
It took me 3 and a half hours to get home the night before (I live just 5 miles away) so it was an early start on Friday morning to ensure I was there for 7am. Mark and I frantically ran around arranging coffee machines, breakfast, schedules and printing off the agenda’s, it was all very exciting!!
Our first guest speaker arrived at 7.45am and the next thing we know by 8.30am we were 12. MP Andrew Griffiths gave a great talk on his new role as minister of small business and seriously he has sooooooo many responsibilities. Next came Matt Clayton MD of Build a UK Business, he gave us some great information about GDPR and finally was CEO Pete Tryner from the Star Foundation, who spoke to us about the star academy and how we as businesses could help with donations.
Overall it was a huge success and me and Mark are already planning the next one.
