North Notts plays host to last of D2N2 Business Breakfasts for 2016

HS2, European Funding and Cycling Fitness Analysis were all topics on this morning’s agenda at the last of a series of six business breakfasts, run by the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

The D2N2 LEP has run a series of six free Business Breakfasts at different venues across the area it covers (Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire). It is a chance to hear from businesses, tell them about D2N2’s work to promote the economy and create jobs, and show how companies can get involved in future projects or access growth funding.

Delegates this morning (November 23) attended the sixth and last of the free Business Breakfasts, which was held at North Notts College in Worksop.

The event featured speakers including:

  • David Ralph, Chief Executive of D2N2 – Speaking on recent D2N2 activities and the LEP’s future strategies given national economic changes, and about the potential economic advantage a planned HS2 route through the East Midlands would bring. Phase 2 of the national HS2 high speed rail network include proposals for a western leg (Crewe to Manchester) and an eastern leg (West Midlands to Leeds).
  • Guest business speaker Andy Bishop, time trial cyclist and triathlete, and founder of the Andy Bishop Bike Fit & Cycle Analysis Centre of Worksop, on his journey through adversity to set up his own business.
  • Matthew Wheatley, Growth Plan Manager of the D2N2 LEP, on D2N2’s European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) allocation, existing projects and future plans.

Previous Business Breakfasts held in October and November (2016) at Derby, Nottingham, Chesterfield, Mansfield and Matlock have also been well attended and well received, by businesses and delegates from other organisations.
