NBV Biz Ex Members and guests were welcomed to our Mercury House premises in Nottingham last month for the first networking event of the New Year.

The fully booked event was very well attended and the day started off with our lively delegates chatting and networking over refreshments and a delicious lunch time buffet.

The event was hosted by Food Profits Membership founder Marcus Kilvington who facilitated the event as well as making our delegates feel welcomed, relaxed and at ease.

Our Guest Speaker was former award-winning BBC journalist and founder of Arch Communications, Matt Youdale. Matt delivered a very informative and visually engaging talk on Marketing Strategies and touched a little on Social Media for business.

“I found the Marketing talk with Matt so helpful & informative for my business and I love how informal and relaxed the networking is. Thank you!” commented one of our delegates.

Our Biz Pitch winner was Biz Ex member, founder of Black Hare Marketing, Chrissie Rowell. Instead of telling us all about her own business, Chrissie chose to tell us about the upcoming Black Tie Fundraiser in support of Headway Derby. The event will be held on Friday 3rd March 2017 at the Genting Club in Derby. Tables are selling fast so please be prompt to book and support this terrific cause!

Finally, delegates were made aware of the exclusive grants and funding NBV have available to new-start and established businesses in the East Midlands. Lewis Quayle, NBV’s Relationship Manager, outlined the numerous benefits of Biz Ex membership which includes discounted business insurance and feature spots in our monthly newsletter that goes out to 16,000 + subscribers. Biz Ex’s promotional package also offers a listing on the NBV business directory, member to member offers, a dedicated business support helpline and much more.
