Brand new series of workshops to launch in early 2021

Dec 11, 2020

We know there’s a lot going on right now that’s impacting your business: COVID-19 and Brexit, just to name a few.

But we’ve brought in the experts and we’re here to help.

Specifically designed for the North East food and drink sector, sink your teeth into a feast of workshops and training resources that will give you the confidence to plan ahead for the future.

In close partnership with North of Tyne Combined Authority and NBSL, we’re excited to be launching our Speaking From Experience programme in early 2021, featuring a jam-packed schedule of speakers, specialists and food entrepreneurs who will provide you with everything you need to get your business back on its feet and embrace the future with confidence.

From financial planning and COVID-19 risk assessments to digital and e-commerce know-how — there will be plenty of food for thought.

Workshops may be delivered face-to-face and in a COVID-19 safe environment at our HQ at The Beacon (Westgate Road, Newcastle), as well as digitally across a virtual events platform.

This workshop series is fully funded thanks to our partners and collaborators, the North of Tyne Combined Authority and NBSL.  Places are limited so click here to sign up to register your interest now.

A full programme schedule will be released soon.
