South Lakeland Business to Business Events

We hold regular free working lunches and networking events throughout the year across South Lakeland. These events help us engage with businesses in South Lakeland and provide a forum for businesses to discuss issues that directly affect them. They also provide a ideal opportunity to network with other businesses and make new contacts. 

Free Business Event: Business Skills for Growth: Higher Education Special

We held a free Business and Networking Event on Thursday 30 October at Cartmel Racecourse. 

Speakers included representatives from Lancaster University, University of Central Lancashire, University of Cumbria, Kendal College and Furness College. The presentations were about the vast range of business support that is available.
