A successful business event will be getting a revamp this year as North Norfolk District Council tries to encourage greater networking in the region.

Coffee Means Business events were held in 10 places throughout 2017, and now organiser Genix hasdecided to add a speaker to the events.

The organisation, appointed by NNDC in 2016, will hold its first event in Cromer on January 16, before heading to Fakenham on February 20.

The speakers at the Cromer event will be Sarah and Patrick Saunders, who established Norfolk Sloe Gin in 2011.

In Fakenham, the group will hear from Richard Harrison of See Thru Cleaning, who will give his thoughts on why his business has been successful. The business has been Fakenham-based since 1962 and employees more than 25 people.

Coffee Means Business is held from 9.30am until 11.30am. It costs £5, payable on arrival.

Councillor Nigel Dixon, cabinet member for business and economic development, said: “If you own or run a small business, I would thoroughly recommend attending a Coffee Means Business event. They are a great way to meet new people, share business ideas and gain valuable business support in a relaxed environment.”

Coffee Means Business is held from 9.30am until 11.30am, it costs £5per person, payable on arrival, and booking is not essential.
