A member of the Norfolk tourism community will be offering their lessons in business during a networking event.

Stephen Pitkethly, chief executive of Dad's Boats, will share his company's story and top tips for growing a company during the next Coffee Means Business event on Tuesday, April 17.

The Ludham-based paddle boat builder was set up in 1950 by Mr Pitkethly's father-in-law and exhibited at the London Boat Show in January.

The networking event, organised by business support organisation Genix, is taking place at Northrepps Cottage near Overstrand. It is the latest in the Coffee Means Business series, commissioned by North Norfolk District Council in 2016 to provide affordable networking opportunities for small businesses.

The event runs from 9.30am to 11.30am. The cost is £5 per person, payable on arrival. See www.genix.org.uk for more details.
