FREE networking event will get local businesses blooming

Blooms and Business Networking Event

Talent United, our employer engagement initiative, will host a FREE networking event for local businesses on Thursday 27 February from 5.00pm to 6.30pm.

Local entrepreneur, Carole Wickham, of florist Wickham and Taylor will be telling the story of how she has established her thriving business, and giving delegates an opportunity to put their floristry skills to the test by hosting a short workshop.

Jess Widdowson, Enterprise Team Leader at Barnsley College, will speak about Talent United, the College’s employer engagement initiative, which aims to bridge the gap between education and employment, and how you can get involved. An open networking session and complimentary refreshments will be provided for guests.

Jess said: “We look forward to welcoming attendees to this event to enjoy a glass of fizz whilst hearing about how to get involved in a great programme that can make a positive impact on a young person’s life and their business.”

Talent United regularly hosts free partner-led networking events and Masterclasses designed to develop key skills. These events are open to everyone, which makes them perfect for those aspiring to broaden their network of local contacts, business owners wanting to introduce new skills, or individuals with an interest in a particular subject.

Places are limited, so businesses are being encouraged to book via Eventbrite. Alternatively, employers can reserve a place by contacting our Enterprise department by calling 01226 216 411 or by emailing
