Exchanging expertise

RURAL businesses will be given extra chances to make new contacts at an exchange event.

The session will take place at Longhirst Hall next month to help new and existing businesses to showcase their brands and communicate with fellow entrepreneurs.

Carol Lynn, who is organising the Northumberland Business Exchange, said: “We get a bit left out up here. There are all sorts of business events, but there’s never very much for us in Northumberland.

“The exchange is all about helping each other and creating relationships with other local companies.

“Northumberland has some excellent business opportunities and a great support network.

“There is so much to offer people who are thinking about starting a business or have a business they want to promote. This event can also offer guidance to anyone who has a business idea.”

The exchange will be held on June 30. For more information e-mail info@sosvirtualpa.co.uk or call 07772 082533.
