MORAY BUSINESS WEEK 2016 – An Appetite for Success

In Chamber News by Sarah Medcraf

 Tea and Bacon rolls are on the table and a programme of events to inspire businesses across Moray to grow and innovate is also being served up across Moray Business Week, 14-18 November.

This year there will be a number of core events, mostly run over breakfast and lunch to try to avoid eating too much into the business day, all designed to offer something for everyone regardless of the size and nature of their business.

Event topics will include the recruitment of apprentices; business opportunities around the A96 upgrade and rail improvements in Moray; advice on exporting goods and services with a chance to talk to successful exporters; business growth planning and a window dresser from top retailer Marks and Spencer to give tips and advice on designing your shopfront.

A full programme of events, all free of charge and to be held at venues in Forres, Elgin and Rothes is on www.moraybusinessweek.com. Bookings should be made through Eventbrite:  http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/moray-business-week-11132840164.

The week will also celebrate Moray business with the Moray Chamber of Commerce Awards lunch on Wednesday at the Stotfield Hotel in Lossiemouth, with tickets at £25 per person available directly from Moray Chamber.

Sarah Medcraf, Chief Executive Officer at Moray Chamber of Commerce said: “This is a brilliant programme of events for businesses of all sizes and sectors.  After analysing the feedback from attendees last year we have introduced breakfasts as we appreciate that most people have very limited time to spend outwith their business and we felt it would be valuable to combine the two.  November may feel some time off but we urge people to book now as places on some events are limited.”
