Network Skills Cumbria
If you live or work in Cumbria you’re probably wondering which events, networking opportunities and training courses are the best to attend to hone your network skills in Cumbria. Here’s our take…
Networking, or not working?
Here’s our take on the local networking – which events are worth attending and what can I get out of them?
Want to influence Carlisle’s decision-makers?
Carlisle Ambassadors is a group that meets regularly to essentially discuss how to make the city a better place to live and work. You can attend as a guest, and it’s a unique opportunity to meet over 100 likeminded businesses. Carlisle Ambassadors.
Don’t mind an early start?
We like the BNI meetings because they start very early and are run in a structured efficient way. Members do business with each other, and we regularly hear good things about deals struck up at BNI events. BNI Carlisle.
Make an impression with some of the County’s big energy hitters?
BECBC members meet every first Wednesday of the month for a useful update on everything in the nuclear world. Looking to get in with some of the county’s big energy hitters. Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster.
For a full rundown of this month’s events check out in-Cumbria magazine – where you’ll also find a feature about what our MD gets up to in his spare time.
Cumbria Chamber of Commerce is the main local training provider. They work with local experts to organise training on a variety of topics, as well as amazing support for new businesses. You can essentially get your own business guru on tap for free if you’re starting up. Cumbria Chamber of Commerce
Fancy some free training?
The Edge network is another great opportunity to get FREE or FUNDED training locally. Thousands of training opportunities including longer term qualifications are provided by this EU funded project.
