Lancashire councils help businesses connect

25 September 2014

Do you know the latest trends in social media? Do you know the best way to improve your SEO or create a challenger brand? Help is at hand as three local councils join forces to give businesses across Lancashire that extra edge in putting the pieces together and make new business connections.

This year’s Central Lancashire Business Event will help companies learn the secrets of effective networking – both on and offline.  Local speakers will give their expert and practical advice on how to keep up with the new trends of social media, tips for effective online marketing, and creating a global brand.

The free event, organised by Preston, South Ribble and Chorley Councils, with support from Events Northern, is being hosted at Preston North End, 5.30pm-8.30pm on Thursday 2 October

Leader of Preston City Council, Councillor Peter Rankin, said:  “Supporting the local business community is an important part of our work and these events are always well attended. I am confident that businesses will go away with some great ideas to help them grow and move forward.”

Councillor Phil Smith, South Ribble Borough Council’s cabinet member with responsibility for Regeneration, Leisure and Healthy Communities, said: “South Ribble Borough Council is passionate about supporting local businesses, helping them to thrive and creating new jobs and opportunities in the area. This event is just one way we do that and it grows in popularity every year.

Its success is no doubt down to the quality of speakers and the hints and tips that are available on the night and, even better, it’s completely free to attend.”

Chorley Council Leader, Councillor Alistair Bradley, added: “A strong local economy is one of our key priorities and as part of that we’re keen to see a vibrant and expanding business sector. So we do all we can to support our local businesses and we offer a wide range of measures to help them develop and grow. Events such as these have an important role to play as they can give additional support and open up further opportunities for them to succeed.”

Take a look at the speakers and reserve a free place, but hurry as places are filling up fast!
