  • How to grow your business.

A series of ‘Fireside Chats’ are being organised during which participants can hear from some of Cumbria’s SME leaders, as well as gaining insight from national figureheads.

In addition, Masterclasses will cover a range of critical topics including financial planning, EU transition, mental wellbeing, digital upgrades and more.
