There are Chamber of Commerce Big Breakfasts every month but nothing as big as this one on the morning of the 10th Cornwall Business Fair!
Cornwall Chamber’s new Patron, Lord Myners of Truro, will be the keynote speaker on the 30th October. He will enlighten us on the opportunities for Cornwall, what we need to do to make ourselves the best area to run a business and what the global trends are that Cornwall is – and should be – leading.
Lord Myners commented: Not surprisingly, Cornwall is beginning to make an impact on the global stage. As the initiators of the British Chambers of Commerce South West collaboration, Cornwall Chamber is working with our neighbours on behalf of business to make sure Government understands what value the Peninsula is bringing to UK plc and that investment in the region will result in comprehensive digital infrastructure encouraging 21st Century flexible working, state of the art renewable energy plants and skilled young people keen to come and forge their careers in this creative and beautiful part of the World.
Kim Conchie, CEO of Cornwall Chamber of Commerce simply added: ‘We are honoured that Paul has agreed to become our Patron and to take this active role in the Cornish business landscape. His global perspective and experience will have insight that every Cornish businessperson will want to hear and learn from.’
Members and non-members are welcome to attend the breakfast at the Sir Ainslie Sports Centre, Truro School.
