Years Gone By

2020 will be the 7th annual Talking Point of Business Event. See photos and videos from previous years here.


The conference gives local businesses the chance to increase their knowledge and develop links with each other. The day was fun and interactive, and delegates benefited from a mixture of workshops and keynote speakers.
