Business Fayre empowers local business owners

27th September 2018

Whiting & Partners hosted their first Business Fayre on Thursday 20 September at Knights Hill Hotel in Kings Lynn.

The event welcomed exhibitors from across a number of industries including insurance, software support, IT, Land Management, HR, Business Growth, marketing and promotions. Each business had the opportunity to chat to delegates and advise them on aspects including tips on starting out in business as well as how to grow their business successfully.

Seminars ran throughout the event covering important aspects such as HMRC’s new Making Tax Digital campaign, managing people within your business and considering support for those who often manage a number of aspects in their business such as Marketing, HR and Administration.

Whiting & Partners look forward to hosting this event again and turning it into an annual event to give local business owners the chance to network and discover more about some of the professional services available to them for help and support.

‘The event gave us a chance to not only meet local business owners but also to reconnect with some of the other professional services in the area. We couldn’t have done it without their support and it was a great networking opportunity. There were an array of exhibitors that attended and it just demonstrates the support available to local businesses which otherwise they would not have been aware of. We are positive that we can look to host this event again in the future,’ comments Stephen Malkin, Associate at the Kings Lynn Office
