HEBDEN BRIDGE BUSINESS BREAKFAST IS GROWING !

My local small business group is doing rather well!     The Hebden Bridge Business Breakfast was a joy to attend this morning, meet chums, chat, socialise, help each other,  no pressure do see this clip for a flavour.

ZERO HOURS CONTRACTS, THE TV SHOW !

Following on from my recent threads on zero hours contracts,   I note that tonight BBC 3 is hosting a debate on this very topic.   BBC 3 tonight Wednesday 9th October 2013 at 7.00pm series "Free Speeach"       debate from Cambridge.   Should be worth a watch.

ZERO HOURS CONTRACTS, THE PRESENTATION.

On Tuesday 24th September 2013,   with support from the FSB I spoke at the Hebden Bridge Town Hall Business Breakfast Group.   A terrific gathering of local businesses organised by Amy Leader local business development officer.    Very friendly and welcoming group, I did about 20 mins on zero hours contracts,  a subject of interest I feel to most small businesses.  The hebden Bridge Times and The Todmorden News,  both gave us cover ahead of the meeting which without doubt would have helped the already healthy attendance numbers.  see   http://www.hebdenbridgetimes.co.uk/news/business/business-news/small-business-is-on-the-menu-1-6074628   Next breakfast meeting is  29th October 2013,   8:00-  - 9:30 am   Town Hall  Hebden Bridge,  no charge,   book in with Amy  Leader      amy@hebdenbridgetownhall.org.uk
