We are delighted to announce our speaker line up for this years Cheshire Business Expo. We have three contrasting sessions to give delegates a wide range of content to engage with on the day, with our experienced speakers talking on HR, Social Media and one other business area. There will be two sessions in the morning and one in the afternoon providing delegates extra value right throughout the day alongside the packed exhibition floor. The workshops, presented by sector leaders, will be interactional, thought provoking and really give delegates something of value to take away with them from the Expo.

We have recently had a slot become available for somebody to host a workshop on the day so if you are interested in speaking at the Cheshire Business Expo please email with details of your proposed workshop.

They were the perfect hire – how did it go wrong? 

Business leaders find hiring sometimes the most inspiring and exciting part of growing a business or team but every gut reaction, interview structure and varied panel can sometimes get it wrong. Katie, founder of Talent HR and Recruitment, will discuss how attracting through to managing employees with sensible HR practices and a good recruitment process can support effective business growth. And happiness! 

This will be an interactive workshop so prepare to listen and share your people-management and recruitment highs and lows…
