Safari time for businesses

AN annual attraction on the Hartlepool business calendar will have a different feel to it this year.

A networking safari event is always held as part of the Hartlepool Business Forum season.

It gives entrepreneurs a chance to meet like-minded business people so they can exchange business cards and possibly contracts.

But this year, the event will be opened up to business networking groups thoughout the Tees Valley and County Durham.

The event will be held on Thursday, January 24, at Hartlepool College of Further Education’s Conference Centre, in Stockton Street.

It starts at 5.15pm with a buffet before the safari starts at 6pm, offering business bosses the chance to talk to each other about new ideas, potential clients and new business contacts.

Those interested in attending should bring diaries and business cards.
