Meet the Punchline team at tomorrow’s Gloucestershire business conference

Visitors to this week's key business event - the Growing Gloucestershire Conference - have to chance to mix not just with county business people, but the team from this very website., which last month clocked 150,000 unique visitors on this business news website, will be at tomorrow's event (Tuesday, October 15) - for which tickets are still available.

Representing not just the business news website and bi-monthly magazine, but also Moose Marketing & PR, editor Mark Owen and members of the team will be in attendance looking, like everyone else, to meet as many people as possible.

"This is a great opportunity to meet new people from the county in which we all earn our living.

"Like everyone else we also look forward to gleaning as much as we can from the expert seminars - and 'yes', as ever, we will also be on the lookout for your stories," said Mr Owen.

Punchline's most recent edition - which features Gloucestershire's 50 Leading Entrepreneurs - has just hit the streets, but the team is busy working on the next magazine which will aim to showcase 50 businesses which excel at championing apprenticeships in the county.

Growing Gloucestershire is being staged at the monument to the business boom that Cheltenham enjoyed in the 18th and 19th century - the Pittville Pump Rooms.

This year, the theme is sustainability, connectivity and technology with a host of keynote speakers delivering speeches on the theme as well as breakout sessions, seminars and networking.

Jonathan Nicholls, chairman of Gloucestershire Professionals, which is running the annual event, said: "This is a chance for business professionals across the county to learn something new that can apply to business.

"The conference also offers a chance to strengthen and renew connections and catch up with those people we haven't seen for a while, and to build new connections with people where there is a mutual benefit."

Top of the bill of speakers will be Peter Cheese, the chief executive of the chief executive of the Chartered Institute of Professional Development, who will kick the conference off at 9.15am.

Mr Cheese will be followed by keynote speakers, Sophie Bennett, from the Cranfield School of Management, before breakout sessions and lunch.

The third keynote will be delivered by Tarra Simmons from the Midcounties Cooperative before Rick Sturge of the Bloodhound Landspeed Project takes to the stage for the final speech.

The conference opens for registration at 8.15am with the official close scheduled for 3.30pm.
