Paul Macbeth, Managing Director at Macbeth comments, “Macbeth recognises the value that meaningful networking can bring. We’re committed to raising the SME agenda and wanted to introduce something new to the Thames Valley. We’re genuinely excited to be sharing the innovative, fresh thinking that our industry-leading speakers bring with them, helping other businesses in our dynamic SME community.”
The bi-monthly networking programme will be hosted at Macbeth’s Theale offices from March 2014.
