Marketing West Events held its first business forum in Wimborne, offering a platform for local experts to discuss business challenges and opportunities.

The panel featured PR guru Darren Northeast, Dorset Growth Hub’s Operations Director Nick Gregory, local entrepreneur Malcolm Angel, a business owner and saviour of the Tivoli Theatre, Dee Swinton from Dorset Mind plus Chris Conroy, cyber security expert at Dorset Police.

A number of topics were discussed including the latest cyber scams, funding and grants available to Dorset businesses, mental stress in the workplace, how to win a business award and the local business scene.

Organiser Nigel Reeve of Marketing West Events said ‘ We have had a lot of requests from attendees to our business awards for more networking opportunities and the forum is a great way to meet new people and also question experts on topical business issues.

“The event will be held this year in every area we run awards across Dorset into Hampshire with similar speakers covering the subjects local businesses want to hear about.’
