Bristol Business Network April event “Success come in can’s” albeit there’s a Kant here!

March 12, 2015

Success does indeed come in can’s and forgive the tenuous link to Kant’s!

April 22nd is the date of the next Bristol Business Network event at The Bristol Hotel.

It is also the birthday of Immanuel Kant – philosopher extraordinaire – who said  “It is beyond a doubt that all our knowledge begins with experience

And that in it’s own way sums up what the event is all about.

Beginning with a business seminar hosted by Ken Abbott of Redwing Excel.  Titled “12 from 12” – 12 lessons from 12 years in business; Ken will be sharing some great business lessons that he has learnt over the last 12 years! It really does what it says on the tin!

From running a successful business, starting a new one and having experienced some of the challenges in setting other up Ken will deliver some great advice, an array of top tips that will be invaluable to those in business, those looking to diversify, those looking to start out.  Having had a taster of the “3 of the 12” at a recent Bristol Business Network event I can only say that this seminar will be worth the event cost alone!

Coffee and networking from 10am and seminar starts at 10.30am (optional,always rewarding, included in the price and a great networking opportunity!)


because Business Network SW has a pedigree and reputation for great monthly, lunch time networking events stretching back 21 years there is more….
