Your chance to establish where your next recruit is coming from or to skill the staff you already have. Join us for breakfast and tell the education and training providers what you really, really want…

Breakfast Chit Chat
Come for breakfast and chat to those who educate and skill your workforce. This is a chance for businesses to chat to skills providers, tell them what you want and craft/find out what is on offer.
