HSBC breakfast forums returning to Swindon for third consecutive year

By Anita Jaynes on 8 February, 2016

HSBC will host a series of six business networking events across Swindon in 2016, giving customers expert insights and guidance on how to grow their businesses.

Spread across two venues – Banks BHG in Stratton and Bower & Bailey in Regent Circus – the breakfast forums will offer guests the opportunity to hear from HSBC and keynote speakers from the region, as well as the chance to network with other local businesses.

The opening event will be run on Wednesday 9 March and look at the thriving rail industry in Swindon and how North Wiltshire businesses are in a prime position to provide a multitude of quality products and services to help it develop further.

Other events will cover logistics, PR and millennials and increasing your business activity in Europe through exporting.

Sarah Lucas, area director for Avon, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire at HSBC, said: “Now in its third year, we are delighted to continue a series of breakfast forums that will give businesses the chance to meet and collaborate, along with hearing from industry experts.”

Ian Dixon, managing director at Codiun Ltd and guest speaker for the first event, commented: “With the electrification of the Great Western Railway underway and the new training centre due to open in Swindon, businesses in the region are in a really strong position to capitalise on a number of opportunities over the coming years. Codiun has been providing solutions to Network Rail for a number of years and I’ll be sharing our experiences with other businesses that may be able to benefit from this dynamic and buoyant industry.”
