Award-winning bosses to speak at seminar

DO you want to know one of the best ways to develop your business during the economic downturn?

Then the in-Cumbria Research and Development seminar could be what you need.

The event will see the best of Cumbrian businesses come together for a special summit.

in-Cumbria, the business magazine produced by CN Group, the publishers of the Evening Mail, is organising the seminar which will examine how research and development can help businesses to thrive – in spite of the economic climate.

Speakers at the seminar, on December 7, include North West director of the year Peter Barton of Ulverston based Forge Europa, CN businessman of the year Mike Armstead, director of Wax Lyrical in Lindal, Mark Wilding, who created revolutionary cleaning product Lumibio, and Nigel Holmes, of Armstrong Watson, who will discuss tax credit available for R&D.

Legal expertise will be on offer from Caroline Redhead from Burnetts Solicitors on how to protect your products.

Along with expert insights the event will provide a perfect opportunity to network along with picking up some top advice from businesses who have transformed their fortunes using R&D.
