DPN to host business event for IT issues

Businesses of all sizes are being invited to attend a growth and development evening being held at the Acorn in Penzance next week. Hosted by Digital Peninsula Network, who have Objective One and South West Regional Development Agency investment, the free event will be a chance for firms to receive advice from a range of specialists.

The event, to be held on Wednesday 8th June from 6.30pm, will feature a number of speakers as well as representatives of several business support agencies and DPN members.

Lynda Davis, Director of DPN in Bread Street, set up in 1999 to support technical and commercial development of people working with IT in Cornwall, expects the evening to be extremely useful. "DPN has always had an ethos of shared support, collaboration and partnerships between businesses," she said. "Traditionally we have assisted those who are in the IT and creative sectors or for whom IT is integral to their business. This event will be an opportunity for them to make contact with the wider business community." Jennifer Atherton, centre manager added: "The evening should prove a successful networking experience for businesses who are yet to realise their IT potential."

The evening starts with seminars on business growth, public sector procurement, staff and skills development, employing staff and obtaining funding. There will be networking opportunities from 8.30pm. Also attending the event will be 16 of DPN's members along with support agencies including Creative Skills, Cornwall Enterprise, actnow and Business Link.

For further information contact Jennifer Atherton on 01736 333700 or email: office@digitalpeninsula.com.

The Objective One Programme for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly has invested in the Digital Peninsula Network through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
