About this Event

Join us for our first online virtual business conference where we will hear from guest speakers and local Thirsk businesses of how to get the most out of your business for you and your customers.

The conference will begin online from 9:30 with networking followed by an introduction from our chairman Guy Baragwanath starting at 9:40, giving you enough time to grab a cuppa and get comfy. At 9:45 we will be jumping straight into the business sessions featuring guest speakers from various sectors delivering talks on how to adapt, grow and manage your businesses.

  • ‘Social media, sorted’ Lizzie Turner-Jones, Peachy Digital

*The Thirsk Business Virtual Business Conference 2020 is a replacement event of the T&DBA Expo which was planned at Thirsk Racecourse on the same date. We believe that hosting a large event in the current climate with the restrictions in place will not be possible and instead we will hold a free online conference in its place.
