An author and motivational business speaker is to lead a line up of speakers at a free business start-up exhibition.

More than 100 delegates attended the first event in April and Business Northumberland is hoping to attract a similar number once again.

The event will showcase local businesses and entrepreneurs telling of their experiences within business.

Among the speakers is Paul Wakefield, named Start-Up Britain Business Champion for Northumberland last year and recognised as a Sage UK business expert.

Paul said: “You really can have the life and the business you’ve always dreamed of – you just have to stop making excuses and start believing in yourself, we’re all experts at something, and this is the first key to success.”

The event will take place at Blyth Leisure Centre on September 13 from 11am to 4pm.

Business Northumberland events manager, Hilary Dunne, said: “The event will be a great way for both current and future business owners to network and share their experiences with one another.

“This differs from usual networking events as it will include unique seminars to help inspire people and it will do wonders for the county’s business community.”
