lovelocalsolutions is based in the Ribble Valley and connects, supports and promotes Lancashire businesses via networking, training and events.
lovelocalnetworking events are informal non membership evenings which run monthly. They help business people meet in a relaxed way to build relationships and ultimately do business together.
Our annual lovelocalexpo in Burnley showcases 50 Lancashire business exhibitors and attracts hundreds of visitors from across the northwest to meet, mingle, build their networks and grow their businesses. Attendees can attend expert seminars on hot topics, take part in speed-networking and relax at the on-site café.
Half day workshops via our lovelocaltraining arm can teach you to network effectively, improve communication and teamwork both internally and with clients, and to boost your wellbeing and productivity both inside and outside work via building your resilience.
What one top tip would you give to a business owner embarking on a growth plan?
Don’t reinvent the wheel, leverage your network and ask those you trust around you for advice and ideas (including your Boost advisers of course). This can often open the door to diversifications or avenues you hadn’t even considered. You don’t have to act on all of it, incorporate what sounds good and ignore what doesn’t!
Why is Lancashire a great place to grow a business?
Lancashire is a hot-bed for start-ups, a beautiful green place to live and has many diverse and thriving communities. We also have three superb universities producing talented students and a wealth of established and growing businesses benefitting from this. I believe our greatest asset is that our county’s business owners realise the value of sourcing from, selling to and supporting local businesses – and that that is the secret to Lancashire’s success.
Why are you backing Boost Business Lancashire?
lovelocalsolutions was formed to support local business and help them meet and grow. Boost has a wealth of experts, workshops and opportunities which can take each and every business to the next level and beyond. Referring our networkers into Boost is a no brainer. Helping Lancashire businesses grow and develop aids the local economy which in turn will support more businesses to grow. It’s a win-win-win.
