Members of Telford’s oldest networking club will find out about the latest project to revive the borough’s high streets this month. (JUNE)

Gary Halpin, of Good2Great, will be the guest speaker at Telford Business Club on June 14.

Members and visitors will get to hear about Telford & Wrekin Council’s Pride In Your High Street Fund, which is funding a variety of projects to breathe new life into town centres across the borough.

One of the main projects is aimed at helping businesses to thrive, which is being administered by Good2Great and provides workshop sessions followed up by one-to-one coaching in businesses’ premises covering a wide range of skills.

Businesses will be able to hear more about how they can get involved at the Telford Business Club meeting at the Loft at The Shropshire in Muxton from 5.30pm for a 6pm start.

Gary Halpin, who runs Good2Great with co-director, Johnny Themans, said: “Many of the businesses which are members of Telford Business Club are based in the areas which will be benefitting from this exciting project.

“As business owners it is important they know what we are offering so they can utilise the various sessions we are offering to assist them with their business.”

Mr Halpin said they had already had successful meetings with business owners and hosted sessions including social media training.

The member speaker will be Alasdair Hobbs of Human Results, a HR consultancy service.

Sharon Wyatt, Telford Business Club chairwoman, said the meeting would be a great chance for members to hear from two expert consultancy companies.

She said: “The Pride In Your High Street Fund sounds very exciting and I for one am looking forward to hearing more about it.

“This will be my first meeting at chair so I am looking forward to welcoming members and visitors.”

The cost to join the Telford Business Club is £150 a year, which includes a hot meal at every meeting on the second Tuesday of the month.

Visitors can attend at a cost of £15 per meeting. All places have to be booked in advance due to catering.

Telford Business Club does not charge any additional monthly fees and does not request people to send a substitute.
