​​​​Valley at Work Meetings

We meet between 6pm and 8.30pm, at a local venue, usually on the first Wednesday of every month.

With the exception of the Rossendale Business Awards ceremony in December and the AGM in July, all our meetings are free of charge to attend (unless there is food), and everyone is welcome.

Our meetings are deliberately friendly and informal – there’s plenty of time to circulate and get to know everyone. You are not obliged to pitch your business or provide referrals for other attendees.

If you would like to come along to any meeting, or you would like to receive regular email updates, please contact enquiries@valleyatwork.co.uk and let us know.

Next Meeting:  Wednesday September 1st, 6.00pm – 8.00pm.

Location: Winter Solicitors, Winter House, Lee Street, Bacup OL13 0BQ

Speaker: Rob Carder

Topic: More Marketing Mishaps

When I used to have a proper job (many, many years ago), I was a marketing person. I could talk for hours (and hours and hours) about how to help more customers find you, but that wouldn’t be as much fun as showing how businesses (usually the big boys) can get it wrong. Because we can all learn from somebody else’s car crash, can’t we? Or at the very least have a good laugh at their expense. This meeting, like most of our others, is free of charge to attend.

Everyone is always welcome at a Valley at Work meeting, whether it’s virtual or not! Please come along and join us if you can.
