NC Associates’ next Quarterly Business Club (QBC) will be taking place in Manchester next month, in a collaboration between Cowgills, NC Associates and Bermans.

An invitation-only event for professional and financial service leaders throughout the region, this will be the fourth such event in the series. Hosted at the AJ Bell Stadium, the focus of the upcoming event will be on “Growth, Exit and the Next Chapter” with two excellent speakers booked in to share their insights. In this event, hear from Ian Brookes, founder, investor and advisor as well as Richard Land, former professional cyclist, and entrepreneur.

As usual, there will be plenty of insight shared, networking opportunities for attendees and of course, breakfast too.

Quarterly Business Club: 12th February 2019, 8am – 10am @ Cadishead Lounge, AJ Bell Stadium, 1 Stadium Way, Barton-upon-Irwell, Salford, M30 7EY.

About the Quarterly Business Club

The events take place – as the name suggests – every quarter, in each region (where NC Associates operates a regional hub, so Leeds, Liverpool, and Manchester). In most cases, we’ve attempted to spread these out so that there are events taking place every month across our network.
