  • I had a fantastic time at the Salisbury Big Business Event again this year. I learned so much form the workshops I attended I managed to attend every day of the event.

    It was a great idea to have a selection of trade stands in the marquee outside so local business could interact with the public. Thank you to all the organisers for a job well done, I look forward to seeing many more lovely people again next year.

  • Salisbury Big Business Event – Thank you so much!

    This years event was great with so many varied lectures and workshops it was almost difficult to select which ones we could afford to miss.

    It allowed several people from our team to attend and benefit from the fabulous event.

    Looking forward to the next one

  • I attended Karen Levi Borley's session and found the workshop very useful.

    The information was easy to understand and the speaker was very engaging. I left feeling very energised and excited about putting the info into practice.


  • Fantastic opportunity for small businesses to think big !

    Great networking opportunities – I’ll be booking up for more seminars next year.
