First birthday celebrations at The Business Space

Posted on: December 2nd, 2013 by Jack

The Business Space at Launceston is delighted to announce its first birthday, celebrated by delivering bespoke cupcakes from local supplier, The Pink Elephant Cake Company, to clients to thank them for their support during the first year of opening.cupcake1

The aim when opening The Business Space was to provide businesses in the East with training and networking opportunities closer to home rather than having to travel. The first year has certainly met this expectation with Dawn Hadfield, Business Space Manager saying, “It is encouraging seeing the diversity of businesses using The Business Space, and attending courses and events here.  The quarterly networking breakfasts are a new addition and are proving very popular.”

The Business Space is a venue hire centre located at Dunheved House in Launceston. James de Ferrars from Peter Langsford Davies Solicitors, recently used the venue for a Partners meeting and said: “The venue makes a lovely place for meetings and the food is also very good and to a high standard.”
The venue is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), managed by Cornwall College Business in partnership with Combined Universities in Cornwall (CUC) and Cornwall Council, and follows in the success of CCB’s Plymouth and Truro Business Space venues that opened in 2009 and 2011.

A selection of courses are offered at The Business Space in areas including food hygiene, first aid, marketing, web design, project management, team leading, assertiveness, health and safety, customer service, finance, employment law and enterprise, delivered by CCB.

To engage with Launceston business community, CCB and The Business Space have developed a series of Launceston Business Networking Breakfast’s which are held quarterly throughout the year, providing opportunities to network with like-minded business people to grow relationships throughout the region. The next breakfast is Thursday 16th January 2014.
