We were thrilled to have been invited aboard the Business Brain Train from Birmingham International train station to London Euston, meeting Vince Cable, Business Secretary on route.
Along with a host of businesses and representatives from UKTI, ICAEW Funding Circle and the Government’s Department for Business Innovations and Skills we attended a fantastic business networking event that with a difference. The day was hosted by Virgin Trains, in conjunction with Business is Great Britain and took place on a beautifully branded Virgin train from Birmingham International to London Euston.
The day kicked off with breakfast in Virgin’s first class lounge, before jumping aboard the beautifully branded Brain Train. Once on board, attendees had access to some of the country’s top finance and international growth advisors, including our very own client, the British Business Bank.
Business Secretary Vince Cable welcomed the train at London Euston where he chatted with us and the guests onboard.
The event marked the beginning of Virgin Trains’ partnership with Business is GREAT, a campaign that aims to celebrate and inspire SME’s, and provides relevant advice and information for those looking to grow, hire, and access to finance.
