I wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you for a well organised and informative day. If you were to do it again, it would only get better and stronger. One of the best local business events I’ve been to.

Following the success of the our HUBBLE-0 event in December 2012 we are running a second event, HUB:BLE-1.  Speaker biographies and the HUB:BLE-1 programme will be available shortly.
