This month’s ‘Bradford Means Business’ networking event, hosted by Kala Sangam, will see us return to the Bradford art centre after our previous visit in April of 2014. We have arranged for several speakers to talk about a variety of different business related topics, as well as a short performance by Vijay Venkat, Kala Sangam’s Artistic Associate in Music. Vijay is an accomplished musician who plays several instruments in various musical genres, he is also a fine singer and tonight he will perform a short contemporary flute piece.
We have also arranged for Foodworks to cater the event with their wonderful selection of homemade canapes, sandwiches and desserts. FoodWorks is part of SupportWorks, who provide a range of services and opportunities for people with learning disabilities. CLICK HERE to find out more about who they are.
