The October meeting of The Business Network (Banbridge) will be held in the Conference Room of the Banbridge Enterprise Centre, Scarva Road, Banbridge on Thursday the 27th October 2016 registration is open at 7.30am and the meeting starts at 7.45am.

Guest speaker – Edward Gorringe, Accountant

Edward Gorringe is a local accountant with a particular interest in business growth and helping owners to maximise their potential. He believes that small business should be able to access the same financial support and advice as large businesses, but on an ‘as needed’ basis and without the ongoing overhead.

Edward will be looking at how businesses can harness the power of cloud-based financial products to improve access to financial information and enhance decision making. He will provide a practical demonstration of some of his favourite mobile-based apps and show us how businesses can use them to operate more efficiently. Until quite recently only large businesses could afford bespoke apps, now anyone with a smartphone has access to technology allowing them to run a more efficient and productive business, and ultimately to save money.

Member speaker – Darren Bowman, Baker Tilly Mooney Moore
