Family affair as business link grows stronger

Brighouse Link continues to go from strength to strength with the latest gathering seeing 60 businesses attend to listen to guest speakers.

The event held at Prego Restaurant saw speeches delivered by Joe Formisano, director at Mamas & Papas and Peter Branson the CEO of Forget Me Not Childrens hospice.

The event was organised by Peter Sleigh and Debbie Story, partners of Sleigh and Story, Chartered Certified accountants.

Peter Sleigh said: “We were delighted to welcome Mamas & Papas to present to out network. Mamas & Papas are global market leaders based on our doorstep and we were delighted that they agreed to share the secrets of their success with our network. They are also the main sponsor of Forget Me Not childrens hospice so it was fitting that Peter Branson should also agree to present. Peter told us about his journey and what prompted him to give up a lucrative career as an investment banker to move into the charity sector and become the CEO of Forget Me Not Childrens hospice.”

Sleigh and Story run quarterly Brighouse Link meetings as well as quarterly Elland Link meetings at Bertie’s and include lunch at £15.
