Today I attended the Lakes College business lunch which was the last of five events hosted by Liz Parkes of West Lakes College.
The guest speaker was John Wilson of Baines Wilson LLP who gave an overview of the top ten legal issues for businesses.
I shared a table with John, Jackie Wilkinson a nutritional coach and Val Pallister, project officer at Lakes College, who offered up to date information on the Colleges apprenticeship schemes. I was also seated next to a representative from Global Heat Source, a Carlisle based company providing and installing solar panels. It was interesting to listen to his opinions on the changing trends in renewable energy.
These lunches have provided the catering students a perfect opportunity to demonstrate their culinary and hosting skills while local businesses mix and network in a familiar and friendly environment.
Many thanks to Liz and the team at Lakes College.
