Employment & Business Club starts in Torbay!

Wollen Michelmore has set up a free Employment and Business Club in Torbay aimed at giving support and advice to local businesses.

It will be launching the first of its club meetings on the 22nd November at the Riviera International Conference Centre in Torquay from 8.30am to 10am.

Expert employment and business specialists  - Jon Dunkley, partner in the Wollen Michelmore’s Barnstaple Devonshire House office, and Simon Bean, partner in its Torquay office - will introduce the club to local business owners, managers and HR Professionals and discuss topical issues that could affect their business.

There will also be a talk from a guest speaker from the Torbay Development Agency.

The club will then host two events each year in Torquay, Barnstaple and Bideford.

The Employment and Business Club was set up originally in Bideford and Barnstaple xx years ago by North Devon law firm Toller Beattie, prior to its merger with Wollen Michelmore on October 1.

Wollen Michelmore saw the positive impact the club has had in North Devon so it decided to expand the club across its other cross-county offices, starting with Torquay.  

Jon says: “I set up the club when our office was Toller Beattie to help business in North Devon. The merger with Wollen Michelmore has given the club the opportunity to grow across Devon and with more support from other lawyers and business connections we can now provide a better experience to our members.”

Simon says: “I am really looking forward to working with Jon to grow the Employment and Business Club. There are many small businesses that struggle to keep on top of complex legislation and legal developments and end up suffering as a result. This club is perfect for people to get proper advice, training or general support from expert lawyers by either attending one of the club’s meetings or signing up to receive regular legal updates from us. The meetings will also be a great way for people to network with other employers and professionals.”

To attend the launch event on the 22nd November you can register here  or email events@wollenmichelmore.co.uk. The parking at the RICC is free with a parking pass which will need be collected at the doors on the day of the event, and there will be complimentary refreshments provided by the firm.
