Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster currently has a number of active Sector Groups and there are plans for at more to reflect its growing and changing membership. The BECBC Sector Groups are for members only and provide an invaluable forum for businesses to meet others in their industry, to find out about trends and opportunities and to share information and knowledge with potential partners, clients and suppliers.
Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster meetings are held every month and are a great opportunity to meet other members. Other BECBC events include monthly training workshops, the BECBC Business Awards and other networking events, as well as specialist Sector Group meetings.
Business School Engagement Events enable students to gain a better understanding of the world of work as well as meet local employers who are members of the cluster. The Charity Page signposts you to some local organisations.
