Businesses urged to go for gold in Olympic talk
BUSINESSES have a golden chance to learn how they can get involved in the London Olympics as well as meet a medal-winning Olympian at a free event next week.
Chaired by Cllr Lynda Needham, leader of North Herts District Council (NHDC), the session at the Ramada Cromwell Hotel in High Street, Stevenage, will feature Alison Mowbray, who won a silver medal in quad scull rowing in Athens 2004.
The free breakfast event also gives businesses the opportunity to find out how to join the Hertfordshire businesses that have already won contracts for London 2012, learn from experts about London 2012’s procurement system, CompeteFor, and meet some of the county’s sporting stars of the future who are on the Hertfordshire Talented Athlete Programme.
Cllr Needham said: “We are very lucky in North Hertfordshire to be so close to the heart of the Olympics. There are lots of ways that businesses can get involved in this inspiring event.
“Please come along to the Business Link breakfast and find out more about the golden opportunities available.”
