Further Expansion for Derby Networking Group as it Enters the Political Arena

Press Release: January 21, 2010

Business on Toast recently received commendation and support from Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Derby North, Stephen Mold, as a large group of local business leaders assembled last week to debate the future of the regions business environment.

An enhancement to its usual Wednesday lunchtime meeting, the expanding business networking group received Mr. Molds thoughts and plans for the future of Derby and how his party would prioritise the support of business in the region as the catalyst for growth in the establishment of Derby as a global leader in industry and technology.

Stating that he was very impressed with his interactions with Business on Toast, Mr. Mold commented: Because I come from a business background, I want to make sure that I interact really closely with people such as yourselves (Business on Toast)Its only when we really support business that you create prosperity. If people arent creating the wealth and we arent supporting business, we (Derby) arent going to succeed. On enquiry into how he sees his future relationship with groups like Business on Toast, should he win the Derby North seat this May, Mr. Mold replied: I see as one of my absolute top priorities to support business in this area. I would actually like to see a Yahoo or Google right here in Derby and I know that that needs to be the marriage of knowledge, and finance. As an MP, you can only do so muchyou have to pick a couple of things and one for me is to absolutely be an ambassador for business in the area.

Along with its interactions with Mr. Mold, the group is again asserting itself in the wider political arena having recently accepted an invitation to sit with Derby City Council on its Urban Regeneration Initiative 'Getting Britain Back to Work.

Business on Toast attracts hundreds of ambitious and successful businesses to its regular networking breakfast and lunchtime events, many of which are demonstrating notable achievements within their industries. Providing advice to the public following one of the coldest winters in recent years, Bakewells Solicitors Personal Injury Solicitor, Darren Langton, recently went live on Radio Derby to provide a basic overview of the current law and what may happen in situations such as car accidents and the highway and cleaning your driveway, amongst other things.
