Networking & General Events

Connecting with others is a skill that once learnt can be instrumental in opening up new opportunities, helping individuals and organisations to develop and grow.

At Devon Business & Education Centre, we want to provide opportunities for new and experienced business people and educators to expand their networks and make new contacts.  In the inspiring location of DBEC, networking is informal, engaging and value driven.
