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.

One of our Partners is the 373 Group a business networking group that was founded by Tom Hope and Chris Lorimer with a view to help local businesses become successful through "friendship, collaboration and knowledge".

Upcoming @DBEC
Boston Tea Party - a manifesto for better business
25th June @ 7:00pm
24 Tickets Remaining!

In this online 373 Group event, Kate Ashmore of Rebel HR tells her story of how she supported Boston Tea Party in its  development of a manifesto that bucked the corporate norms, helping the business create a people led culture.  The manifesto celebrates difference and individuality, and encourages an empowered workforce, constantly seeking ways to do things better.  It's probably no surprise that the organisation has led the way in closing the gender pay gap.  Kate will reflect on her career in HR, and how people management is rapidly evolving. 

The 373 Group is open to all and is widely regarded as one of the friendliest networking groups in the South West.
