Work, eat and network at Spotlight

Share this post:

Bondholder Spotlight is set to be a golden opportunity for people to network.

The networking area will be sponsored by ‘the hookup’ – the latest venture between Ask the Chameleon and think3, which is a speed-dating networking group for businesses.

Of course, no-one can network effectively on an empty stomach – so Marketing Derby will be making sure delegates are adequately fed and watered throughout the day.

This will begin with the networking breakfast, kindly sponsored by Balls2 Marketing.

When the doors open to the event at 8am, visitors will be treated to a delicious breakfast prepared by Butler’s Pantry.

There will also be complementary coffee served, courtesy of Nespresso.

In a statement, Balls2 Marketing said: “We are sponsoring this showcase event to support Marketing Derby and introduce our new management team to local businesses.”

As the morning sessions draw to a close, visitors will be invited to enjoy lunch, also prepared by Butler’s Pantry.

The lunch has been kindly sponsored by HSBC UK.

In a statement, the bank said: “HSBC is proud to work alongside Marketing Derby and other Bondholders in supporting the Bondholder Spotlight event.

“It is an exciting time to be a part of the Derby business community, working with and alongside other local companies and being able to share in each other’s success.”

Finally, Marketing Derby hopes that as many visitors as possible will join us for a glass of something at the closing Bondholder Queen’s Award celebration.


It will toast those who recently won recognition – including Marketing Derby, which was given the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation in April 2020.

The celebration is being sponsored by Vibrant Accountancy.

Bev Wakefield, of Vibrant Accountancy, said: “Marketing Derby has been an incredible support for Vibrant since joining in March 2020, through an incredible network of like-minded business owners, clients and suppliers.

“We wanted to give something back, and what better way to celebrate the achievements of the Bondholder community, all driving for Derby to prosper, than to have a bevvy with us #BevvyWithBev.”

Marketing Derby also understands and appreciates that Bondholder Spotlight is taking place on a working day.

And that’s why we have arranged facilities that will allow you to work while still attending the event called The Bridge.

It is a co-working space, which will be the quiet area for guests to work during the day if they need to do so.

Bondholder Spotlight will take place from 8am to 5pm, on Thursday 13 October, at Reach Events, Riverside Court, Derby, DE24 8HY.
