Organisers – CCP Business Network has been set up by Dave Thomas of Thomas Safety Services Ltd. On moving to the area in October 2017, Dave felt there was a lack of networking opportunities for businesses in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire and wanted to try to resolve this by starting CCP Business Network to help.
CCP Business Network is run as a ‘not for profit’ group. The Emlyn Hotel allow us to use their facilities for free, so the entry fee is paid directly to them.
If you have any questions, please contact Dave Thomas or Claire Thomas.
