Devon and Plymouth Chamber of Commerce would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the next Virtual Plymouth City Conversations breakfast event.
City Conversations provides business leaders with strategic briefings on a wide variety of topics that are of interest to those in senior management roles. None of the presentations are sales-based and the event is not suitable for solely business development focused individuals.
