Rushcliffe Business Partnership kicks off the year with its ‘New Year, New You: Personal and Business Wellbeing’ event at Rushcliffe Arena next Wednesday, January 25. 


It’s the perfect way for business owners and start-ups to get themselves and their businesses further ready for the year ahead, hear how others are motivating their teams, themselves and honing their skills and all while enjoying a great opportunity to meet new people and network. 


The lively two-hour event from 9.30am to 11.30am hosted by Rushcliffe Business Partnership (RBP) packs in three speakers, exhibition stands from local businesses, plus the opportunity for business owners to meet and talk with each other.

  • Kari Olsen-Porthouse, Freelance Choir Director – Singing together and ‘Shining to Success’
  • Shaquille Porteous, Personal Trainer – Your nutrition, exercise and mindset for the year ahead
  • Mike Ader, Business Coach – ‘How can we become the best we can be, as often as we can be?’

A selection of on-theme businesses and business support exhibitors will be present too.


Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Business and Growth Cllr Andy Edyvean, will welcome everyone to the event. 


He said: “This is the perfect event for Rushcliffe business owners to refresh their approach for 2023.

“We know that the last few years have been challenging for small businesses, adjusting to online working, now facing rising fuel bills, inflation and supply issues. 


“Rushcliffe remains a great place to do business and we’re delighted to welcome local business-owners to Rushcliffe Arena to support each other in getting 2023 off to the strongest possible start.”


The event is chaired by Shamshad Walker, marketing consultant and vice-chair of RBP. 


She added: “Rushcliffe Business Partnership is all about making connections and businesses supporting each other. 


“We’re excited to be launching our new programme of quarterly events with our ‘New Year, New You’ workshop, which we hope will be just the right combination of informative and inspiring – as well as offering plenty of opportunity for businesses to meet and talk to each other”.           


If you run a small-business, are starting one up or thinking of doing so, you’re welcome to come along, there’s no need to be an RBP member. 


Book your place for just £10, including refreshments.


The event kicks off a new set of quarterly events being run by RBP to support local businesses this year. 


April’s event will herald the start of the new financial year with a focus on business and personal finance and tendering. 


In July, business owners will have the chance to visit Rushcliffe Country Park near Ruddington, to discuss their carbon footprints and learn more about advice and toolkits available to help small and medium-sized enterprises manage their environmental impact. 


Event attendees will be asked what other topics interest them and October’s theme is being held open to fill with one of their choices.


In addition to these action-packed quarterly events, Rushcliffe Business Partnership offers monthly networking gatherings in West Bridgford and Ruddington.
