I’d like to thank everyone who attended the event and helped make it such a success.”
The event was part of Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks’ Business Week, which ran from November 9-13. The theme was ‘Growth through innovation’, a positive and forward thinking approach to inspire businesses across the UK. Over 200 events took place across the country.

Guests also heard from Andrew Smith of ABC Dairy Consultants.
David Hannon, Head of Agriculture at Clydesdale Bank, said: “Business Week offers customers an opportunity to connect with each other and share ideas and experiences. Sometimes hearing about the challenges and successes of another business owner can be just the catalyst you need for new ideas.
“Agriculture is a key sector for Clydesdale Bank, and we’re committed to supporting the industry and the professionals who service it.”
