Date posted: 19 July 2013

Businesses are encouraged to attend a networking lunch at University of Derby Corporate (UDC) on Friday July 26 to hear from inspirational four-time Olympic cyclist, Bryan Steel.

The event from 11.45am to 2.15pm will be held at UDC's Enterprise Centre in Bridge Street, Derby, and is organised by the Business Network: Derby, which arranges monthly structured and business-focused networking events.

Delegates will hear how Bryan went from being a scrawny young boy to an Olympic medallist - winning Silver in 2004 and Bronze in 2000 - and how business people can implement his four key elements of success, to achieve their goals and aspirations in the workplace and beyond.

After Bryan's talk, there will be a networking opportunity followed by lunch, which will include a live cooking demonstration by the Enterprise Centre's resident chef Nigel Adams, who will be cooking up pancakes and amaretto for the crowd.

Peter Motley, organiser of the Business Network: Derby, said: "Our events provide face to face access to a broad cross-section of decision makers from the respective local business communities, as well as seminars with inspirational people like Bryan.

"We are delighted to be hosting our next event at the Enterprise Centre, which is at the heart of entrepreneurship in Derby."

The event takes place on Friday July 26, 2013, from 11.45am to 2.15pm at University of Derby Corporate's Enterprise Centre, Bridge Street, Derby, DE1 3LD. Tickets cost £35 per person.
