Companies come together at South Yorkshire in Business

29 September 2016

Magna’s South Yorkshire in Business event saw companies from across the region gather in Rotherham to hear expert speakers and build relationships.

The exhibition took place today, 29th September, and was supported by the three chambers of commerce covering Barnsley and Rotherham, Sheffield and Doncaster.

Visitors and exhibitors were able to hear from speakers including Andrew Hartley, business development director at The Sheffield College and John Huddleston, communications and corporate affairs manager at Doncaster Sheffield Airport.

Brendan Hall, marketing manager at Sheffield-based chartered accounts Sutton McGrath Hartley, took an exhibition stand at the event.

He said: “I came along as a delegate to the Inspiring Yorkshire Business event held at Magna back in February and thought this would be the ideal place to make new contacts, especially as we have recently opened a new office in Rotherham. It’s been a really good way of getting our name out there and meeting other South Yorkshire businesses.”

South Yorkshire in Business was sponsored by the Sheffield City Region Growth Hub, Doncaster Sheffield Airport, Swift Print and Work-Wise.

John Silker, CEO at Magna said: “It’s great to support businesses in South Yorkshire. As a former steelworks, Magna is a cathedral to industry and it’s important to us to remain at the centre of the business community.”
