Our 2013 Business Seminar: Save The Date!

The Shepherd Partnership Business Seminar 2011

We will once again be hosting a breakfast seminar on Thursday 28th March 2013. All local businesses are very welcome, so please put this date in your diaries!  In the meantime you can view details of the 2012 Business Seminar here, which was well attended by local businesses.

The Shepherd Partnership Business Seminar 2011Our Skipton business seminars are well attended year-on-year, and have become a key event in the business diary for many.

The Budget will take place the week before – on Wednesday 20th March 2013 – and as in previous years this seminar is designed to make sense of the key areas that are relevant to local businesses. The programme will also incorporate 2 guest speakers who will deliver informative presentations on business topics that are pertinent to all attendees – details will follow in due course.

This is the third year we have hosted this event, and numbers have increased year-on-year.

The completely free 2013 seminar will be held once again at The Tempest Arms, Elslack, and will present an opportunity to network and learn alongside local, like-minded businesses. We envisage that the seminar will run from 8.30am-11.30 and all attendees will be offered breakfast rolls, tea and coffee with our compliments.

If you would like to be added to the mailing list to receive more information and booking details for this event once they are ready, please email rachel@shepherdpartnership.com.

Skipton Rugby Match Sponsorship: Shepherds ‘do it right’

For the second year running The Shepherd Partnership have sponsored a match at Skipton Rugby Club. On Saturday 20th October over 50 local businesses and Shepherd Partnership staff congregated at the club for an afternoon of pies, peas, beer, and good company against a backdrop of rugby.


It was once again an incredibly successful afternoon, with many attendees reporting that they had relished the opportunity to meet up with both familiar and unfamiliar faces.


The Shepherd Partnership was also praised for its good organisation, warm hospitality, and for supporting the local club through sponsorship.

Here are some of the comments received since the event took place:

‘…thanks for the excellent afternoon we enjoyed at the Rugby Club on Saturday.’ – Chris Windle, Windle Beech Winthrop Limited

‘…a most enjoyable afternoon and your hospitality was much appreciated.’ – Justin Birch, QualitySolicitors Mewies

‘…the Shepherd Partnership sponsored match is without doubt one of the best held at Skipton Rugby Club because you do it right. It is well organised and you get a good crowd down which creates a good atmosphere.’ – Simon Smith, Windle Beech Winthrop Limited

‘Good beer – good pies – good company!’ – Mike Vincent, Fresh Partnership Limited

‘Thank you all for a most enjoyable afternoon in Skipton.’ – Peter & Maeve Rock, Modern Equipment Limited

With such a great crowd and friendly atmosphere, it was easy to believe that nothing could go wrong at the Club that day. In truth there was one negative to report – the score….

Better luck next time!
