Networking in Liskeard

 

Liskeard has a thriving business community. And though there’s nothing wrong with a good dose of healthy competition, we know that collaboration often leads to greater opportunities for all and the sharing of ideas encourages the growth of our local economy and raises the profile of Liskeard as a profitable place to do business.

Below are a few useful networking links. If you’re not on here, and you should be, let us know.  Why not have a look at the www.yourliskeard.co.uk/business/local-support-grants page too……
