We’re taking the Baltic Brew online via the video platform Zoom! Baltic Brew is our regular meet-up for our tenants.
We’ve been updating you regularly regarding changes to our operations and the support that’s available to you during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we wanted to take the opportunity to update you face to face (albeit online!) and to bring together some sector-specific support that’s available to you from our community and network.
For this Baltic Brew, we’ll be joined by fellow tenant David Parish (Independent Creative Industry Business Advisor), Richard Smith (Business Engagement Manager at Liverpool Chamber of Commerce) and Robyn McGlinchey (Pilates Instructor at Balance and Movement)
The programme is as follows.
