Encouraging business in Central Bedfordshire
is one of the many roles undertaken by Moira Caborn and colleagues
at Shuttleworth College.
Best known as a centre for land-based
learning, Shuttleworth College’s Mansion House is also a super
setting for meetings.
Moira has been fostering relationships with
Business Link and other organisations to put Shuttleworth on the
map in the minds of local entrepreneurs.
Most recently, local ‘Enterprising Woman of
the Year’ Sally Aspinall was a guest speaker at an event to mark
Global Entrepreneurship Week.
Global enterprise is certainly
something encouraged at Shuttleworth which is an agricultural
centre of expertise and recognised the world over.
Now the doors of Shuttleworth College and
Mansion House will be opened even more widely to welcome in those
who want to develop their skills and expertise in business. Whether
it be through general networking events, specialist groups like a
Floristry trade club or land-based learning for those wanting to
generate an income from “the good life” be it from an allotment or
Professional farmers will also be able to sign
up for courses, helping them to develop and diversify business
opportunities on their land.
