Rising stars to shine at networking event in city

Have your say

An event designed to celebrate all that is great about Sheffield and harness its people-power kicks off next week.

‘Everything’s Better In The North’ brings together 100 of the city’s most talented self-started and best-known business names at 156 Arundel Street, Sheffield’s newest hire space in the Cultural Industries Quarter.

“The aim is to get everyone in one room and see what happens,” said city PR Ben Duong from The North marketing agency, who is co-organising the event with former Pulp stylist and nightclub manager Ralph Razor, a Sheffield creative consultant specialising in cultural events, party planning and DJing.

Said Ben: “When compared to Manchester or Leeds, Sheffield is usually seen as the underdog. What people don’t realise is that the city is simply not as good as its peers when it comes to singing its own praises.”

The event on Wednesday February 11 is from 6-9pm. Register at www.ebitn1.eventbrite.co.uk
